if any of the locals are running for office I'll give 'em their own topic!
I would like to announce my candidacy for President... am I allowed to do that here??
I am a member of dead.net after all.
when elected, I promise...
but seriously folks,
kudos to marye (and the other members of the Mod Squad) for trying to keep things in order here. thanks, marye.
I hate spammers of all kinds and like others, it irks me a bit to keep seeing the same stuff all over the place here.
this topic is for announcements about this system. Deadheads for Obama does not qualify.
We have a topic for discussing the 2008 campaign here:
http://www.dead.net/forum/campaign-2008-who-do-you. That is the place for posts such as this. Go talk about Barack there.
Since there is a very sizeable portion of the local population that is deeply offended at getting spammed by political advocacy in inappropriate topics, I put on my mod hat and say that such posts outside the politics topic will be treated as spam and summarily removed. I'm leaving this one for the sake of illustration, but any further instances will be deleted. Thank you.
Please check out this website! We have the power, we must unite!
I'm sorry, it won't let me print the html code! :(
If yall want it, just email me: Whofan917@yahoo.com
...and I'll be glad to send it along for you to use.
My kisses and hugs to you all,
no shirts, no shoes no stress...udawoman marye...keep up a most excellent job!
stay safe and feel good!
the very short version is that high traffic in response to the Road Trips announcement exacerbated some other issues, and there was massive server meltdown, and not just at dead.net.
Word is the Tapers section, which was dealing with some missing-file issues of its own when all this hit, will be up shortly.
Sorry for all the trouble.
