OK, can some one tell Josh to fix me! This is ALDABRAMAN using Christie's membership. I thought it would have been fixed by now.

He's been told. Looks like he is in here, so no doubt he should soon have you going again.

When I tried to post I received a warning from some spam prevention system. If you keep trying to post...which I did *cough*...it bans you!

When you're banned you're supposed to press the "Contact Us" button at the bottom...but it didn't work on my Macbook because I haven't set up the email messaging system. Soo I had to rely on people to notice that I was banned, and luckily they did :)

Hi Lindy:

Its a mistake. We have a spam program attached to the forum and Josh is trying to fix the settings so that it will catch the spammers when they first sign up on the forum. While he's fooling around with it, it sometimes bans members who aren't spammers. We haven't yet figured out why, but it happens.
