Guest Posting Privileges Revoked

    As of Friday afternoon, guest posting privileges have been revoked. Whether this is remains a permanent versus a temporary situation remains to be seen. This action was brought about mainly because the overseas spam peddlers have a new program which uses random ISP's originating in America to place their messages, thereby preventing me from blocking them. This has been going on for several days, and I have been able to remove most of the offensive posts quickly, thanks to the help of members using the "Report to moderator" function. However, with the weekend coming on, I didn't want any of these posts to stay on the Forum any longer than necessary, so I though I would make this change and see how it goes.

    If you are a guest, and you wish to make a post, you will now have to register and become a member first.

    I concur. Great idea. First thing I've noticed was the poor command of the language. Some of us have pretty lousy typing skills, but when you read a post that sounds like it's being interpreted by a non American English speaking person, it does make me wonder right away of the origin.

    Granted, there are some immigrants and citizens doing business here in the States that do very well. I have no complaints about them at all, and have dealt with many very favorably on the net. One just needs to be prudent.

    Revoking guest posting privelages also helps eliminate some of the slamming and criticism that goes on thoughtlessly and needlessly.

    Thanks Ken.
