    My last communications to Mr. Kearns went unanswered. Anybody want to try to contact Natalie? Unless deer season is still on in New York, somebody has to get this site cleaned up.

      I had to put 5 or 6 on "ignore" this morning. Guess it could be "worser"! LOL!

        I've added 35 in the last 2 weeks, many with more than 5 pages of posts. Some have posted enough to have 2 or 3 stars.

          Someone needs to be able to get a hold of someone who has power to change things, and allow that person to change the way people get added to this forum, where a moderator(s) who actually posts here, have to okay/give permission for that person to be added. Also make them answer a few questions to help weed out things.

            Ernie, I've joined a couple of "sites" that has "on forum moderators".
            Sadly, I'm the one who got censored for a very innocuous post. After sparring with the moderator, he (?) replaced my post.
            It's not that the site is a dud, but posts come few and far between....sometimes "days" between!

            If a moderator only removed vulgarities, it would be okay. But it's harsh to remove a post when you don't actually know exactly what that person was saying/asking.

            While I won't absolutely deny moderators, I think it takes a special mindset to be a moderator.

              Yes, it takes a certain temperament, to be a moderator. But the ridiculous amount of spam on this site is embarrassing

                  As I said earlier, Colin Kearns didn't reply to my last 2 messages, and he's at the top of the F&S masthead.

                    Guess I mis'splained Ernie.
                    A "moderator" should remove "spam" readily, but not be heavy handed when censoring posts.

                        I doubt the F&S and OL folks are actually running the websites, more than likely they can’t say what’s up either. I had the email address for a guy early in the last change over but he dropped out of the picture so fast I trashed it. Whoever is running this mess should be embarrassed, if not out of the web business altogether.

                        Maybe the new owners can put something decent together, supposedly they’re in the digital media business so it seems plausible. Doesn’t make sense they’d buy something just to shut it down.

                        If nothing else you guys should leave Natalie out of it, give the girl a break.

                          I think the new owner shut the forum down because of low participation and could not sell advertising for such low number of clicks.

                            Very likely, but some notice should have been in order.

                            Also possible the new entity hasn’t taken over yet, these things take time. Especially if they want things right.

                              It does not take too much time if it was losing money.

                                Well no, but if they haven’t finalized the deal yet then it wasn’t the new owner’s decision to make.
