Subject: BS: What will happen to Chongo, IF........!
From: Little Hawk
Date: 28 Jul 06 - 05:38 PM

If various upset people here have their way and ban "Guest" posters from the BS section...or even from the whole forum....then WHAT will happen to Chongo Chimp???? And Blind DRunk in Blind River (Shane McBride)???? And various other such worthy Guest characters?

Would it be democratic and just to ban Mudcat's only chimp and Mudcat's most notorious drunken hoser from these hallowed halls merely because they are Guests????

Never! It must not be allowed to occur! People must mobilize now to ensure that primates and total idiots can have their say here too, as long as they have a name to post under.

I wish to point out that Chongo and Shane do NOT post anonymously, like some of the creeps that show up here. No, they have the guts to post under their own names and stand behind what they say and take the heat.

They must not be forced out by a misguided attempt to cleanse the forum of a few antisocial malcontents and disgruntled members who hide their bile behind anonymity.

We need to form a grassroots movement NOW to protect Chongo, Shane, and other decent Guest posters from a fascist pogrom by a few picky people!

To the barricades, I say! I know not what others may choose, but as for me, give me Chongo and Shane...or give me death!!!!

Forget it, Clint, baby. Little Hawk pays about as much attention to anything you say as I do. As you can probably guess, that's not too friggin' much. Go check out the Three Stooges thread. It's about your speed.

I ain't goin' without a fight, folks!

Simple answer... Memberships all the way around. No it doesn't mean LH would have to log out and log back in all the time. Use different browsers. Log in as LH on Firefox and use Opera for the fictitious folks.

The more important issue, to me, is that folks using library or workplace computers that don't allow setting cookies would be kept out.

There's got to be a better way. As was noted above, there are times, for whatever reason, when a Mudcat member wishes to remain anonymous. I would hate to think the Cat could no longer be here for them.

Accountability has to be the linchpin- 'Anonymous' members have their ISPs on file, and a history. So do Chongo and Shane.

Just ignore anon guests posts ..... quite simple actually. If they are completely out of line in terms of deragatory remarks, personnal attacks etc., then quite rightfully so, their posts/threads should be deleted.

well, the answer is easy, but I don't know if the programming to implement the easy answer is also easy.

You have members with cookies who sometimes log out...like to discuss Secret Santa doings, or jokingly assume the identity of P. Endicott Cruthwaite for a moment, and thus their cookie is not read. BUT! Their IP remains the same unless they go thru some arcane process to mask or change it. 'Upper Management'..Joe, Jeff, Max...have access to those IP numbers.
....Now, *IF* there were a way to compare the IP of P. Endicott to the known list of gen-you-wine members' IPs, and allow P. Endicott to post 'semi'-anonymously (identifiable if necessary), we could still have 'most' of the benefits of member-only posting in the BS section, without making it impossible for Chongo to pass out his immortal words for our edification!!!!
This could also make it VERY difficult for petulant members to use anonymity to harass others.


You see? Now, there's the idea....I'd bet it is possible, I just don't know how tricky it would be.

As one of the simply millions and millions of people whose lives "suck" compared to yours, Clinton, I just want to say that we are all planning to come to Windsor soon, grovel before you, beg for autographs, and kiss your feet in abject adoration.

God, it must be wonderful to be you!

gee, Clinton...I used the "secret Santa" example that YOU started to show why it can be useful to log out for useful and peaceful purposes.
Why you gotta find a way to be sarcastic about nearly everything?

Anyway...since I am assured by knowlegable you, that it IS possible, maybe we cn have a discussion.


(it dawns on me that posting anything of relevance on a Friday night means that few will read it until Monday)

I'd like to hope you have better things to do......

"I used the "secret Santa" example"
I think all that is a load of unnecessary hogswallop.... That others enjoy it, bully for them.... But if there was a rule change here at Mudcat and such was no longer an option, -I- wouldn't miss it in the least....

"Why you gotta find a way to be sarcastic"
I'm not being sarcastic in the least.... I'm expressing an opinion, in a blunt, straightforward manner.... Try not to lose any hair over it.... I don't lose any over your opinions.....

Really, this would all just be solved if Max would add verifications to the input fields so that guests HAVE to put a name into the form field in order to post. (It would show up as "Guest, _______") Technology can do that, hello. They don't have to be members and login. Look at any other forum software and you'll see that most of the time when they allow guest posting, it still forces the guests to use a name and that name is displayed along with the post.

LH, if you have multiple personalities, I suggest you make yahoo email addresses for each one, and register them individually as members, each with their own id & password.

Then again, you could always pay me a visit for a little reprogramming..
