Whud I miss? Besides a bunch of spammers...

Post by JohnBG » Mon Sep 30, 2019 1:46 pm

Sorry I've been an absentee landlord for a while. Two new grandsons (twins), work, and some other family issues have been occupying all my time.

Thanks to the moderator crew for dealing with this rash of spammers we've had lately.

One of these days I need to put some air in the tires and take the rig out for a ride...

What did I miss beside a bunch of spammers and Van/gobium getting his knickers in a twist again?

Well, WEGUNTER retired, TomCatFixer retired and moved to the sticks, the CRAP Rally was a big success. Donald Trump was elected President of the USA, ISIS was defeated, Notre Dame burned up. The Cold War ended.

How far back do you need updates?

I assume you mean my undergarments...... and yes I wear them. It is tempting though.

I'm standing by for the Moderator / Admin staff meeting to discuss the way forward for fending off these relentless spam attacks. The ol' ban-n'-delete routine is getting old. :(

Perhaps some kind of question(s) that must be answered to create your account. We can discuss it at the staff meeting.
