A few questions about this-here forum
I'm curious, about how many people are regulars on this forum?  I'd say about 20??  Does that sound right?

How secure is our information on this forum?   

About how many moderators does it take to run AD?

Does it cost a lot to make all this work?  

I guess that's all the questions I have for today. Maybe I'll think of some more later.     Hmm

I don't know how many regulars.

What information? All there is is your email, and you can change that to dog knows what after you are registered. 

How many mods? That varies. Took more when everyone was on edge because trump than it takes now. It's good to have a mod present 24/7 so all the time zones are covered, but we don't really have that. 

Yes, it costs server fees.

A few questions about this-here forum
I did a very rough membership count of "regulars" —that is upwards of 1,000 posts
within the past 12 months 2020/21.  Total was around 40 members.

I have no issues with privacy on this forum.  I maintain very strict anti-malware/virus/
trojan/rootkit/phishing defensive software.  Never been compromised in 30 years.

And we should recall this:

Donation Information


—Did anyone click on my "rootkit" hot link without inspecting it?  If you did, then you
   could easily fall victim to what it's talking about.    Sad
I'm a creationist;   I believe that man created God.

The problem with this forum is, they'll let anyone join.

Case in point, look at this guy....∆∆∆

I'd say, the unmoderated window is pretty slim. And given that first posts have to be approved, it's pretty much noin existent.

Well, all you need to do is go down to the Face Store and buy yourself a face and you'll be right as rain.  I think I saw a sale on faces....50% off.  

Here, I picked this one out for you.....

The faces I've worn, you don't want to know
Enemy, rival, villan, and foe
Bringer of pain, anguish, misery, and woe
Where the darkness festers malevolence to grow.

Then there's a pair of us!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one's name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!

Didn't he used to be an illustrator for PLAYBOY?
