    Some thoughts

    When I registered for Philosophy Forum recently, they asked about a letter in a word to curtail spambots. That would help (like, say, fourth letter in "Philadelphia"?). They were also ridiculously specific about startup rules. You had to introduce yourself in a special litter box forum before you were allowed to post elsewhere and a bunch of other crap. While that is going off the deep end, strengthening startup rules here would be useful. Or perhaps you could do what Skyscraper Page did: you weren't allowed to register from Yahoo! or Gmail (I tried).

    P.S. I like this quick reply box.

    Can we ban "bumping"?

    A bump reply to a thread is more retarded than BaltimoreBob's worst post.

    As an ultra-active person who loves event notifications, I would like to see an event posting thread.

    This a minor annoyance. When a large picture is posted it widens the page and makes it difficult to read. In Order to read subsequent posts it is necessary to move the page across the screen. Limiting the size of pictures would alleviate this problem.
    But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me.

    How about a GO DOWN button up near / next to the red POST REPLY button at the top of the page?

    I've seen this on several other forums and it's very helpful. It bumps you to the bottom of the page rather than having to scroll all of the way down

    Just a thought ... the site looks GREAT though !!

    Smile Consumer Area?

    I don't know, this might open a legal can of worms. But how would it work to have a section on consumer issues? As a consumer, I run into frequent problems dealing with every company I do business with--ISP, wireless company, cable company, land line phone company, insurer, and service and product providers of every kind. I post complaints on Complaints.com - Consumers in Control and with the Better Business Bureau several times a year. I know of Angie's List, but you have to pay to join.

    How about a section where people can post with good and bad experiences with local merchants and big companies? If Philadelphia Speaks publishes a disclaimer that they aren't responsible for what people post, would it protect you from people posting things that aren't true? I think it would be a big help for people looking for a good rather than bad merchant to patronize, and it might help keep at least the local merchants honest. They might be a little more accountable to the community if they're getting bad word of mouth when they don't deal honorably with their customers. And when they are honorable, they'd get business sent their way.

    I can only speak for myself, but when I share about bad experiences, I have documentation and I don't make things up. I can be pretty specific because I document every step of the way when I'm dealing with merchants and corporations. I'm finding from unhappy personal experience that these days, it's necessary.

    Would it be possible for the creationist threads in the Spirituality and Faith forum to be merged. Several members (myself included) have requested some moderation for that forum.

    The link to the TOS in that thread is broken. Does that mean there are no rules?

    I am a little upset in how this individual loveis noise is so familiar with my personal life (ie like who is in my family) daughter wife.,
    Sounds as if he/she/it could be a stalker or where he is getting his/her/its, information from. This person should be watched as a fraudulently seeking information .
    And if anything should happen to my wife or daughter . THIS INDIVIDUAL SHOULD BE FIRST ON DESTRUCTIVE TARGET LIST TO MY FAMILY.
    Thank you for your patience

    please keep me informed if . it is hitting a little too personal., over talking about waste , fraud, and abuse, immunity for some, prosecution’s for others. & then too bring up personal information not relating to the topic at hand.
    I did my time and I have seen how our us gov’t is ignoring millions missing with no intentions of ever trying to collect this money back.
    Or why our own politicians are avoiding these subjects like a third rail.
    ACCOUNTABILITY WE CAN BELIEVE IN
    wanted for conspiring to cover up public corruption
    reward or prosecution inevitable

    Yes Please put the search button back. I believe it helps in trying to keep some kind of order, so that extra threads are not started that are duplicates
