I first got in contact with Mudcat about a year ago and have been happy to join in with what I found was a big happy family - not without it's problems. I gradually did become to feel that I could proudly proclaim that I was a Mudcatter!
Which brings me to my thread; Why are there so many guest contributions. I'm certainly not against, them but why don't they join once they have found the discussions relevant.
I can understand why a first time contributer uses GUEST but sureley if Guest decides to carry on on the argument he/she should have the decency to join up.
Since joining up I have not been swamped with Porn E-mail!
WOW it's Braw Tae Be A MuDWheeker!

Hi, Strupag. We try to welcome everybody, and we understand that newcomers and occasional visitors may be reluctant to register. That's why we allow people to post as guests. Unfortunately, we have some people who abuse their guest privileges, and take advantage of their anonymity. They seem to be here chiefly to cause trouble, to take potshots at people under the cover of namelessness - like an unseen sniper shooting into a crowd. Since people don't know who they are or how many they are, they feel defenseless.

In one of the Help threads, McGrath of Harlow made a good point:
A basic rule in life is that, any time you criticise someone else, you should identify yourself.
I think that makes sense. If unnamed people behave themselves, Mudcatters respond to them very well - although there's a natural tendency to group all unnamed persons with the many anonymous posts that are intended to cause trouble. It's best to type in a name, even if you aren't registered. If our Guests are here to be obnoxious and to take advantage of their anonymity, there's no reason why anybody should try to make them feel welcome.

Welcome to Mudcat, Strupag. -Joe Offer-

This is something that irks me at least a little bit. I CHOOSE to be a guest.   I think that is my right. If what I have to say is interesting to you, read it.   If it isn't, don't read it. It's as simple as that.   I will say the same things whether I am a guest or a member. Maybe it is a bit of obstinate behavior on my part, but I don't think it is a matter of decency at all.

I would understand it if, as in the old Broadsheets, the guest were allowed to remain annonimous which is understandable.
There is no justification for this in the new Mudcat era.
In Mudcat, however, the main contencious issues are, in the main part, raised by people who are established Mudcatters.
It pisses me offrt in a wee bit about people who continue on a thread and still don't join in.

There are folks who simply prefer to avoid cookies or post from work where it would be forbidden. Many of them post consistently with the same name and I tend to just think of Guest as part of their name.

Others change identities as quickly as threads can reload and seem to come looking to get a good brawl going. My patience level unfortuately fluxes with the demands of the real world. But there are legitimate reasons to not member. IMHO

From: Cluin
Date: 23 Jan 03 - 10:39 PM

Well, Strupag, I've not gotten any more spam since joining. Not gotten any less either...

But here's a suggestion. What I did was register for one of those free web-based email addresses, like at Yahoo or Hotmail or Bigfoot or whatever. The Web's full of them; a search will turn up tons. (mine is cluin@yahoo.com   I've been using the nickname Cluin since I came on line several years ago) Then you use that e-mail address on the web or on Usenet or in forums (even high quality ones like this) or whereever some on-line form asks for an e-mail address (including product registration, warrantees, etc.). Those bots that search out addresses on the web are relentless and getting cleverer every day.

Keep your regular at-home e-dress secret except for family and friends and business associates. Ask them not to give it out to anyone else you don't know either (I ask them to avoid using it for e-cards too. I'm not convinced they are all reliable).

Then you check your webmail address once in a while. The vast bulk of it will be junk you can delete sight-unseen. Your regular e-mail box won't get clogged up with spam and unwanted attachments that you will have to download first just to delete and get to the stuff you want to read.

I get almost no spam in my regular e-mail box. The only junk I've ever gotten has been that Nigerian Bank scam letter. I have no idea how they found my address...

One more hint... you know where those spam letters give an address you can reply to to "unsubscribe" from their mailing list. Well, DON'T! All that does is supply your e-mail address to the database that they sell to other spammers. Just grit your teeth and delete it.

If you're already flooded every day with spam, there's no recourse except to change your e-mail address and start over, following the directions above. The bastards have already tagged you and the shit will never leave you alone. Sorry, but them's the breaks. Live and learn. That's what I had to do (a couple of times).

There will always be Guests. Why worry about it? I'll say this, though, one can't PM a Guest, and sometimes that is pretty inconvenient. It also helps when Guests use a particular name, so you have some idea which "guest" you are talking to on what occasion. It has often amused me that any Guest under the sun could pretend he was any other Guest.... "GUEST,.Gargoyle" for example, and then post a thread apologizing for being such an @$$hole all the time, and then what would the real Gargoyle do about it? Post another thread denying the apology? Then the first Guest could deny the denial, and so on, and so on, and so on....

That is one very good reason for being a member, if you ask me.

When I found Mudcat, I posted as GUEST,JennyO for a couple of weeks, and then when I got a ROUND TUIT, I joined.

I like some of the extra features you have as a member, such as PM's and tracing threads, and I do think that it is good that when I say something, everyone will know it is me saying it. It hasn't made any difference to how much SPAM I get either.

I agree that while you are a guest, it would be better to give yourself a name after the GUEST tag, to save confusion, although I agree with Bobert that you do get to know some of the writing styles of certain guests after a while.

Anonymous flamers and trolls - well I try to avoid them!

I take offense at that, and consider it a cowardly act. If they are hiding behind the Guest mask in order to be rude, obnoxious, and derogatory that is just a cop-out and unfair to all of us on here.
the only legitimate reason i can see for logging on with other than your identifying "handle" is for secret santa purposes. Many, including moi,
do not use their real and or legal name here. I see no problem with that, but it is part of the fun here, inventing a persona that can

I think Max's attitude to Guest posting is essentially correct. I have asked him if it wouldn't be a good idea to make a Guest type something into the From box, as it would help us to get better a handle where there is more than one guest posting at the same time (the confusion can be due to maliciousness, but this is pretty rare).

He told me he'd consider it but didn't apparently feel it was worthwhile doing this, so I'm happy to go with his decision.

Historically, the GUEST label was created because some flamers had taken to signing their posting with other people's handles, something that can't be done if you're a member. To me, the only objection to GUEST postings is that one can't respond to a particular posting. If a guest wishes to sign in as, say, "GUEST,dick greenhaus", I have no problem at all (except that I'm dick greenhaus and I'm a member.)

Date: 24 Jan 03 - 12:41 PM

A troll is someone who "trolls for controversy using "flamebait".

It is a fishing analogy, if that is any help. One uses bait to troll to catch a fish. So a troll is someone who puts out a statement/post that they know will draw "flames" from people who the subject ignites passions in, or otherwise gets people worked up, that sort of thing.

As others have wisely pointed out, using other people's online "handle" or "label" or "name" (whether known, pseudonymous, or anonymous) isn't a reliable indicator of whether or not a person is a flamer sort of personality, a troll sort of personality, some combination of the two (which I would argue is the way most people are online), or neither.

However, just because someone loves to court controversy doesn't make them evil. Many people with such intense personalities are quite passionate in the ways they present their views, is all. Now, in "polite society" those types of people are rarely welcome. Hence, the negative reactions.

To me, the sin isn't in the courting controversy. It is in the subject matter (ie is it racist, etc or pointedly personal for no good reason--I believe there are good reasons for some posters to get pointedly personal with other posters on occassion), delivery style, that sort of thing. I find in life that we are all jerks some of the time. The people I tend to avoid are those who are jerks most of the time, which may or may not have to do with their flaming and trolling proclivities.

the guest controversy has been with us a long time. Joe Offer has laid it out pretty well above...I am one of the strongest objectors to totally anonymous posting, as I consider it rude and inconsiderate. (and I still would love to see a day when EVERYONE respsonding to a troll would post as 'guest', just to show how chaotic it would be.)

Dale Rose chooses not to be a 'member', but he usually signs his name, and I have no problem with that..slightly disappointed, but not offended. I have no problem with unusual names, web-based throw-away email...etc...I just want a consistant 'handle' so I can follow a complex discussion properly.

I am convinced that at least a couple of 'guests' also post as members at times, but resort to anonymity to criticize and complain. I also have a couple of guesses about who they are.

There is one 'ghost' who jumps into almost every thread about Mudcat fund raising to insinute that funds are being misused and that we are getting little value for our money, and I'll tell you...it would be very interesting if I were to meet THAT person face-to-face!

I try to make it a rule to not respond directly to trolls, but the urge is sometimes too strong...*sigh*.....

I am a guest because I was banished from Max's Kingdom.

In the days before membership and cookies we all just logged in, and I was gargoyle. (little "g" as homage to the style of the noble "dick greenhouse."

(Posting and design were less user friendly then, try the Library of Congress "WayBack Machine" at "archive.org" for a sample of the Mudcat's 1997/98/99 design.)

Max/Joe became more than a little miffed about my controversial style, and were concerned about complaints from a menagre of newly arrived, thin-skinned critters. Their patience came to an end near St. Patrick's Day in regard to a "Little Armalite" thread and the brewha it developed.

Their ingenious software solution to the situation was that the name gargoyle could not be entered into a thread title.

My hack around it was to use a a comma, period, umlaut, apostrophe, or tildee, to circumvent the block.

Hence, most official "gargoyle" postings generally have a period in front of the name. Many also continue to use the traditional html style.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Behind each posting's FROM - have the system add the reference address - people will become as quick to identify repeating numbers as they will name.

Make it "open code" "open source" - share it all - no need to keep it only on the log.

I posted once as a guest and have now become a member. I don't own a computer, though, so I am using a public computer and it might not allow me to keep a permanent cookie. If I have to reset the cookie each time, I think I will probably give up on that and be a guest whenever I submit anything. I imagine I will always use the same name, though. I don't know what people's (valid and sociable) reasons might be for sending completely anonymous postings but in cases other than troublemakers, I don't see any problem.

I think the issue is flames and trolls, not guests. Apart from anything else, membership does NOTHING to guarantee friendly and civil discussion unless Max were to start monitoring people's messages and reprimanding and ultimately removing people deemed flames or trolls. That would be a horrid path to go down. I don't think there is any reason we can't respond factually to slander and misrepresentation and ignore other inflammatory stuff (though it will always be one of those hurtful things in our day).

Strupag -

< (plus) a href=" (plus the URL for your link, plus) " (plus) > (plus the words you want to appear in your blue clicky, plus) < (plus)/a (plus) >

Copy and paste that into the text box. Then delete all of my parenthesis and everything inside the parenthesis. Add your information where I've indicated. Don't leave any spaces except between "a" and "href". I recommend using the preview function to check your links to make sure they work before posting. Good luck!

Where's the fun in that? It's like driving a car with automatic transmission.

CAROL ..... you failed to point out that there is a difference between posting a link to a Mudcat thread or song in the DT and posting a link to another web site.

Like Spaw, I would recommend the link maker to those who are not sure.

It may be like driving a car with automatic transmission but it won't let you crash.
