All I did was refresh the browser!

Sort it out, guys!

The main one that gets me is the posting so quickly after posting message.

This normally only happens when I have to edit a post due to a mistake, but there is that amount of time where someone may be getting the wrong information until I can correct it. Arrrrgggghhhhh :shock:

Yes, but even then, you sometimes miss something that you then notice in situ so to speak

Besides, editing is not always about correcting errors, but rephrasing or adding stuff - So, I'm with Lee on this one

And anyway, regardless of how many of the 'facilities' someone does, or does not, avail themself of, there is still no excuse

Sort it out, guys! :wink:

phpBB2 limits how many searches you can do and posts you can make in a certain amount of time to limit the impact of bots/spammers/etc. I've reduced the limits because we already have effective anti-bot measures in place but I'm not going to get rid of them :-)

The logic of that eludes me - If the anti-bot measures are effective then there is no need for the limits ... If there is a need for the limits, then the anti-bot measures, clearly, aren't effective and, in that case, need overhauling

I think this is an instance of the staff at LXF Towers putting in a standard day's effort ... (i.e. none at all) ... and that Mike should, therefore, be the first one we kidnap and the first one we shoot, to show we mean business :wink:

It's really quite simple. But I'll try to explain again just for you :-) There are anti spambot measures in place on this website. However, nothing is invincible. If a spambot does get through, there needs to be limits so that it can't wreak havoc.

I rate this attempt at trolling as 2/10 :-)

Hi Dutch_Master...

> LoL as the new 1sf (troll)?

Nah, he`d be upset not to have pole position as our
village idiot...

Mind you, I`m prepared to fight 1sf (troll) for the privilage... ;o]

"LoL" doesn`t even get close to being remotely humourous!

No, his spelling, and grammar are far too good.

Mind you, he can be almost as annoying.......
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!
