I'm an analyst by trade, len. I look at facts, figures, and situations, and then draw conclusions based upon the evidence. I've been consistent here. You've been all over the map.
First it was "it's being handled in a timely manner", then it was "Freeloaders quit complaining", then it was "Whine Whine Whine", then it was leaping to the defense of the admins when they specifically said they didn't want anyone speaking for them, and now it's "about the forum".
What's the common link between the aforementioned tactics?
Your mention of your background is smoke screen at best.
(btw, i've been doing human/computer system analysis and design for decades,.)
The rest of this is just you trying to frame the issue to support your behavior.
You're behavior in this thread, and elsewhere on this forum,
about the spam issue is rude, excessive, and extermely self-centered.
Of course, you don't want to hear that.
Of course, you want to continue to act poorly.
You have the freedom here to do that,
as long as you remain within the box rules.
I have the freedom to point out to you that it's wrong.
Of course, you could change your behavior.
