I'm a member of several other boards that use software like:

* phpBB
* vBulletin
* IP Board
* SMF Board

Just to mention a few.  Some of them, are maintained by a community of non-professional programmers, and they've proven to be much "professionals" then Pluck or Lithium.  I know that my posting, ON AVERAGE, has tapered off a lot in the past 12 months.  But the few of sites I frequent, is so much better than this site, and overall the people are much more friendly, and the "staff" is much more respectful of the membership.

The one site I like best, there are differences of opinion, like any where else; but the differences are handled in a very respectful way.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM ADMITTING THAT I STAND MY GROUND HERE, ON AARP.

But then, especially under PCE, you have members, like in just the past few days, or so, accuse others of doing what he is doing, just to try and make people think they are innocent as a new born baby.  But all long term members know differently.  He then calls others liars.  He accuses people like TxGrandpa2 and others of taking over PCE, when in fact he, and people like him has.

I've used the "inappropriate" report procedure to tell of obvious/glaring violations of the TOS, and nothing has been done, including the individual described above.  In private message(s), e-mail(s), etc, I had individual(s) tell me that they've also reported things, and that AARP has turned their back.

Some time ago (several years), I put up a post about changes in our Miranda rights, based on a SCOTUS decision, and the Moderators pulled it down, saying that it was profanity.  No profanity was used whatsoever, I didn't even use words like dang, darn, or shucks!

I think not. I tried to send you a private message and got the same message.

* Confused
* Light-headed
* Hallucinations


Business as has been usual for the past five or so years....first the AARP programmers, then we were Plucked, now fed Lithium.  And they thought they could improve on the old Prospero program?

Sounds like mental state of Pluck also!  This must explain all the problems.

Hasn't been working with Google either.  Just got back on...clearing cache/cookies didn't work and running two security programs was no help, either.  ~  Mimi

I have been trying since early morning, kept getting this page cannot be displayed, finally had to log back in, even though I was already logged in, and that worked!

Haven't tried to send a private message.
