  • Toms gone... who's running things?

    The title says it all. I'm presuming the forum hasn't been left to be mauled by the spam bots, and I have yet to see anyone with a mod/admin title. Who's taking care of the forum until Tom gets back?

    Tom isn't involved with the technical details of running this site. That is the job of the site administrator.

    Supposedly he or she can be reached at "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page. i say "supposedly" because I haven't got a reply to my latest 'contact."

    If the administrator is monitoring this, perhaps he or she would like to comment.

      I know one possible way to get them in here...

      If that doesn't work, I don't know what will.

        That kind of thing, I would assume can get you dumped.

          Hi,

          There are several mods that keep an eye out I think. I think Greg and some others.. Much too much for one person IMO.

          I think the site is pretty much stable as such unless a server is down or maintenance is underway and there is software that automatically detects some spam, but some always gets thru.

          I am not sure, but I think the mods are move involved with threads or replies, or user issues and the like.

          Philosophos, why would linking to the Barr home page be an issue

          There is no need to draw them out with bait. Like the government, always around LOL

            Bill, did you have an issue with the actual site or is it an issue with a thread, reply, or user. Please PM me if you want....

            Hi, Gerry.

            My problem is that I haven't been getting emails in response to postings to sites to which I have subscribed.

            I'm probably doing something wrong, but my email address is correct and the option is set to "Instant email notification", so . . . ?

            Thanks for your interest.

              I didn't link to the barr report; I used a bunch of spam filter words and a link for free viagra, and it got changed to that later. It seems someone... or something... is watching

                  How strange.......maybe the mods can investigate this new issue as well where thread verbiage is replaced......hmmmmmm

                  I have been around IT for 20 years and seen all sorts of strange things with computers

                        Just great, Tom takes off for a day and the forum is starting to gain sentience. How are we going to explain this when he gets back? If this thing starts to be able to pass the turing test, we're all screwed.

                          Yes....something (the software) is watching.

                          There is software which can automatically link back to the homepage on basis of certain links or links that contain specific words.

                            All is ok, Tom is safe in the land downunder, he's speaking at the ANGFA conference in Sydney. Went to dinner with he & Dianna Walsted tonight. Looking forward to his talk tomorrow.
