Why don't you start your own LEAF forum, then? It would make it even easier to ignore you.

So is the forum devolving into a place for rants and raving now? Oh right, it's not the first time, but that's one obnoxious thread title!

Alrighty, then, let the "entertainment" begin! :lol: I'm always amazed at stuff some people (or trolls) start a thread about. I just sit back and watch others bite the bait, thinking "haven't they seen this guy before??" and "why do they bother?" Some very intelligent people are putting real thought into their answers when they graciously and generously engage to try to help fractious posters.

For the record, coolfilmaker, not everyone pays to participate (I don't, yet), but I very much appreciate the forum and most of its members. Hey, why not rephrase that thread title as something problem-specific or address your troubles directly with moderators? Just a thought... 8-)

Anyway, I mean this post in the NICEST way and I truly thank the hilarious contributors (who, like me, are "also offline" when the forum is down :D ) and those that recognize folks have freedom of speech (but who spontaneously blast complaints before thinking to post courteously :roll: ).

Entertainment box, checked! Keep those funny posts coming. :)

When I said forum I meant forum, referring to the place we come to discuss topics. The people on this forum are some of the best.

Oh wait! Is he saying I'm an "old fart" because I sleep in the wee hours of the night and have never noticed the forum going down for backups? Yeah, that must be it... :D

I feel offended FWIW, this forum has become an old friend because "MOST" of the posters are quality people. This post portends to be critical of the software used but the poster could have offered his(her) suggestions without pissing people off.
So, my answer is: 1. I've had no SPAM, ever, from this forum; 2. I am in bed asleep when the backup occurs. A shadow backup would be better but if I "KNOW" when the forum is offline I will simply plan for that. Certainly not a cause for a slam like this one!

Coolfilmaker, how would you back up and retain the collective knowledge from this forum? Or would that all be lost in your pursuit of no midnight shutdowns?

Not sure what you're saying Tony. If you think I'm suggesting we switch forum software and lose all of the previous posts that's not the case. There are conversion services that would convert the database with all of the posts for a few hundred dollars.

With you proposed new site, what would you do with all the data here?

The new site would just be a temporary beta version that would be open for a few days before going live to check for any problems. All data would be maintained.

Does that mean that Google searches would actually work?
