Thanks for the link, I must say I am a little lost on how to navigate around in here.

I see this thin on the top that says "forum One"..not sure where the others are? or if there are any...

Ohhh..and I have another question. Since I am fairly new to these type of wide open, any one can flame your mother type boards..who are the "trolls" that I see people refering to? Are the trolls the doomers or the pollys?

And while I am at is kind of hard to judge where this board is coming from. Is it a prep site that just has alot of pollys posting comments? Or is it more of a community swimming pool where everyone and their dog comes to play?

Nice to have you onboard! If I remember right you are the "small" IT staff at a business eh?

If you are looking for anything in particular let me know or ask on the main board.

To start with you can check out the "About" page describing this forum and the others that are Y2K oriented on the Greenspun Board.

 About the TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Forum

This forum is pretty loose with its rules as long as someone isn't totally stupid and ignorant the posts will stay.

Defining a troll is pretty hard, it seems to be more of a personal thing. Mind you a proper definition is someone posting under anothers handle. IMHO. Others are trying to disrupt the forum with java, html tricks, foul language (excessive) and personal attacks although some of the forum members enjoy giving personal attacks for no great reason.

This forum is more of a public swimming pool and there is a Preparation forum started by forum regulars Big Dog (Russ) and Chuck. You will find the civil folk over there and OT is deleted no questions asked.
