    When you are banned/timed out, I think it says "you have been banned, the reason given is ____"

    Hmmm, a lot of possibilities. Do you ever type in "because you are a shitheel"?

    No, Fok sometimes gets crazy with the reason field, but I rarely put anything good there.

    ---

    Change of subject:

    I have just added a huge amount of IP addresses of known web proxies to the banned list, as I'm tired of people using them to come on and sock-puppet for each other/themselves. If you can't get on anymore, and you are a user I like with a legitimate reason for using a proxy, email me and I might be able to do something about it.

    J- I'm using firefox. It's not that it never works, it just is inconsistant. Sometimes it'll just time out, other times it'll work quickly.

    yup me too - itll just sit there spinning indefinitely. I end up copy n pasting whatever I wrote, refreshing the screen, hit edit again and paste it in.

    When we patch to the new version (possibly this weekend if I can get to it) that may be resolved.

    On another note, I have just IP banned the Yahoo spiders from crawling the website because they are rude and slam the server with many requests at high speed in the middle of the day. If anyone actually still uses Yahoo, I'm sorry that the search results will become stale until Yahoo learns how to program spiders that follow rules.

    Perhaps because this sort of thing: [​IMG] can really frighten people.

    It frightens me. Gives me flashbacks to my Freshman semester when I took multivariable calculus simply to prove that I could.

    From Dec. 1 to Dec. 7, I don't think I slept more than 25 hours.

    Are we no longer allowed to debate the quality of Kabbaz shirts? Because, if not, that would make this place like AAAC. Censorship! To protect commercial interests!

    I haven't the slightest idea. It is back now.

    Hmm, perhaps after all, a certain fan is on someone's payroll? A deadly game of chess played for a slice of cheese....

    Any chance of restoring the original shirt thread? It was somewhat informative, and not nearly as bad as many threads that haven't been squirrelled. I freely concede that my two side threads don't deserve to come back.
