The "issue" is that I haven't been in town for several weeks. who are the people contacting you?

Apparently Bruce hasn't kept up with your situation, then to say there's an issue.  Really?  Guess there just isn't enough drama around here, Bruce has to create some.

Not me. You?

Since there is a scamming/ spamming concern I will screen the applicants on my end who contact me asking for assistance in joining. At the least I can check and see if their email addresses are legit, etc. I didn't realize that there was more involved process to posting here. Over the past few years I have received a number of requests for assistance in joining the Forum, and have had to reach out directly to Shutter. Hence, the use of my term "issue."


The "issue" of spam would not be of concern to you. if they contacted you it's highly unlikely that they are spam. my reference to this is the fact of human spammers getting by the testing that only nets spambots. I get memberships with regular names, but once I check the email/IP's they end up from places like China, or Russia to mention a few, or they have domains attached with them that give clues to being spammers. they only want email addresses. that's the main goal of them joining. I can get 20 memberships in a week, and sometimes none of them are legit.

I thought the contact page was visible to guests, but it appears it is not. I will try to resolve this issue so people have a contact avenue to help the process of getting on board. I've also noticed I don't get emails about memberships, so I have some house cleaning to take care of.

I used Becki Green as a reference in a response to you. this was due to nasty comments made on a You Tube channel I have that is not connected to this forum. she told me it wasn't her and that she was at the library and didn't logoff. I responded back saying that it could be possible. a week later I see a notification and it was Becki Green once again attacking Robert Blevins this time, so it appears she was not being honest to me from the start. this would obviously be a person of concern with allowing her into the forum. a lot more goes on behind the scene that you are not aware of. I try to stop what you allow on your site with all the fake posters.

To date, the stats show 348 members. that's because it counts spammers. that's over 200 who tried to get in "illegally" 8) one of my concerns is safety to my members already here. do I get behind, I most certainly do, but it's due to real life issue's that over rule an internet forum, and for that I apologize and hope most can understand the lag in approvals.

She tried to leave a comment on my Youtube video that is posted on this forum. I have to approve all comments and needless to say, hers did not get posted.

Yes, that's her. she made a bunch of comments on my simulator when it first started..it's on my business channel. she gave that library story as a cover..then I seen her attacking other people and seen she joined here, well tried anyway.

It's a troll account..

Becki Green must of been on the DZ. the video's she posted on were unlisted, and were only shown on the DZ. it appears she has been trolling a lot of sites with insults, and personal attacks. if she didn't make any comments on my channel I would of never known who she was, and probably approved the account. it's rather interesting going through the accounts seeing what people try and pull...

What is her basis for interest in DB Cooper? Any experience or expertise in this matter?  ;)

not that I'm aware of. she blasted me about using an old computer for the Microsoft simulator I had. she was commenting on a video that was more than 3 years old with limited access to it. she did blast Blevins about Kenny though, I forget what she said....it was on one of Paul's video's also dating back...

when you see a You Tube channel with absolutely nothing on it tells you it's a troll account. no video's, no recent views, no favorites, few if any subscribers etc. etc..

Some of us still miss DOS!  :))  What a life!

She must have quite a lot to say ... perhaps she can post it on Smith's site? Maybe she knows how Cooper money got on Tina Bar?  ;)

She is of no value. she doesn't have anything positive to say about anything. I'm sure she wasn't nice with Vicki either...once a troll, always a troll.

I deleted the comment, but it was meant to be hurtful.

Since I do not "do" drama, I just deleted it and felt sorry for all the hurt in "her" heart. Hey Becki. If you are reading this. C U Next Tuesday! ;)

Hi everyone ! My first post and I thank Bruce for helping me get aboard. I've spent most of my life in the Portland area but spent 15 years in Las Vegas. I now live in Washington not all that far from where Cooper apparently made his jump. I'm retired and here to assist in any way I can.
