    Please Consider this

    This may not be the right place to post this, but I am hoping all will understand and if we could get some help from the powers that be, it would be much appreciated..

    I think this is a great board with lots of information and for the most part, excellent posters. Rarely, do I see anyone who has not contributed in some way, either by disagreeing or agreeing, and therefore a whole new line of discussion happens, which is noteworthy.

    I just learned that because of a change in an e-mail address, any long-standing poster can be banned, because there is a list of "not wanted" addresses. Unfortunately, this is sometimes due to something beyond the poster's control and I would like to suggest that some latitude be given to those posters who have been here and have been posting without incident and also have given some valuable insight to the case. I would hate to lose someone just because his or her e-mail has been changed.

    Can't a list be made of those who are here already and respected and if such a change is made, that poster will be given the latitude he or she deserves.

    Thanks for your attention. Solace

    I know the poster that you are referring to...they did contact the administrator....but, I don't know if they heard anything back.

    Solace, I'm guessing here, but has this poster gone to a web-based (i.e. hotmail or yahoo) email address, or something?

    Hello All,

    I believe I am the person Solace and Ames are referring to. I've already contacted coloradokares, however, since my e-mail address is banned, I have no idea whether CK will receive it or not.

    Neither the old or new e-dress was hotmail or yahoo or other disguised e-mail address.

    Thanks to all for their concern.

    I'm confused. I don't have a hotmail or yahoo address, but why would it be a problem if anyone did? Is there a problem with those providers as far as compatibility with the board?
    THIS time, we get it RIGHT!

    I'm not exactly sure, but I think it has something to do with keeping people from posting under more than one hat, or signing up as someone else once banned... that type of thing.

    Oh I see. I am on the eBay boards, too and EVERYONE there has lots of IDs. Makes it crazy. And when they carry on confrontational conversations with themselves it REALLY makes me crazy.

    The reason why some e-mail addys are not allowed is because they are "anonymous". WS has a set of procedures in place which have been worked out with the help of our lawyers and technical advisors so that we can provide the highest level of protection for the forum and its members. We don't ask members to pay or to provide a list of personal information. All we require is that members use an e-mail account which is not "anonymous" so that in the unlikely event that we need to trace a troublemaker, we can do so.

    We cannot make different rules for different members and although it is fair to say that some members have proved themselves to be well-behaved over time, given the high number of our membership, it would be an administrative nightmare to assess each case on its own merit. (It's not unknown for a long-standing member to go "off the rails" too!)

    We hope that members will understand that this rule is for the good of the forum.
