A couple of concerns and a suggestion.
« on: August 13, 2015, 07:56:48 AM »
1. Why in the hell is this forum left to run as slow as a tortoise for the last few weeks without anyone bothering to address it?

2. Why are names of members at the bottom not deleted and banned. The one's that have not made any post's?


Those are my concerns..
Now my suggestion.
I suggest that if people cannot be bothered to deal with the spambots and clogged up member area, then I suggest giving me the powers to do just that, at the very least.
I am offering my services to simply deal with the bots and stuff, without affecting people who genuinely post here.
Now can someone at least address me on all of this because to be honest, it's bastard irritating that no one appears to be giving a flying feck.

Slight probelem: banning people stops them from posing but not from visiting the site.  Banning people who don't post anyway won't help.

See the thread about it here.

Account deletion will, but no admins, so what to do?

Account deletion should clear up the database, and give the server less to load, speeding it up a bit. With the magnitude of guests, however, nothing will solve that other than finding every IP they are on and banning it. But how to tell from real guests to bots? Or google/bing/yahoo's bot.
I am the worst moderator ever.

Sometimes I wonder: "Why am  I on this site?"
Then I look at threads about clouds not existing and I go back to posting and lurking. Lurk moar.

Too bad the last time I saw an admin was J Davis, and he did nothing helpful.

This site is dying. Even the trolls like Davis can't be bothered any more. The zoo is empty except for the last chimpanzee, Jroa, flinging his shit at as many visitors as he can before someone puts him out with a tranquilliser gun.

You can't get out of a hole by digging it deeper.
Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !
