email validation?

It occurs to me that the problem with TR and trolls could be wiped out if the submitted e-mail address was validated before access to posting is allowed.

I had a little investigation and noticed that you can create an account and start posting without any ?validation?. Now with 99% of other forums making you submit a valid e-mail address and then confirming by mail / link - should TR not do the same??

The current system seems lazy.

But I doubt that the PTB would go for it. Mostly because accessibility is key for them.

There are just so many ways to spoof an alias. Fortunately, I should think that the Spud is running out of ways to play with mine. None too bright, that one. But it IS a bother- especially when you can't always see the alteration straight away.

Don't know what the answer is but am willing to do whatever it takes. I especially appreciate all of those who go out of their way to let me know that I'm being duplicated again.

Good Idea!

by Tig2 In reply to Just hang in there

I have been hesitant to say anything because of the recent outbreak in "duplicates". I read some of the stuff that Spud had to say and was rather appalled by it. Thankfully, much of it has been pulled.

A Minnesota Meet would be fun. We might even be able to attract some of the Michigan contingent- even Ohio. Unfortunately, if the recent weather reports are close to correct, it sounds like the snow will start falling any day now. Winter is NOT my favourite time of year!

Could be interesting to try to time something for the same time as the Brits are meeting. GG said something about trying to establish some connectivity with the US. Hmmm. I shall begin plotting now...

There are a bunch of us

Grolan and Frylock are both in the Twin Cities as is Dayna.Thomas (I actually KNOW her- used to work with her) and more.

I would make a bet that we could find may more. I have just been reluctant to open a thread as the last one that was opened on this subject was by Spuddy in one or another uses of my ID. I thought I should likely give that a few days to die down.

There are a bunch of Midwesterners around here- and IL and KS are both within a reasonable driving distance. We may have an idea brewing here... :)
