    I had a strange problem but no lock up. Suddenly I could not post. Computer would time out. Try again. Finally went off Firefox and went to IE. No problem. After about 10 minutes I went back to Firefox. One thread posted, I think, 4 times. So that says even with the time out they finally posted. I just deleted the posts and went on. No problem since.

    There is a warning points system on the forums and none of us track it very well...... So mods just put on a "point" or two. If the points add up, the system throws errors.

    Nothing happens until they add-up. These are 100% at the discretion of the moderators. They also expire if you are good boys and girls

    Yeah, if you think that's bad, water boarding is worse! Much worse!

    There are actually relatively few assigned....so it's like like we throw them out with abandon.
    I'm going to guess that anyone can look at their profile page and see if they've gotten any warning?? Let me try giving myself one and see...

    I did look on my profile page but nothing shows. Not really sure where it would show.

    Craig, I will say that Scott is a well-liked member on this forum and he also has some excellent knowledge that he is able to pass on to others, especially in the Wood Shed. I would really like to see those points deleted so he can get back to posting. We need good people on here. Maybe it is the Ash Can that needs to be canned?

    Yes, thanks.
    I checked out SO's profile page and he has no warnings:confused:

    Could it be something on his end?

    I think only he and other mods can see them....do you want me to give you some so you can see them?

    This is like the students asking the teacher to carefully inspect the paddle......

    I'm pretty sure that only the moderators can see the warnings tab, Craig.......can't see any on my end (after 10 minutes of trying to open my own profile up).

    ;lol

    Ya, can I check out that new razor strap now? No need to see warnings though. I will appreciate if you would strongly consider my earlier post Craig. I like the old saw about, OK, get mad. Now get over it. Now lets get on with the program. Just because any hard feelings were created at the time does not mean this has to continue. It is done; over. Now let's move on.

    Yeah - can't see the warning I gave my other account.
    I will discuss with mods....we can make the warnings start a conversation, but I suspect the mods don't want to chat about each and every one.....

    As mentioned, we mods are gonna talk this over. The software has "features" that we may want to turn off - not to say we won't have warnings, but perhaps they will add up to a 1- 3 day ban or something like that rather than slow torture!

    Sorry about that. Up until now, we only used that "feature" on someone we wanted to get rid of, and none of you meet that criteria....

    I would like to pubicly thank Craig and the moderators for getting this all straightened up and it did not take a long time to do it either. Hopefully all will learn from this and good luck to all in the future.
