Computer folks do love to "fix what ain't broke", don't they?

You have NO IDEA what was or was not broke on this site. No let me rephrase that. You have NO F)^#@^* idea what WAS broken on this site. It NEEDED an update. Believe me I am not a great fan of change but sometimes it is NEEDED whether we like it or not. I am constantly fighting changes on other sites or after doing updates on my phone. Yes it is a PITA but life goes on.

You're right CK, since I'm just a lowly consumer of this site and not privy to the behind-the-scenes issues and the state of the mess, I indeed had no effing idea. Moleculo has explained it and I thank you and him for keeping us safely up and running.

Maybe some decaf all around?

Nahhh......I need the caffine. LOL Remember all those reports of porn links in people's PM's? That was only a part of why we needed to upgrade. They were all from Russian hackers. We could see the IP addresses of them and did our best to ban those IP's as they cropped up but there were days we would have literally HUNDREDS of bots on this site.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
