Man, that really sucks. I could have posted tons of mindless drivel, but respected the rule that doing that could get you reset zero or banned. Can't there be some kind of a review, say by a mod, or panel of mods, after someone hits 50 or 100, of that persons posts, contributions, and general character? Maybe get people to vouch for you? I know everybody is wary of the flood of new people in here, and I admit, some dreck was dragged in, but they will be dealt with in short fashion! I hate being lumped in because I didn't sign up til Feb 2006. I'm not a troll, nor a non-contributor to the general IC community, so why should I and others in my shoes be unfairly judged based on number of posts or date of registration? Just seems unfair. Don't misunderstand me, I am TOTALLY appreciative of this great place Gypsy has set up, where I can converse intelligently with other people who share a similar passion, with my peers. This place would be plenty WITHOUT chat, but hey, I can't say it doesn't intrigue me. :smile: Opinions? Gypsy? Dutchgrown? It seems like a reasonable idea...To me, anyways.
