1.) Merry Christmas to all!
2.) Happy Solstice as well
3.) I must have deleted at least 20, maybe 30 drugs ads. I don't know how to get rid of these idiots!
Is there anyway to add a filter or to identify and isolate the drug peddlars ?
There is a secondary problem that every time I visit here, for days after I get uncontrollable spam that will not filter out.
As a consequence I am changing my 21 year old e mail address at the beginning of the year.
Thanks for caring and trying to do something about this.
Seems the only way to handle it is to " move out".
One concern of moving out would be losing all the
great information that wad been shared over the years.
I have been banning IP addresses but it seems to do little good.
I tried reporting these messages as I suspect they are of
I’ve considered using one of their phone numbers or email
addresses to ask them to lock it off, but I don’t necessarily
want them to have my contact info either..
Contact the DEA.. they would be interested in folks selling /hustling drugs on the internet.
The DEA .. Good idea.
I see they do have a local phone number.
What I'll do is to wait for another one of the gracious drug offers to be posted
(which likely won't take long) and then phone and send a link to the DEA.
Who knows .. Maybe the DEA is looking for some good prices on heroin for Christmas :-)
I see that we've got us another drug ad.
No doubt the DEA is closed until Tuesday the 26th, at which time I'll give
them a call.
At the risk of stating the obvious (which I'll go ahead and do since no one has stated it yet), how soon after the captcha test for posting on this forum was dropped did the increase in drug ads begin? I've only been on the forum for a couple of years and haven't posted a lot, but it feels like for at least the first year or so, I always had to go through the captcha routine (which was a pain, but not nearly as bad as these ads). If there is some relationship here, was the change something inherent in the software or is it something Big Nick could reverse?
I'll look into it. I don't know if the captcha thing is still a Bravenet option
But, I'm fairly certain that we were getting those annoying ads even when
the captcha filter was active.
Thanks for your suggestion :-)
I came across this map today:
So, if medical it's legal now in Louisiana.

Bonne année à tous!
