A Note aimed at some of the "Guests" who read here You are most welcome to read as guests...
One of the functions of a forum is to post information for the public to read and the discussion is intentionally public too. The whole POINT of a Forum is that it is a place where people can "publish" for public scrutiny, information and their comments on it.... so please continue to enjoy the place as guests.
It is nuts to have a forum hidden away from the public... even to hide just some cases away seems bizarre to me. Why do that? It seems as if people are hiding in shame?
However.... you are also more than welcome to register
and join in the conversation, or simply continue to just read, but while logged on. As a member you do have the advantage of better access... lists of current active topics, and a SEARCH function make navigation much easier when you are logged on.
And of course you can then comment yourself, if and when you feel inspired to do so.
Although "registration" is disabled, I enable it for people to register when I get an email request...email: firstname.lastname@example.orgI am happy to approve all registrations - membership at other forums is not an issue.
You should notice that at this site pages load quickly
, unlike at some (second rate) places
It must be VERY FRUSTRATING to be trying to just read, let alone post, at a site that continually has page loading problems.
Problems that have persisted for years (since 2008) and most likely will reoccur in the future
It must be very hard to follow and post about a live event like a hearing or trial
On the very RARE occasions that there has been a technical problem with the "Server" that hosts Random Topics it has been resolved quickly.
I deal with a great company (in California) that maintains their service and "help" 24/7
Note also that Random Topics is a "Donation Free Zone"... no begging for money for upkeep (and profit) here, and there never will be More about my views on "donations"....viewtopic.php?f=85&t=853
And... there are no (slow loading) ads
and stuff to slow page loading down
No pointless and silly "Forum Bling"
... buttons and mood settings etc No Data Base crashes If you find yourself "Off The Island"......... Just paddle over here to "The Mainland" (Watch out for nasty bitey (inconsistent) Mods)
