It’s a ridiculous idea to prevent potential registrants viewing the board. You have to wonder at what passes for thought in some people’s head.
Most verily. Probably the same kind of "thought" (sic) as those architects and accountants employed when giving the go ahead for the construction of the Primark monstrosity in the HRH Duchess Bimbo Markle's Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames.

What's interesting is the intention was never to keep real people from accessing the site, I was just hoping that if the forums aren't visible to spambots we might get fewer registration attempts from them. Was just a bit of an experiment and at some point I was going to make everything visible again and hopefully have some spam solution so that we can turn on emails and registrations again.

Seems like there is real desire to keep the forums visible only to registered users.
Really?

vocal minority maybe.

It's all part of the master plan - we're his lab rats. He's now sealed off the tank so he can start watching the rats eat each other for his own entertainment. The signs are already there.

I walked past this primark this afternoon. I agree the outside of the building isn’t great but it looks like a very good shop inside. Huge and of course all at reasonable prices. I’d happily shop there but then unlike you I’m not a pretentious twat with my head rammed up my own arse.

Do you have any documentary evidence that your head is not, in fact, rammed up your ass?

Photos? Pissup reports? Was this why you weren't invited to leela's pissup?

Leela has never had a pissup in London. She's just attended other people's. While shunter has shunned them.
The Leela pissup was in NYC.

The only times (two, I think) when pissups have been privately arranged by PM, were when the posters visiting London asked for them to be so, and knew who they wanted to see. Not everyone wants to meet all comers.
One was definitely in YC days, the other several years ago. In both cases, the visitors liaised with me about locations etc.

Unfortunately, in YC/Stew lore, that has been translated into 'Leela deciding who can come to pissups and organising them secretly'. It's somewhat galling.

I hereby admit that the last couple times I was in London (which was 4-5 years ago) I arranged get togethers, by PM, with people I already knew and had met repeatedly, and didn't throw them open to the whole board.

My understanding is that shunter actually gets gilt-edged invitations in the post to every get together, but he refuses to go.

I met Shunter at a pissup in London in September 2006.
Among others, Ian in DC and bashtard were there.

Is it possible to have both one's head and someone else's cock rammed up one's arse as I believe this unique scenario may apply to the cunt from Kingston?

Clearly Cunter has failed to grasp the meaning of iggy. So let me explain in words that even a moronic accountant from shitty Kingston will understand: I blocked you shortly after you launched your vile, unprovoked attack on Islandboi.

So why don't you just fuck off forever, cunt face.

With the thousands of handles already registered it's pretty hard to make this site only visible to the current active posters.
And you wouldn't want to, I think. People seem to come and go from this place, and there seems to be much celebration when someone who has been absent for a few years pops up in a random thread. I've seen some suggestions to try to trim things based on when handles last posted, but it doesn't seem like a good idea to me.
Catching up late, but I agree, Lola. I think I was one of those suggesting a trim based on last login date, but I retract that suggestion.

There’s bias, there’s being dishonest and theten there’s what you are: committed to dishonesty. You are committed to promoting false realities. You are of the lie and as such you are an utter disgrace.
