A few suggestions - where does your new topic belong?
« on: January 19, 2015, 09:34:53 am »

It is just so easy to put anything and everything into this "general discussion" section. Easy for the person who posts, obviously, but it can get to be a big problem for everyone else, even though most members do this often. In addition to the clutter in general discussion, many other areas of the forum are now essentially abandoned. Unless this is what you want, or you just don't care, I urge you to consider the following:

Please look at all of the sections and sub boards before you start a new topic.
Try to match the topic to the board. Give it some real thought.
If you truly can't see that it belongs anywhere in particular, then the general discussion board is probably the best place for it.

Well if you sent MamaLiberty a personal message there will not be an answer as she passed some time ago.

As to the appropriate place for your post, there is a singles dating post in the special interest area.

Good luck.

Heh. Elias deleted a whole bunch of spam posts and accounts yesterday. FannieSouch feels like another one, but at least her (?) posts feel like they were written by a human. Elias was busy interviewing a private school in Montana that was raided by police, or he might have delete FannieSouch, too.

Bill,

Editing into original message (below this new edit)

Bill, I think I found the way to stop new memberships from coming in.  ;)

Original note to Bill --
As you know, I've deleted several hundred new members in the past few days. I've just now deleted all six posts made by Fannie Souch and that account along with them.
Have about seventy more accounts to delete at the moment.
I am looking for a way to put a freeze on new members for a couple of weeks or so. Bill, if you can figure a way to block new members from signing up, please do so or let me know where I can do it.

Thanks Bro,
Salute!
Elias

I don't remember doing it, but forum registration is currently disabled. Maybe you found it (https://secure.thementalmilitia.com/forums/index.php?action=admin;area=regcenter;sa=settings)

Hi Bill;
Sorry for not notifying you and the forums. I did find a way to shut down new membershiops, and will leave it closed to all newcomers for several more days.  As you recall, we were getting close to a hundred bots per day signing in here and I figuired we may shake them off of being parked here by closing all new applications.
Thanks Bill. My apology!
Salute!
Elias
