    Riots in the USA - just an excuse to let off energy?

    #CopsLivesMatter Why should the cop that was recently shot dead - so a rioter could steal a TV - be basically ignored by the mainstream media (apart from Fox News)? Is the standard that if you are an off duty cop, your life doesn't matter? These sorts of quotes are disgraceful attempts to...

    Prevent spammers posting links in initial message

    Yes, confirmation email. But the bots auto do that nowadays anyway. I have antispam plugins too that I bought, but there is a constant battle against the bots, who find aways around these things. For your interest, these are the last log entries: You can see from the ID on the left, we have...

    Looking into it but doesn't seem so easy to stop that. No simple options in the backend, like there is for the links.

    Were the lunar landings a hoax?

    There are more than a few grumblings out there that indeed it was a hoax, perhaps for political gain and to placate the electorate. Of course, Neil Armstrong enjoys his fame and place in history, but is that evidence of motive to lie? What do you think? Hollywood production or did they really go...

    Big hit by Google's recent algo update

    I am not sure about other forums, except to say that at the Xenforo site, many have lost significant rankings. It all started on May 5th. A guy with an Excel forum lost rank, and another guy in a tech area. Maybe the Excel guy was MrExcel? Who knows.I haven't looked on vbulletin sites or the...

    Big hit by Google's recent algo update

    Most likely not. https://searchengineland.com/google-may-2020-core-update-rolling-out-today-334128 Reports are out there that this is the biggest algo change since I think it said April 2018.

    Big hit by Google's recent algo update

    Google had a big change to their algorithm in early May, and sadly, it looks like we've been hit. They obviously don't like us online communities anymore. Early signs are that we have lost 30% of traffic, which is a major blow for us. But there is nothing we can do about it except plod on...

    Do you use Dark mode or Light mode?

    I am curious as to what percentage of people are using Dark Mode vs Light mode. Or perhaps you use both. Also, do you think we need another style option to add to the above?

    Coronavirus - Time to Reflect on the Initial Reactions

    I have a different view on that. The hysteria is perhaps less correlated with reality than other factors, such as media reporting, and not understanding the data. Take deaths. People seem surprised when there is a lockdown and then deaths are not falling. There is always a lag. I had a quick...
