    People have to sleep sometime. Mods live in different time zones.

    I am sure that is the INTENT.  But – everyone should belong to, and post in, forums that suit themselves.  I like this one.  No authoritarianism, at least none that is taken seriously, and none from the mods.  So  I’m good!  Even sort of looking forward, in a weird way, to seeing just who thinks they are a bellwether or opinion-enforcer, if Bernie is not the candidate! 

    I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.

    Well I know of a site where they take care of spammers much more quickly, we call it SV here, perhaps you would be happier there if spam elimination is your #1 priority.

    Just Sayin’

    I thought the issue was handled rapidly enough.

      It is back again when I opened the site again about 3 minuets ago after getting an Error page again.

      All but two of the entire first page threads in GD were Chinese spam thsi morning (morning my time).

      Maybe you should go take a meander over to SV, your arrogant attitude would fit right in.

        You nailed his thread! It helps to have a running start. :)

        I’ve been to Australia twice, my brother lives there. Unplug when the time comes, and enjoy. One doesn’t have to go to Australia to unplug. It’s just a whole ‘nother level there.

        I think that you pronouncing that this site “is done as a viable forum” that seems a bit arrogant.   That is what people are reacting to.  If it is not viable for you any more, fine, cool, whatever.  But obviously others of us will stick with it.  We like it here.  No authoritarian crap, or at least, none worth taking seriously.   If spam handling is of the utmost importance to you, another political site that handles spam more quickly was suggested, that’s all.

      All but two of the entire first page threads in GD were Chinese spam this morning (morning my time).

      Why would I go to SV? I hate those cunts after the support they gave to the Libyan and Syrian murder wars. 90% gaslit neolibcons who are so stupid they do not see that they are every bit as brainwashed as the Trumpkins, just on different subjects and from different angles.

      I rarely go any any US political websites these days. Too depressing, plus getting ready to go to SE Asia and Australia again for a few months. It is always good to get away and see the world. I would go batshit crazy if I had to stay in one country for several years.

    I have not been spammed from this site. I’m feeling left out.

      I saw it one night. A whole bunch of Chinese or Asian text late at night. I just posted a couple threads on top of it instead.

    (Edited here at the top: I may have been a bit hasty: I did not see it before but now I see the spam folks are refering to…hopefully someone is on it.)

    How about a few changes to the registration process?  I think we do email validation, but maybe adding something more for human verification?

    Just for the registration process, I mean.
