Security and I hate dentists!
As the title says, this quick little post is going to be about the site, specifically security, and then some stuff about me over the past week.
First, about the security of the site. I have seen logins that are obviously fake coming in lately. When you have a dozen new accounts coming from a disposable email address, such as mailoracle, within a few minutes of each other, then it is obvious to me that these are people trying to setup fake accounts. Whenever I see these, they are deleted permanently. I know have a comprehensive list of these services and have banned new registrations from all of them. I do understand using these services at times. But registering for this site is not a good time to use them. I will say this loudly for the people in the back — We have not ever shared our member list with anyone and never will. Period. Full stop. We hate spam as much as the next person. We never spam. The only communications that we send are our newsletter that has an easy unsubscribe right in the email and if needed urgent communications.
But realize that if we see registrations that we think are fraudulent we will remove them immediately.
Now, on to what is happening to me… I had some dental work done on Monday, 11-02-20. I have never had any problems with dental work in the past. However, this time it jumped up and bit me in the ass. Tuesday, I looked like I was hiding half a softball in my left cheek. Thankfully, the swelling went down for the most part by Wednesday. The worst part though was the pain. I have not felt pain like that is years. But, I finally got on an antibiotic and there is still some pain, but not nearly what it was. Honestly, I have not had anything put me down that hard for years.
I did not even touch my computer for over a week, and this is the first time since that I have even felt up to getting any kind of work done with the site.
So please bear with me over the next couple of days while I get back up to speed. I did manage to catch up on some reading while I was down. So there will be some more blog posts coming from me shortly.
