Okay, during 2004 elections, and under different user name, I mentioned a tactic that a possible terrorist cell might use to disrupt the elections. This apparently pushed the buttons of the powers that be and I was thereafter greeted with a "Loose Lips Sink Ships" admonition in my window every time I went to post a commen. This went on for about a year until I just decided to go ahead and give up my "seniority" and re-register with a new name in 2005. Well low and behold, the little red admonition followed me and has been attached to my new user name ever since. So here we are nearly 7 years later and it's still there. I emailed the admins with no reply so I figured I'd go ahead and post a vanity (I know how much they love that). So, my question is, how much is it going to cost me to get that little red reminder off of my posting page? Please let me know. Sincerely, Truthbeforeall.

That admonition is on everybody’s post page. Has been as long as I can remember. Since at least 2001.

That reminder is on every posting page. I think it started way back in 01 or 02 when we had some military folks in the field talking about what they were doing.

This isn’t about you.

You gave up your old user id for that? Yikes. I guess having only been here since 2006, it never occurred to me as anything other than a standard warning.

Great scene in "No Country For Old Men" --

"You can't stop what's comin'. It ain't all waitin' on you. That's vanity."

Why is it so hard for some folks just to answer a question without adding a self righteous comment to it?

“nevermind... :)”

********************

I don’t mind the “Loose Lips” message. But I sure wish they would get rid of the “$1 per post” paypal icon. That starts to add up after awhile.

No, I'm sorry.
Only newbies see that message.

And so you'll know, by definition, a newbie is anyone who signed up after Nov 24, 2000.
Sorry, but it's not like I make this stuff up.

Ask the OP of the vanity thinking this was personal thing against him to the point he started a new account and posted a vanity thread.. oh wait..

Okay, now, everyone, he has posted a “nevermind” (See Post #5).

So, let’s all leave him alone, now, to wallow in his shame and embarassment without further harassment from us.

I am sure he feels bad enough without a couple of dozen tin-foil hat photos being posted.

...on the other hand, I’ve been meaning to add to my collection of tin-foil hat photos for some time, now...

;-)

Yeah, I hate little red reminders on things... it's a pet peeve. I do wish I could remember my old username. I was trying to remember the other day when I joined FR initially. Maybe it was during Bush -v- Gore.

When we “step ‘n it” there is no going back for a do-over. One gets kidded, lambasted, made fun of, guilt tripped and lampooned until the thread runs out of steam.

One poster said that some airline high drama was unfolding just after 9/11 and since her husband was flying she wanted anyone who could to post an update to her as she WAS JUST GETTING INTO THE SHOWER. A decade later, she wears it as a badge of honor that others remember it so many years hence.

You might as grin and bear it because it isn’t going to stop just because you have now slapped your head.

How the hell would I know that is was or why it would be posted on everybody's page. That would have made no sense to me (not being a Navy man), so I made the mistake of assuming it was something I did wrong.The condescension is totally unnecessary, unless of course it makes you feel better about yourself, then by all means, go for it.

Well it would be worth considering to give you some special exception if you’d agree to, say, $1,000/month going to the FReepathon? Just be a monthly donor. Perhaps they’d think about taking down the little warning for ya.

If you become a Dollar-a-day donor, JR and the mods pass on super secret information to you through that space instead of that annoying little red message.
