Do not use this trick to disrupt the Hysterium - it is unfair... Wednesday, 28-Jul-1999 14:12:19 writes:

I have been wrongly accused recently of attempting to disrupt the Hysterium. Lately, someone (maybe more than one) has been posting using my name and email address - but I cannot make out whether the posts are meant to insult me or to further my cause of educating neutrals about the character of doomers - perhaps both, in which case I can live with the (attempted) insults.

In any case, were I trying to disrupt the forum, I would advise their opponents to utilise the following piece of code, which reroutes those pesky DELETE requests to your favorite thread.

Let's say, for the point of argument, that you wished to have a recent post from a@a.a receive all the DELETE requests your post is sure to generate. You could add the following code to the end of your message to redirect responses to that message:

You could aim this at any existing message for which you disagree by viewing the shortcut to that message and substituting the last part of it for the 'value' tag in the above.

But, do not do this, as this would be truly disruptive, and really beyond the pale in a civilised debate.

Thank you for the alert. Don't USE the code, just tell us about it.

Andy Ray and the De Bunkers are really a classless act, huh?

If anyone has problems to report please do... such as... which "specific" threads have an HTML intentional mess-up.


-- Diane J. Squire (sacredspaces@yahoo.com), July 29, 1999.

I attempted to post on this thread this morning. It never showed up. Yesterday, several of my attempts to post to Andy Ray's thread about aliens, showed up on the "gift for Andy Ray thread".

Will Continue,

Hopefully all the offending HTML code has been deleted now, plus a catalog of who is doing it identified.

If any more problems crop up, please post a thread to let us know.
