Everybody, the thread below mine is disgusting! If you guys can, make new threads so that it will get shoved down and out of sight eventually. I don't know if flyaway will get around to dumping it.

I dont' think anyone will care if there's a few "pointless" threads put up to dump out this bad one below. 😎

'Course, if people reply to that thread it will get bumped to the top again. So don't reply to it, folks.

How about instead of posting 30 spam posts we just don't read the thread?

I agree. It'll be deleted ASAP 😉

Guest ED, you don't understand what I'm talking about.

I mean create NEW posts, NOT reply to the crap one, NOR reply to this, that way it'll be pushed to the bottom because of the new threads.

Don't fill the forum up with pointless posts then everything worthwhile will be on page two.
Just leave it be, flyaway will be along to delete it.

I see what you mean, I just meant enough so that the bad thing would be below sight.

I guess it depends on screen resolution as well, so I'd still be able to see it even thought others might not have to.

Hmm, when I first saw it, this was below it. Guess I have to bump it up with my usual request to change this site ti two levels of membership (One free that allows posting and the $5 version which gives total access).

The idea that any potty-mouth, pervert or whacko can post, makes no sense at all. Mad

It makes even less sense that it hasn't been deleted by Flyaway 🙄

...and myself and RadarMan have PM'd him and its still around. At least give the oppurtunity for an existing moderator to delete it 🙄

Moderating is like locking the barn door after the horse has been stolen. the damage is already done.

The best solution, whether it be terrorists, criminals, hackers or obnoxious posters, is to deny them access.

Allow me to notice that bad moderating and bad guests are two different issues which have the same bad results...

Unless the moderator is superman, or able to be here moderating 24/7, the problem will still exist.

Apparently, people have a problem with the concept of denying bad people access. Shortly after 9/11, someone asked me my opinion of how terrorists could be stopped from doing it again. I replied, "Keep them out of the country."

Moderating is like throwing the terrorists out of the country five minutes after they crashed into the World Trade Center.

I agree with that, but on our smaller scale such as this website, a bad post or two that is deleted within a few hours by RM and TTT, doesn't bother me too much because I know it'll be deleted soon. Its when it is left to sit around for a long time that is irritating, but I see your point entirely.

There are members on this site that are 11 years old. They deserve some consideration.

I agree, I didn't mean my previous post to sound self centered, sorry Embarassed

No need to apologize. Speaking from one's own perspective is perfectly normal.

In a perfect world, we'd all just ignore the idiots. Oops. In a perfect world there would be no idiots to post garbage here.

No meaning to change your mind or to be rude against you but dont you think that the parallelism you do here is a litle...too much???

And another point...Can you tell me the population of US if you have close the boards to all foreigners?I think that it will be the 1/10 from what it is now and things wont be the same for this country...my opinion.
The same happens here...if this site was close the members of it will be more less than 70500 something... Dont Know

No meaning to turn this discussion in politics i just give an example.Lets stay focus to the problem but lets find out what is the problem... 😉

Friendly to you dear Crash 😉

Greekman,

First, I always appreciate you views.

Second, while the severity of someone dumping garbage in these forum is much less that a terrorist flying into buildings, the idea of not letting them do these things is the same.

I appreciate the fact that a lot of folks don't want to lock people out. The software that runs these forums can easily be configure to require registration, including requiring that you reply to a confirmation email before being allowed to post. It isn't perfect since it doesn't exclude throw-away email addresses, but it is better than anonymous posts.

Dear Crash the appriciation is mutually,and you know it 😉 🍻

addresses, but it is better than anonymous posts.

As far as the above state of yours i have no reason to disagree.
But from the other side i have the impression that flyaway and Fly Away want these guests(im not refering to the bad ones)for marketing reasons.
We open the doors to anyone to bite the bait and the bait of this site,in my humble opinion is all of us.
Yes this great forum community.Thats why if you find an advertisment of this site(i have find one in past but i didnt keep it... Embarassed )the forums are in the second or the third,i think, point to it. 😉
We all clearly know that it isnt the downloads the attraction of this site(the last update was in the end of WWII),except maybe the No-CD crack...and the cracks section in general.

So why?Why we are about 70500 members?
Because if we try to search for the No-CD crack or any add-ons one of the first sites we find in google is Fly Away...
Great managment to this point.

So if ,for example, i had a local store and sell goods in the price of 5$ and i had found a way to bring the customers in,i wont care if some of them are not satisfied or dont shopping...
Statistically 2-3 to 10 are going to leave their money.Its simple i think.... 😉...Business 😉
Maybe the mistake is ours because we have a more human view than a marketing one... 😉

But at the end i love to do such mistakes 😂 😂 😂 ❗

Sorry for the big and full of language Embarassed diamonds post... 😉
