I have a suggestion: Since the kids are home from school and obviously have nothing better to do than post nonsense,
is there anyway we can lock the membership to this website for a couple of months?

I know its not policy but those crazy posts by new members just keep coming and coming.

What do you suppose we do about the crazy posts made by old members?

What?

And forgo the annual whack-a-mole hunt for the mods?




P.S. - now you know why some of us can get cranky at this time of year.

At a time when ATS is growing and growing, gaining more and more members you believe it would be the best course of action to halt the process of people becoming members?

Send an "alert" and they'll be dealt with.

Hey DG.


First of all, welcome back to regular posting, you know that I am super happy to have you back with us more full-time.


We're hitting these puppies as fast as we see them. The best thing, as you know, is to hit the alert ASAP when you see them.

If it makes you feel any better, I am investing in a genuine, aged, and splintered yardstick owned by a nun in 1918 to rap knuckles with.

I know what you're saying DG, believe me I KNOW. However you can't close membership to everyone because of a few bored kids. That's not fair.

*looks forward to Sept.*

Hmm, Rap Knuckles Nun. There's a good moniker for a Hip Hop chick.

Survival of the fittest, says I. Give a banhammer ass-whuppin' to the worst offenders, maybe warnings to those who we think can improve, etc. But don't close membership. That smacks of kneejerkism.

I was just thinking of a face to put with the image...



So for the time being, just like every other year when these threads pop up about the summer hoaxing that starts, this too shall pass. We are getting bigger and better every day, and with that will come more crazy threads/posts. That's part of why the staff is here. Tell us what's going on, and we'll do our best to fix it.

Well I got a heated debate yesterday by an old dear member that happens to be very afraid of what I let me quote (spew) in the boards now that the littler kids are going to be browsing the boards.

I am too unpatritotic for their littler ears.


Dg we have to be nice to the littler ones after all we are their elders.

I have two replies:

1) As a member registered here for 4 and a half years, trust me, it'll pass.

2) As a senior member of staff, trust me, anyone posting with the intent of being disruptive won't last very long.

Or how about re-instating the thing where you have to apply for membership? I would be happy to help read all the applications if it meant we could have a bit of sense round here.
