Sorry to put my two pennies in on this subject, but I believe part of the blame is with the Site Administrators i.e. BT who are trying to balance advertising revenue verses IP for Forum contributors.
The only way to resolve these issues is to make this a secure group and for BT to be made aware of exactly who everyone is (even if handles are used).
The Forum may be able to lose FDoS, Papillon, Ian (Hong Kong), Flying Chinaman and more – BUT THE POSTERS DONT WANT THEM TO GO…..
Tom, if this Forum is to continue then please find the budget to make this more secure, even if the advertises have to chip in.
FDoS contributes in a very positive manner and the Forum should not be losing his valuable contributions.
Vintage Krug also provides valuable information, but needs to stop winding most of the posters up!
