I access all others, but that one, I attempt to post and everything freezes! it's been 20 mns now. Each time I get the skeptic is no responding crap when it's not true. As like said he other threads are perfectly accessible.

Now that really smells very bad.

Perhaps it's too many youtube videos needing to load that causes trouble with your browser?

We spoke about this before. Does this still hold true?

There's an American expression "something smells fishy", meaning, "I suspect something unethical/immoral is happening."

I can't lock individual people out of individual topics. Wish I could. Used to have that option in phpBB2 but this is phpBB3 and I don't have that sooper speshul power anymore.

Anyway...can I get a link to the problem topic? There might be something else going on that I need to check.

Yeah, too many videos that the browser has to load at the same time. Reduce it to one per post or one ever other post and that should help, or as I've said there, just post the link and don't use the tags to embed the video.

Now that the issue has been resolved, don't you think you owe Austin an apology? He was called a dork by you because he correctly suggested it was your computer and not some vast conspiracy against you.

Interrogation worthy of the C.I.A, Aztexan.
And as pointless.

Although I do like the quaint phrasing…"Don't you think….?"
It's so sweet, so hopeful…..

I got a long weekend coming up. I think I'll install the option to totally ignore ignored users, although that "totally" won't hide their name if they made the latest post on a forum. It does hide the link that lets you view the post of an ignored user.

If we were I'd drop by more often.
