Fight Spam

I’ve been out of town for a few days. I had to go help out family out of state. No emergency, just adding muscle and sweat to a home improvement project.

Anyway, I get back and I have a couple of emails concerning spam. We may have had a spam situation, wherein one very new member sent out at least one suspiciously spammish email to another member. If everybody got such an email ( I didn’t ) then BMEWS has been spam-hacked. I don’t think that is the case though.


SPAM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED HERE, AND SPAMMERS WILL BE DEALT WITH TERMINALLY. TERMINALLY!



Ok, here’s how the blog engine works. BMEWS members are allowed to send each other emails and messages. You can click on a user’s name in the comments and this blog will do the work for you. That way one user can contact another, and I’m pretty sure it protects your email address. (I’ve never tried it, but as Super Duper Admin I can do anything, so to test it I’d have to create 2 regular membership accounts, log on as one of them, and send an email one to the other via BMEWS. Hassle for me, much?) I have everyone’s email address, and I never send out spam. I sometimes reply directly to a member when they have made an especially good comment, or when they email me directly. [ I am still a couple weeks behind on my direct emails. Sorry.  ] Contact from me, the blog owner, or from Peiper, Mr. Christian, or one of our small cadre of highly trained and trusted cohorts, is not spam.

HOWEVER, some folks may feel that out-of-the-blue contact is spam. That is their right and I respect it. If you would prefer not to be contacted by other members, you can uncheck these 2 boxes in your membership profile:

uncheck “Accept email from other members of this site”, and then
uncheck “Notify me via email when someone sends me a private message”

and that should do it. I haven’t tested that either, but it seems right.

Should you make such changes, and then want to contact some other BMEWS member, you’ll probably have to go through me as an intermediary. And I’ll do for you a couple of times, but that’s about it. Don’t be uncheckin if you wants to be emailin.

I know that once or twice in the past we’ve had a small bit of annoyance when one member contacts another “out of school” ... typical flame wars kind of stuff. That isn’t what I’m talking about here today. You know spam when you see it.

So ... if you feel you have received spam from someone here in the past 3 or 4 days, write me an email and say whodunnit. If I get the same name twice - 2 spams sent - that’s a guilty verdict and the axe falls. Actually, Peiper will be manning the guillotine this time, as he has needs the practice. No worries, we keep the blade sharp. Well, mostly sharp.

Off with their Spam!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
