wildrose: Good advice. Citation of sources makes the board more useful and may help others to find more pertinent info and then turn around and post that info to the board. It's great to have the equivalent of an online notebook that's shared by others who share your interests in various topics!

In the past week four posts have been removed because they crossed the line of decency. The users were warned and I think they understand. Basically there's a difference between insulting someone and criticizing their behavior. Often that line is pretty thin, but it's important to know the difference. For instance, if someone says that IF JOHN DOE DID SUCH AND SUCH, THEN HE'S A SCUM that's okay since the label is contingent upon the behavior, but directly calling someone a scum is not okay. Although everyone is entitled to their opinion, it's best to be careful how one expresses one's opinion!

A few threads were merged and a few moved to keep things organized. Hopefully this doesn't cause any confusion for anyone. All threads related to the July quakes were put into one thread and a couple threads were moved to different forums. For instance, the Donkeys and Horses thread was moved to the General Environment and Nature forum. Just a little housekeeping. Nothing was deleted.

During November 2019 we had a record number of users online at one time at 411 people. We also had a bunch of spam account requests. I cleared out about 1800 such requests this morning and I during the month I cleared out well over 2000 other such requests. It's hard to say why there were so many spam account requests. Undoubtedly there were some legitimate account requests mixed in with the spam account requests, but it's almost impossible to tell the difference unless people follow the directions provided in the NEW USER thread!
