Oh and the answer is no. The site will remain intact and closed for new posts, until an operating system won't support the PHP level needed. It's cheap to do that

Maybe because it brings us together. I'm sorry that isn't in focus right now, and I'm sorry that it seems like we're at each other's throats. I have not contributed content like I'm capable of that might weigh on the positive side of the joy scale much lately.

We've taken this place for granted and forgotten to be kind to each other. To not judge.

That puts you in an awkward situation... dwellars, you can't live with them and you can't shoot them... at least not without having to ban yourself.

So what?
82 and invited means they are allowed unrestricted ability to spread rumors, lies, and misinformation risking peoples lives?
OK whippersnappers, drink the Clorox and make Undertoad proud.

Even I can think of other less dramatic, equally effective controls already built in. Like the ignore function. Hey, I'll do it now.

If you notice a given dwellar consistently posting things you don't like, there's a function of this board called "Ignore". Choosing to add a given username to your "Ignore" list will simply and effectively block that users' posts from your view. It's like putting them on mute. And it's reversible so you can switch back (and forth) at any time. The other user doesn't feel a thing, just ask the people on my Ignore list. You'll have to repeat their answers to me since I won't see what they say here.

**********

There. That's done. I hope this reaches the affected parties before anybody hits the big red button.
Oh how I love a post with rational solutions.

Thanks and I know about the Ignore button and I can read what I want to and Ignore too..and why can I not be able to defend myself somewhat not that it should be necessary....... If I were a young person and not have decades of skin I could be devastated....

Apparently she has a long established history of talking health-ish babble and disregarding community standards. She sounds like a Karen (apologies to mrs glatt).

Actually, I suspect in all honesty that she has a mild cognitive deficit. Might be illuminating to ask yourself why she and Dude111 know each other...
