In light of the recent ridiculous attack of the spammers I have changed my mind. THere should be a way devised though for guests who have questions but don't want to be a part of the long term community to easily register. I think this is important to keep the page fresh.

I don't know what programming tools are available, but I think almost all of the current spams would not be here if there was some filter that automatically rejected the word CASINO.

I am new to chat rooms in general. This topic is interesting however. Has it ever been suggested that the members of a chat room agree and abide by a code that all aggressive and rude posts are completely ignored thus employing the psychological behavioral concept of "extinction." It works in all species form the lowly rat to the lowly human... Just a thought. Furthermore, I agree with the thought that new users of a chat room are more likely to initially participate if their participation is anonymous; worked for me. Finally, if this chat room is unique in this respect, it is an interesting experiment and should be given more debate. Mr. Wright might have appreciated such anonymity and the freedom of choice to further new thinking. Then again, his disdain for the "mobocracy" may have dictated otherwise.


I'm new also...surely the silly spam-like posts can be easily ignored. Or is this unusually prevalent at this site - to the point of being disruptive?

It's a major pain in the rear because it seems to happen so often. It comes in big waves. Huge time waster. It does appear though that the site admin is now being more aggressive with removing spam. Touchy subject though. preservation@savewright.org is where we all can alert the site to unwanted spam(was that oxymoronic.....?) as they have suggested. We all can help.

Unwanted bulk e-mail has gotten much worse in the past few weeks. How did they find this board? Is it because we've been using the "s" word?
