Is it just me

I fight for a week back in the fall to get back on and give up in disgust.

Then I finally decide I miss the place and try again. Two hours yesterday and the system never sends me a registration link reply within 24 hours.

Today I start again, changing my user name, password etc and finally break the firewall.

Then, while on another forum I come back and I am off line. Now it will not accept my new password when I try to log back in. So, I reset it with a system generated one.

I could hack into NORAD easier.

It's going to be harder than this to get rid of me again.

Yup......the whole security fustercluck implemented by VS has not been well received, nor was it even necessary IMHO.

Small price to pay. I am hard headed.....it eventually worked. Hope to see you in the spring.

I may even have farkles by then. My Tenere is currently naked. I am waiting on a bunch of stuff to arrive. My wife was amazed what she bought me for Christmas....she figured it out as the MasterCard started pinging.

all things in'ernet...sigh.

i'm kicked off of here about every four days. one admin personnel suggested certain browsers are the cause; i use google chrome and duckduckgo. i continue to use the password issued to me post-hack.

don't die wondering.

Well, Its keeping my info now. I am running Firefox.....which seems to be pretty reliable everywhere else. Maybe it was just teething pains.

Yeah, it sure seems like the forum suffered a massive stroke with the most awesome "security enhancements". Overall engagement has fallen way off, while the drooling persists...

No doubt about it.

I wrote a paragraph here about how I feel about this, but decided it's better for me not top say such things in public. At least we know how to get payday loans and Chinese brides.
