Happy new year, everyone.

As many of you will no doubt have seen, the forum has come increasingly under attack from commercial trolls in the past year, spamming the board with links to their commercial web sites, sometimes hundreds of such posts greeting us at the start of the day.

We have now added software which will allow the board to spot a lot of spam automatically, and not publish it until an administrator has had a chance to look at it.

You can also mark a post as spam yourself by clicking on the new spam button at the bottom of the post.

This will mean that some posts are marked as spam by mistake, but if that happens to you, an administrator will be able to tell the software that it is not spam, and you will be able to give feedback as to why you don't think it is spam, if you think that is necessary. For example, some spammers include a lot of links in their posts, and most non-spammers don't, so a post with a lot of links in may be held for an administrator to check, but they will be able to easily see that it is not spam and release it.

This isn't about spam, but I'm not sure where/how to ask the question elsewhere on the site. How do I pull up a complete list of all of my own posts to the site so I can review that list?

Thank you.

There's a list of your recent posts in the right hand column of your profile. You can get to it by clicking on the "my public profile" link at the top of the page, or if you click on your own name next to a message there's a link to it from that page, and from the page you get when you have just signed in.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
