  1. Sorry for the disruption

    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.
    Details of how to speed up the DNS cache update on your computer are here: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-flush-your-dns-cache

    1. I think of all the people who post on here, Mr R shows no signs of any personality disorder - unless you think being honest and not afraid to speak your mind is a disorder. When we are being positive he can be very helpful - he will research topics and give his take in a way which shows he took it seriously and gave his time to help. When we are being negative, in the various ways that is possible, then he tells us. Nothing wrong with that - we can listen or not, it is our choice.

    2. As others have said, when asking something which can be misconstrued it is very important to indicate when something is a joke. The matter on which you wrote has legal consequences which those protective of this marvellous site would naturally want no part of. 99.9999999999999999% of us are in agreement with that. Sometimes I joke and do not make it clear enough, but I will do so more in future. But there are jokes ... and there are jokes.

    2. Is it not condescending to tell someone he needs another job? Mr R is a very successful expert in the field of electronic warfare - I think he "has another job".

    3. If any of us find we cannot cope with being on a Forum where people make a range of comments, then simply ban ourselves - just look and don't comment or just don't log on. From my perspective, I find this whole site to be incredible, the information within it extremely useful and I value it.

    That one wasn't condescending. I was simply telling you, with your question about finding illegal immigration stamps, to p*ss off. If you want to make a joke in writing about inappropriate/illegal things make sure it can be easily identified as such.

    I'm not fan of yours either but you aren't going to get banned for talking smack to me. Not by me anyways.

    I think it was easier in the past to gain negative ratings - until they were given only for abhorrent or trollin'. Correct? Anyway 'IceColdAlice' (or similar name) told off Mr R for cussin' and he's been a good boy (mostly) since then.

    As Bob Dylan wrote in 'To Ramona': "...there's no one to beat you, no one to defeat you 'cept the thoughts of yourself feeling bad"

    Participating in forums, especially with a group of regulars you have never met requires thick skin. You might have wrote the message as a joke, but it lost that as it made it's way to the forum. I use emoji's a lot in an attempt to make something clear that it's a joke. Even then, it may still be borderline or moderated. Notice that I have 3 red points and @Rye83 has 10 of his own. We don't always have happy agreements with everyone.
