EFFECTIVE 14 Nov. 2012 PRIVATE MESSAGING HAS BEEN RE-ENABLED. IF YOU RECEIVE A SUSPICIOUS DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS AND PLEASE REPORT TO THE ADMINISTRATOR FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION.
This is the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's Message Board. Wright enthusiasts can post questions and comments, and other people visiting the site can respond.
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, *-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time they see fit.
By the way, for anyone who wanders out to Minnesota, there is actuallly a SPAM Museum near the plant in Austin, MN.
I'd say we should resume ignoring such posts -- readily identifiable by a very low post count and a red linked signature -- and let our watchman do his thing on our behalf -- with our ongoing and sincere thanks ?
If it's true that posters must wait for their second post before showing a (commercial) link, perhaps we could wait (except where the first post is an obvious fraud) for a second post before pulling the plug on someone ?
1) Yes, please ignore all suspicious threads. We are taking these down, banning users and forbidding their IP addresses. (Also, thanks for the thanks).
2) We check all suspicious posts very carefully to ensure that what we are taking down is SPAM and not genuine. The post I believe you are looking for was not erased and is still current. It can be found: http://savewright.org/wright_chat/viewtopic.php?t=5068.
FYI, some other users have reported problems finding archived threads. I cannot say if this contributed to the (current) post not displaying on your machine but we will continue to look into.
Thank you for all of your help in making this forum an even better place to come and participate in. Things have improved greatly already.
One option that folks here (myself included) have mentioned that would be very helpful would be the reinstitution of the 'private message' function. Do you know if that's in the works for a possible return?
