As some of you know, something happened to my account almost a year ago.  I couldn’t access it and Doug couldn’t fix it either.  So, finally I set up a new one.  The old account was under the name, Occam.  The new one was the same but with a trailing period, Occam.  .    However, the registration program won’t accept two accounts using the same e-mail so I set up a Yahoo e-mail account to list.  And I thought that was all.  What I didn’t realize was that whenever anyone sent me an e-mail through this site, it went to the Yahoo account, which I never looked at.  I was just checking things in my profile and saw that account.  I went to it and saw there were 319 unread e-mails over the last year.  I have to apologize especially to Asanta and Darron along with quite a few others who sent me many, many notices of spam posts. 

There were a few others which I’ll have to go back and see what they were referring to so I can belatedly answer them.

Sorry.

Occam

LOL! I didn’t notice a difference at all, that there was any lag time in getting rid of spam.  LOL Glad you have it straightened out now!

Did not notice the period until you called attention to it in a recent post..

Thanks for all the work you and other administrators/moderators do ....

It happens so smoothly we tend to take it for granted.

Mriana, Mac, and I do our parts, but Doug is the wildman Spam Monster.  I don’t know how many times I’ve seen new spam and he zaps it before I even get a chance to check it.  He is really fast. 

(And, my comment to E-M:  Wise ass.  LOL  )

Hey, no problem Occam. One of my professors did something similar early this semester. He realized his error within a week though, as students were asking him if he got their e-mails.

You still got the job done when the rest of us weren’t available, Occam.  That’s all that really matters in the end.  smile
