    SIte Changes

    A few changes.

    1.) I have setup woodsy as an Admin with permissions to accept new users. Woodsy, I will send you a PM asap regarding how to handle this and how to get into the admin. I do NOT leave the default link working as that is how sites get hacked. You will find that 90% of the requests are spam bots. I will try and school you a bit on how to spot them but ultimately you will miss some. Just be on the watch for anyone that you need to ban if/when they get by.

    2.) I have also gone through the big list of new user apps and tried to screen out all the spam bots I could. One may get through so if you see anything that is clearly spam just report the post and I will get it as soon as I can.

    3.) Lastly, although life for me is beyond insane (for reasons nobody here has any info on) I do try to login as often as I can.. which usually means once a day or every other day. If there is some problem with a post (spam or crossing a reasonable line in a debate/argument) you HAVE to report the post to make sure i can see it and deal with it. Despite my best intentions and personal desire, I cannot read every thread and every post. But I have seen only a handful of reported threads in the past 2+ yrs and of the ones that I did see, only one needed deleting by me. I consider this group all above the petty thunderdome BS of LATOC and as such I avoid censoring at nearly all costs. Nearly though.. so if there is a problem assume my ESP won't catch it and let me know via the report button.

    Woodsy, I'll get to you this week. The list of new member requests is currently empty so there is no rush.

    Spent the day today castrating 4 bulls - each 21 months old. I may be only 51 but days like today i feel 81 lol.

    More asap.

    Thanks for the update.

    I found this useful when I'm in a tangle:

    I'm 56. At best I have 30 years left on this rock in this consciousness. The slower I go the more I can take in.

    Thanks Alex. I look forward to learning from you.

    My thoughts are to be very careful of people that just appear. I'm looking forward to members recommending new people that they know. I would hope to get friends signed up without delay.

    Good thing I'm raising plants and not animals.

    Thanks for the update. I've used my edit feature to eliminate some double posts.

    If any regular poster knows someone who wants to join SilCo PM me their name and I'll try to speed their application.

    YES! I always liked Comrade Simba more than dead kennedy, for some reason!

    I think I'm still in the data base but with privileges turned off. I got too pissy for some reason years ago and stomped off. I figure Alex flipped the "don't let the door hit you on the ass" switch and it never got turned back on. Good on him, we get so serious at times.

    If you want I can change your name on this account so you can use the old name... but all your posts stay.

    just let me know.

    Oh god, not that stupid lion. Disney swiped my moniker which takes away from the mental image I wanna project... some wild haired native slashing his way through capitalist oppression trippin' on psilocybin. Nope, just some stupid plush toy.

    At least dead kennedy has seriously embedded an up yours to the establishment.
