    Shouldn't it also
    1) Say "Hope you enjoyed your visit!"
    and
    2) Say "Y'all come back now, hear?"

    I like (not) how they took it upon themselves to do this, which nobody asked for, but STILL can't fix the fact that hovering ones mouse over a thread link makes it change color to the same as the background color, rendering it invisible!


    Good point.

    I see no possible reason for the addition other than clicks.

    Is it already fixed? I don’t get that message, even if I sign out. Normally, I just close the tab. 🤷‍♂️

    I wish they would speed up the response. Click on Recent Discussions and it take too long to bring up the page. Click on a thread, aside from going blank, it takes too long to bring up the thread. Are they running this site on an old 8MHz 8086 computer?

    I just realized that this feature is interfering with hotlinking even legitimate images from third-party hosting sites.
    To wit (and e.g.):

    51044150081_c0fc61376e_b.jpgDSC_0935 (2) by Mark Hardy, on Flickr

    This is the image hosted at the link above, FWIW:

    hmmm... upon reflection, I wonder if this had anything to do with this morning's internet imbroglio involving Fastly?

    Whatever the case, it's a pain in the Pohanka Hyundai. :|

    Commodore 64 with those newfangled "Sprites"

    Rumors of going to a 4.7Mhz DOS system are in the wind. Depends on the availability of a Tandy 1000 on eBay of course.
    Keep your fingers crossed !

    I'm sure Polk means well but how about we try NOT meaning well and see how that turns out ? 👍

    I noticed the extra “click” the other day. So which government agency has taken over the web design? I work for the USPS,and I say all the time,that they have reinvented the wheel so many times,it’s square.
