Spam Accounts
This forum continues to receive approximately 200 spam account requests per day. If you know anyone who has requested an account without success let me know. It's very difficult to scan through the extremely long list of account requests and pick out the legitimate requests from the spam requests! I apologize to any real person whose account request has been rejected, especially if you have tried multiple times!

3. Provide a link to the source from which you are quoting.
4. It is strongly suggested that some form of commentary or introductory statement precede the quoted material.

Inaccurate Post Dates: A couple weeks ago I made a mistake while working with the database containing all the posts for the entire forum and some of the posts wound up with modified dates. I didn't realize what a big problem this was until I inspected some of the threads and noticed that in many cases the posts are out of order! There are even a few threads were the original post now appears to be a response. Oh well, probably not too many people are likely to notice this problem, but for those of you who do: Sorry about that!!!

The only one of my posts that I've found that is out of order is the post which should be the first one in the Moral Panics thread. It is now about the sixth post to that thread! What is now the first post is written as if responding to another post, but without a post preceding it, that post seems a bit random. I'm not sure if anyone would ever notice this, but it might be a good idea to alter the date back on my post so that it is the first post as it should be!

Fri Jan 11, 2013 2:26 am - Approximately 20% of all the posts have this date and that's really strange because many of them based on the content of the post could not possibly have been posted on that date! Something weird is going on with the post dates!

I've noticed that a few dates have been corrected. There's probably not an easy way to fix this problem quickly.

I've updated a few threads to reflect the original order of posting, but it's a time-consuming process and so I probably won't fix too many of the incorrect post dates.

It's a little annoying since some of the threads are difficult to follow with the posts out of order, but I can see that it's not an easy problem to fix.
