Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

It seems logical to me to restrict access to logged in members
if you're having drive-by abuses occur.

I do have to wonder why this site tends to attract such things.

LOL! Maybe we're like the old man that gets his house egged for
keeping the ball that rolls into his yard.

Food for thought...

Fair enough. There was just a lot of noise about certain people not being able to have their input on to various changes to the station. It looks like we'll be requiring logins for the shoutbox.

I'll likely handle that some time this weekend.

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

So we're all in agreement that logging on is required to shout.

At this time, the list of who's on-line will remain. Who cares if you're lurking vs posting? There's no harm done, no privacy violation, no feelings hurt. I don't understand the objection to the list. If you don't like it, don't look at it. I like it - if I need or want to speak to someone quickly I like knowing there's a chance of a quick response. If they don't respond, I'll try again later...

If there's a problem I'm missing, let us know and we (Roger, Vax, Davin and me) may reconsider...

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

As one of the people who brought up the online list, I thought I should respond at this point and say it's not enough of a biggie to try and come up with more reasons not to have it. Thanks, Jim

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

Same here, Jim. Not a big issue for me. I don't care if my login name appears. I got the impression some thought lurking was rude and, while I will continue to lurk (due to work constraints), I did not wish to be rude about it!
