Looks like my days on the other forum are over. It's beyond broken. Getting this error message when I click anything -

Did you bash the forum or insult one of the thin skinned or racist mods?

That's how they got me. Started a thread about whether they intended to implement social credit scores and would we be able to access them like a credit score?

I had no idea this forum existed but it seems a lot like that place was when I first joined. I hope the Chinese don't buy this place too.

This place is owned by the members, and is not for sale.

if you see someone (like me) with a "Barn Stall" number, it means that they have put their money where their mouth is and that they are helping to support the costs of running this forum.

if you are interested in doing so, go to

User CP (top left), then "Paid Subscriptions" (near the bottom on the left), then you may select how many years you wish to pay for, or if you are extra generous, you can just donate to the kitty. or if you want to pitch in, but don't want a Barn Stall subscription, that's also possible.

Any IT guy worth his salt would whip out the Wireshark and capture the request to see what the problem is. Which means you can't ask @DJ_Critterus to help you.

I don't know if that's technically true. There is an owner or owners, but we're member supported.



Speaking of, has anyone heard from our founder/former owner, Gary? I hope he's doing OK.

I believe Gary gave this up and turned it over to one or two of the admins here.

And I like the member supported way, no friggin advertising and vendors.

Not as far as I'm aware. Only ever got time out once and that wasn't even for something I said, it was for something I quoted in a reply

Yep, this is one of the few rare places that will accept me as a member.

I don't do any money related activities online. I'm a bit of a luddite. No mobile phone or television here for example. Advertisements aren't a concern to me. I have a major mental block where they're concerned. I realize when one's happening but couldn't tell you what it was about after it's done. It's like when your wife is talking
