    I was blocked from this site for a little while earlier today. When I went to this site a page would come up informing me I was blocked and referred me to stopforumspam.com. I went to said site and they wanted my info (which I didn't give them). Elected to wait a while and see if it would fix itself. Everything's back to normal now but I'm a little concerned. Is this happening to anyone else? Is stopforumspam a legitimate site or is someone scamming me?

    Not been stopped, yet. But the site does seem
    unstable for the last several days.

      I think it was a scam. they probably blocked you somehow in an effort to get your info.

        The site has been pretty erratic since I returned on July fourth.

          It happened to me earlier this week. All it really wanted was my email (as well as I remember) which I have publicly posed online anyway, so I just followed the instructions and got back on after a bit. But then I was concerned when I got on and nobody else was complaining about it on here!

              Strange things have been happening. You would think the regulars would be exempt from the spam filter.

                Whenever I post a comment or an answer I am asked to sign in, usually three times. I dutifully comply, then the posts hit three times. Embarrassing and aggravating.

                  This site is so up-farkeled that even a team of geeks with a super duper whooper mega biter could not straighten it out. Happy gets blocked, sometimes I cannot login after numerous tries, and give up in disgust, Beekeeper gave it up in disgust for a while, and I read some long, convoluted piece yesterday about a way to log in. Is Bill Heavy now in charge of the Blogs/Answers sections?

                    I have had problems signing on at times - it is rare that I can log on by clicking the log on option at the top of the page (I can read the material w/o logging on but can not comment). I usually have to find a comment below the article that I agree with and click yes for good comment. The program then asks me to log on and, after I enter my log on data, I am logged in and the good comment logs a yes.
                    Today I have been noticing that the program seems to be continually "waiting for http..." Not sure what is going on but it does seem that there are some serious problems that need work...I would hate to see this site crash!

                      I have had a problem with the site for the last couple of days in trying to upload a pic to the Shoot this Can Contest. I was finally able to do it but it was slow as three Christmases in doing it.

                        With all the website hurdles we must jump over, it is still the best outdoor site around.

                          I'm forced to log in repeatedly also and also have to go through the spam process too! But its worth it, you guys are very knowledgeable and I learn something every time I'm here.

                            There are lots of things making this a hard race to predict. Pollsters do their thing and mostly they show Biden up over where Clinton was at this time...
