Coonie, you are just as entitled to your opinion as any member here in the forum. I understand your position, I just see things differently, lets agree to disagree on this issue. Not everyone agrees here on any one thing, we all have our own views and that's OK.

Well there's no opinion when it comes to the workload on the mods if every post is to be approved. I mean my god that's insane. We all hate spam but we can't let it get under our skin either. Not good for your health. Like right now I'm somehow getting notifications on my phone for advertisements creditkarma. I scanned for malware and nothing turns up. It's frustrating as hell especially when I have no idea how to stop it but I try to just ignore it too so I know where you're coming from.

Since the forum upgrade a year ago (a so) its getting worse and worse. Ads everywhere and spam too.

What about an extra area for new members, they have to post X post in Y days first, before being able to post somewhere else?

MYB the 'system' that stops new threads (by new members especially) in BS&T could do that for new members wanting to make any new thread except 'Intros' in Newcomers section??
Some other forums make doing an intro NOT an option. and some insist on a general location. ..just sayin'

Something changed, I can no longer highlight and delete entries into the entry block for new posts, it really sucks.

yes... I also noticed this too.
Not usable anymore.

Some of the advertising on here is so invasive it pops up in the middle when you are trying to write a response. Some advertising on here has also triggered a security response with my Kaspersky Internet security which I am forced to use for work -
These ads are tracking content in the posts. This tracking isn't something that has been consented to by me and is completely disruptive. I strongly dislike having my searches pop up in different areas clouding my view while I am in the middle of typing.
As the page owner you must disclose that you are running tracking ads on your site. You have so far neglected to do so.

Why the use of this kind of format when other forums operate on WordPress and are cheaper to operate? I don't see much in the way of improvements rather a slow degradation in usability.

I was able to highlight, finally, thing is, it is difficult to see if it was highlighted and only allowed me to do so during a second edit, and sometimes the server is slow to echo what you have done such as highlighting. Also, when typing HTML, such as for colors, and you post and decide you need to use a better color, i.e., yellow instead of blue due to visability, that html text I had entered earlier is no longer available to simply edit in a different color, I had to highlight each line individually and reselect the color each time.

When I do a control A to copy all of the text from an entry block, I cannot see it has captured it, in that case I don't think it does.
