Lightbulb Old BrainTalk HastyPastry

The loss of all the accumulated knowledge on BrainTalk, such as Rose's sticky on B12 deficiency, makes me so sad. I hope people who have posting access to http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/...prune=-1&f=219 let the people there know periodically that this forum is available, and is more active than BrainTalk. Together, we will build a new and even more vibrant and valuable resourse for people with neurological and related conditions.

I'd love to see us come together again as a community, this time under the aegis of the good Dr. John.

Unhappy I am not having problems...

this morning. Sometimes they go down briefly I have noticed, however.

I do want to warn people here, that I found by accident yesterday, that
spammers are quoting forums now on their websites in violation of
the Creative Commons license for the internet. If you see my screen-name
anywhere, be advised it is stolen. I do not endorse ANYTHING on the net.
I will not put the addresses here, but if you are interested, please email me.

They may have been taken thru BoardTracker...but I am not sure.
I have notified Mike Weins at BT to see what he thinks.

Default The only way I can get into braintalk

I have to click on a post and hit reply, and then log in. The log-in does not take, but if I then go up top and choose Braintalk forums and go to another thread and hit reply to apost, it lets me, and from then on I have no problem replying to any post, until I leave the site and come back and have to go through the same thing again.

Tiresome, but it works for me.

MsD ... Last night I went looking for what you were talking about, hoping I could help you with this... I have some tips to make your letters look "heavier" than they are...

Anyway, all I could find was www.SellAffiliates.com .... and all they are is copies of all the forum threads and posts that have been offline since summertime. He has Google ads on the forum (like OBT does), but this particular site is not (currently) in violation of the Creative Commons license.

Making money off Google ads is hard - it takes tons of traffic. Google makes most their ad money off the targeted ads and the special "toppers" on their own search pages. And, as we know, Google has computers that decide on page content as to what ads to display on a given page - a website owner who contracts with Google can tell them to screen certain types of ads.

While searching this highly simplified site is more difficult, at least all that old material is online -- you just have to know what dozen or so target words to pull up the right pages.

At least no one words is being used to promote or endose any products -- IF that is the site you were speaking of. I had thought that Pharmacy or Health Food sites were using your words/posts to promote specific products.

As for the OWNER of that site, he (or it could be a company) lives in the Orient, uses a Toronto, CA business to mask his identity, and they did the actual purchase of the domain name for him. The chances of reaching him or influencing him is nil - even with threats of legal action. It would seemingly take a court order (obtained by a Canadian lawyer in a Canadian court) to make the company divulge the principal's identity -- if it is anything like the same procedure in this country.

Any weight or impact on this issue would have to come from someone on the board over there. The only reasonable route is to write the owner of the current hosting service. Of course, he could immediately move the website to another service IF they cared enough to take the website down. It wouldn't be worth the money to pay an attorney in this case. It would be an endless paper chase.

Unless he/the company were to take the expense to enter everything into a searchable database, the site's potential to draw traffic is minimal. Virtually nil after the archives are restored. At this point in time, it would be prohibitively expensive to try legal threats and a case would have a good chance of being dismissed.

But if it is some other website, using your words to promote a product line or some ingredient or some business, it will be reasonably easy to have it stopped.

Default Anyone else?

Getting the overload of spam I have suddenly started getting? I mean, it is a MAJOR amount. I have never had trouble like this before. I believe it started not quite a week ago.

Hi Cathie, They usually get your email address from a public website you may have visited prior to all the spam, there are people out there making a living on selling our email address, I would ask your Internet providor if they offer a spam filter, this site might interest you with some good tips.
