    The fee thing is an interesting idea but I don't know how that would work in reality. Food for thought though...

    I've run a few forums [​IMG] it works well when you need real access restriction or age verification. I would think most active posters in the CE forum would pony up the $2, but those who like to cause trouble could easily be banned since they couldn't repeatedly pay for new IDs. Honestly though this is a pretty tame group as most communities go... one of the most laid back I've seen actually.

    Huh? Is this related to me?

    I have just (probably temporarily) put a minimum post limit on the Current Events forum. Guests and search engines will not be allowed to browse it, and members will (at the moment) need 100 posts to their name to access it.

    I am considering options, but enough trouble for me comes from that forum that I think this is necessary for right now.

    Most likely what will happen is I will start a separate forum for threads that veer off topic way too far into the "free speech zone" and that one will have the post limit, and the CE forum will then remain open for news stories and such.

    How about having a minimum time period (like a probation)? This way it won't encourage people to post whore.

    I can't understand why anyone would post whore just to get into the CE forum. It's not like it's fun in there.

    Yeah, but you could put a red velvet rope outside an abattoir and people would line up to get in.

    Tiger, can I ask you to just state your former position with the US Military, and what happened when I knew without any doubt that a longstanding member had wished a grenade on you?

    Can you tell me what you would expect me to do if I actually had proof that a member had wished a roadside bomb on someone else's Marine son?



    And to ANYONE, can you please expose to me the secret man-boy-love undercurrent of this forum? Only one person so far apparently sees the truth of what this site is really about. Someone, please, remove the scales from my eyes. Considering that I created it and have undoubtedly read more posts here than anyone else in the world (based on my web statistics), I'm surprised I didn't know about this. Please. Enlighten me.

    J is making no sense. It's almost reminiscent of a drunk Connemara...

    The only possible conjecture I could make is the regular self-posting by some of our 20-something, 22-inch-waisted members of their outfits.

    You would need a pretty sick mind to read such a thing into that ...
