I stand corrected...

And Matt - I know that with much bitterness!

All I meant is that since staff use this, then the Orwell Department must know that it is a site of good standing etc., and so "forget" to ban it!

Still, it's so oppressive! I expect the only reason this isn't blocked is because of Mark et al. ...
If Mike Harrod is still your IT man then it may have previously been blocked to prevent too many people seeing his photo from 1969 contained within Middleton house photos :wink: :wink:

Mike was a contemporary of mine.

The forum was originally blocked, but following a little representation (I'm not sure who from, but I tried!) it became un-blocked.

Our responsibility now is to ensure that (within reason) we don't give any reason to block it, whilst maintaining the freedom of expression required for a site like this to flourish....

............. but a minimal amount of what I would call 'regular users', if you'll pardon the expression ! :oops:

Thats why I think it would be a good idea if JT re-installed the ability to see when a specific member was last on line !!

I love the expressions "regular users" and "registered users".

I'm an addict, innit?

Your wish is my command J.R.!

I've been meaning to do this for a while, and have chosen to hack the code around myself to do it in the end rather than download a standard "Mod".
