New member approvals?

I've had a couple of the Oklahoma folks tell me they're having trouble signing up here - is there a trick to it? I did mine so long ago I think I was still waiting on dialup at the time.

Thanks - I think that worked for one of them.

Member "Ted Kennedy" (maybe "TedKennedy") says he can login, but he can't post or anything. Can you see anything from your side?

It's a very discerning group here and takes time for proper vetting.

He needs to follow the user-verification instructions that were sent to acockrell@nordam.com

He tried again with a different email address, and now is "in the cue for moderation".

I'm guessing his first email was blocking the autoreplies? He checked his spam folder, but only found potted meat.

The word "ironic" is in disuse today due to the two facts that most people don't know what it means, and because all of the 'attempted' uses are so far from the real meaning of the word as to render its attempted use as null.

But this.. this is good.

The best example of irony can be observed first thing in the morning, "standing for the queen."

Can't piss until it goes down.
Won't go down until you piss.

It's in the best interest of the board if I don't allow any more statists in so they don't keep trying to control things.

Sockeye needs to click on the link that was sent to him in email to complete the registration.

Tower is fully registered, and should not be having trouble posting.

I'm pretty much the only one approving new members.

I do not do it daily.

I rarely do it weekly.

I will do it fairly promptly if somebody mentions it to me.

Its more like a monthly thing otherwise. I'm sure its gone longer.

Oh ok , cool . I thought this place was a secret society and new recruits had to show they wanted to be here by constant request for membership . Not really a bad thing now that im in . If you got approved in 24 hours we might get a lot more mikes !

Well that might explain why there are about 20 active posters, although I can't complain because I wouldn't do that job either. I guess most of the registration attempts are bots or flippers prowling the marketplace anyway.
