Any further updates on fixing the site ? It’s annoying seeing all the gobbledegook
when I try to post something .

Very sorry folks left in the lurch but I'm on it.

Thanks GT. Something else that concerns me is updating the site with the newest software because we would all have to agree to the new EU internet terms and conditions and I'm personally opposed to this tracking method which is exactly what it is. Everything has been building up to this, take note of every site over the last year asking you accept cookies. These simple text files were harmless to allow you quicker access to a website you frequently visit, but now they have different lines of text to track you for marketeers that follow all your surfing habits.

"This site uses cookies from Google to deliver its services and to analyse traffic. Your IP address and user agent are shared with Google, together with performance and security metrics, to ensure quality of service, generate usage statistics and to detect and address abuse.

"By playing this video you agree to Twitter's use of cookies. This use may include analytics, personalization, and ads."

Just look up the phrases in bold type. It simply means that whatever we do now is tracked and recorded, even when you delete history, even the cookies, it's too late because it's all stored on the servers.


Anyway I'm just saying I'll keep it the way it is.

Strum,
Yes, there is significant responsibility placed upon the administrators of web-blogs and the relevant data held by their servers, relating to their subscribers/contributors. Opinion based sites, akin to all content providers must now have increased and appropriate online security. This means a consequent unavoidable cost to have such content displayed, with all contributors personal details sufficiently protected.

Is this what you mean GT?

"The GDPR and the law enforcement Directive provide for significant reforms to current data protection rules. They provide for higher standards of data protection for individuals and impose increased obligations on organisations that process personal data. They also increase the range of possible sanctions for infringements of these rules."


I'm not doing anything wrong by not updating the software, just like I don't accept cookies anywhere, it's not mandatory is it, so why not keep the site as is, when it's repaired, and let it continue as is, a small community chatting, no harm in that, point being that I'm protecting your privacy here so why give access to your emails, private messages and all your past posts etc?

And the biggest joke of all? "We value your privacy" :lol:
