      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      UPDATE on Upgrade   02/07/2017

      We were somewhat delayed on getting the upgrade done, but it looks like it will now be done in the next few days or possibly even later today.   There is one change coming with the new upgrade that may affect people when they log in. There will no longer be separate Usernames and Display Names. Your Display Name will now be the only name you have for the forum and, if you used your Username to log in, you will now need to use your Display Name. It is likely that everyone who visits after the upgrade will need to log in again, so please keep this in mind.   Update again - Feb 7 - We have completed the main part of the upgrade and we are working to tweak settings for the site.  It will probably take us a while, but we will eventually settle down to the way we want it.  In the meanwhile, your posts should be secure, but the look of the forum and some functions may change over time.

      Notifications blocked by Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live, etc   02/14/2017

      Our notifications are blocked by those mail servers. If you have email address at Hotmail, Hotmail.uk, etc etc then you will not get notifications and need to manually check for new replies. We recommend Gmail.   The notifications won't even be in your Spam folder - they just go down a black hole.

I keep getting an email

2 posts in this topic

.... DO NOT FOLLOW UNFAMILIAR LINKS, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200

Yes, I hate monopoly, btw. ;)

 

One particular email from many diffrent addresses keeps appearing

 

It always contains the following:

Title:Mail Delivery (failure [My Email address, but if you get it obviously it will be yours])

 

The message reads:

If the message will not displayed automatically,

follow the link to read the delivered message.

 

Received message is available at:

<My Isp, but if you get it, it will be yours>

 

It obviously leads to something malicous, probaly a virus. Whatever it does, it's starting to piss me off!

 

 

:grrr::grrr::grrr::bangbang::bangbang::bangbang:

 

Using Thunderbird's Junk mail features, I have managed to remove them out of my inbox, but I'm still pretty annoyed that these messages are taking up space, at least until I retrieve them from my mail server. Plus my junk mail folder is pretty big now, and it's filled exclusively with them.

 

Final note:

NEVER OPEN UNEXPECTED ATTACHMENTS

Dear Archon Wing,

 

calm down please....

 

Your advice is of course absolutely sound. I really understand your anger. I used to receive the same spam from different e-mail addresses at work (!!) with offers for some horrible frauds. I called IT department and asked that they block such addresses, but they are not almighty either...

 

I never open any suspicious attachments from unknown addresses. :bounce:
