    Is there a bug in the software?

    Out of my last 12 posts - I think 2 survived.

    When I queried the moderators, they disclaimed that anyone was deleting or moving my posts.

    Has the board been hacked?

    It is very frustrating to have a post make it (refreshed view minutes later) and then see it vanish.

    El_Guero: Some of your threads were condensed into one thread because they were similar threads. You were advised of that.

    They did not disappear, they were just put in another format.

    Also, I believe one of your threads was moved from one forum to another forum, but you were advised of that also.

    Other than those two instances, I have no clue what is going on.

    Actually,

    I did not get your PM, so I guess that there may have been a slight mixup there. Who knows, maybe that one disapeared also.

    But, I do know that many threads & posts disapeared.

    I am a computer engineer.

    I noticed occasional issues with the 'web server' up until recntly.

    It ain't occasional anymore.

    So I gotta ask: Is there a bug in the software or is the board being hacked?

    I have offered to find the problems in the past. But, with all of the posts that I am seeing dissapear - I think this problem might be bigger than I would want to volunteer for.

    God bless

    Wayne

    PS

    I am on a roll . . . I have finally had a post survive for more than an hour . . .

    I am glad that I am not carrying the pager for this website.

    God bless

    I have never experienced a bug in the system such as you describe.


    I have never had a post disappear in almost 3 1/2 years of posting and almost 17,000 posts.

    I assume as an engineer you have checked out your machine? I see several actives of posts of your online. According to your recent posts link ( http://www.baptistboard.com/search.php?searchid=137658 ) I can about a dozen posts still active from the last couple of days. If you are only seeing one post that has lasted more than an hour perhaps the BB page is not refreshing on your machine properly?

    Am wondering if our friend Wayne might have a virus that is not recognized? Trojan?

    Doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else.

    Either that, or someone has hacked his PC maybe?

    Wayne,

    It may not be a virus. I was just thinking out loud again.:laugh:

    I cannot understand why only your posts seem to be affected.

    If not a virus, someone maybe hacked your pc and is redirecting the posts?

    Just a thought.

    WOW!

    That is scary!

    I just have to think out loud and ask why someone would do that?

    I wonder if they are just tying to make me mad, or if something else is going on?

    God bless,

    Wayne

    Don't know, Bro.

    Could be a practical joke.

    The fact that no one else seems to have the prob tells me that something is redirecting from your end of the link.

    I hope you don't make credit card purchases from the pc. Hard telling what other might not be going where you send them.

    If you do purchase things on net, you may want to format (bad word) your hard drive with a low-level format disk and reinstall the OS.

    Redirecting my browser . . .

    Deleting posts and threads . . .

    I wonder if I should start keeping a backup of my computer?

    May be wise if you have the space. I back up regularly on my external or on a cd.

    You may also want to try to restore your pc to a previous date to when you first noticed your posts disappearing.

    That may or may not solve the issue.

    You may want to check permissions on your firewall and see what is being allowed or blocked. You also may want to step up your firewall security a notch.

    EG: Since no one else is having this problem then there are only a few explanations.

    1) Something is wrong with your computer.

    2) You or not acknowledging that some of your posts began multiple threads and the mods condensed them to one thread and some of your posts broke BB posting rules and were deleted. Now, you keep saying that you have asked the mods and they said they were not targeting your posts. That doesn't mean they aren't deleting your frequent posts that are contrary to the rules you agreed to when you joined the BB.

    I've seen a few of your posts recently that were either edited or deleted by mods. Maybe you should just try following the rules? I'm not a mod...it's just a hunch.

    As a computer engineer you should know that answer. :)
