GUEST,Karen Thread Proliferation Control (281* d) RE: Thread Proliferation Control 01 Mar 03

This thread was 32 posts old before a single guest post appeared, and nearly 50 posts old before a second guest post appeared.

Yet certain members keep trying to sidetrack the subject of the thread, and make the identities of guest posters "the problem". By current count, this thread has 81 posts. This post of mine makes it the 15th post to this thread by a guest, whether anonymous or with a handle. 15 out of 81 posts isn't all that many, yet a couple of members are once again making guests, whose identities they just love to speculate about, the issue here.

So what exactly are the problems Mudcat management are attempting to correct here? Guests? Certain guests? Certin members? Certain members and guests certain members think might be so and so? Too many threads about Iraq and PEL? Cutting and pasting?

Or is the problem that Mudcat is under new management without our being told? Could it be that the new management is posing problems?That happens sometimes, when there are a lot of newcomers to a group, and the old timers feel the need to control the newcomers. So they do what new management often does, and shake things up with a makeover in their own image?
