We are still alive and kicking, even if postings are few and far between. In an effort to stop spam, guest postings have been disabled. I have never really wanted to do this, as I wanted to allow anonymity and allow people to stop by and post without having to sign up. Unfortunately this was abused by spam bots and it just got to be too annoying to deal with spam. Guest postings will be disabled for a month or two, to stop the spam bots. Then we will allow it again to see if they stay away.
The new forum software will eventually allow more flexibility with stuff like this, such as the option to approve guest posts. Until then, this will help stop most the spam and keep the forums more clutter free.
Going to be getting back into some deep diving and posting what I can. I never stop trying to look for truth and explore rabbit holes, and I love to share that here when I find interesting things.
Wishing you all the best, see you around
edit: the only boards that still allow guest postings are:
- questions and suggestions - journeys and awakenings - videos - music - random discussion - story board
This still leaves the door open though. If you want something out, you close the door/window don't you?
I mean some of the bots can still sign up as a member but it is definitely a way bigger hurdle than just being able to post real fast. It's an extra step that slows them down and makes them easier to catch. In due time I would like to re-open guest postings as it is nice to just be able to have people comment if they wish without the need for a profile.
