Re: Welcome to 2A Defenders

When you register, you will be placed in to a "holding pen" pending mod approval of your ID or first post. As soon as you are approved, your post(s) will appear on the site and your posts will then appear immediately after you make them and you are an active member. It was unfortunately ne...

Re: Russian spambots

We have now gone to mod activated accounts. After you register successfully, your account is held in a holding area until a mod approves it. There is a way around that for paying members, so the spam posters now have to pay to post their spam.....

Re: Russian spambots

Sure - and as the site grows, the mods will have that as a duty. If you allow free email addresses (and we currently do) and self managed user account activation, there is going to be spam, which has only gotten worse over the years. The other alternative I'm considering is mod activated accounts - ...

He won't see it because he is gone from here, but this post stays up for the benefit of other Russian spammers who decide to drop by. I hope they find a grave stone fitting for their crimes.

Re: Counter battery radar

The site has been getting traffic from Kiev today. On the speculation there is some interest all the way around, the site would support members of Ukraine's military posting here for questions and support regarding US military equipment.

Re: 2144658

The site allows the user community to have free email addresses unlike other sites. This allows spammers to register and post their spam. There are three strategies to deal with this: 1 Mods delete that junk from those who go through the effort to post it 2 Set a spam trap forum on the site the real...

Re: Ideas to bring in new members.

One of the principles here is that people are free to and will use the sites they find useful and entertaining. There will be no prohibition on mentioning other sites (the limit being that if you register here for the sole purpose of promoting your commercial enterprise, that will get a hard look fr...

Re: A suggestion

Here in the General Discussions I would envision having several communities of interest. This would be one of those communities. I propose a forum "The Armed Citizen" for the discussion of carry permits, defense ammo, courses, equipment and so to cover the topics you list. Is this acceptab...

Board Software Updated

This will probably be a quarterly occurrence. A new version of the board software has been released and installed, which also involves a database restructure. I hope this also solves a couple of issues with logins and features.

Had to Tighten Security

We had a spam account get activated, and I shut that down. I still want to allow the use of free email services, but that comes with some risks of dealing with user accounts that will have a short stay. As a rule, if you have problems with login, delete the cookies from this site, and let them be re...

Re: We Are Now Operational

Firefox tends to default to the first time a site connection is made. Click on the lock by the site name: ssl.jpg If you still have the red line through the lock the clear cookies and site data option should have fixed that on the next connection. The other option should bring up the setting to forc...

Any old 2adefenders.net cookies and the site likes browsers to be set for https only connections, but that may impact other browsing at other sites.

Supporting the Site

This site is hosted by a small technology company dedicated to supporting the US Constitution. Therefore this site can not be deplatformed or have board policy shaped by the fear of having the infrastructure operating the site taking the site off the net. It will only go away if there is no interest...
