Re: The New Joke Thread

It is very rare that I cannot see one of socialmax's images - and this has been true, in the caribbean, the US, and the south pacific

Re: The New Joke Thread

I see them most all of the time.

Can someone just suggest a different site that Max could post images to that would work for all? A site that would be just as easy for Max?

Im just trying to help.

Let's look at this realistically. If I stop posting altogether, that's going to be a good portion of the jokes suddenly missing.

Let's take a vote: How many people want me to stop posting jokes?


Here's my proposal: How about YOU spend some time posting jokes, instead of whinging?

How many people want StuM to start posting funny jokes?

I vote for funny jokes!

I have had trouble in the past viewing with my tablet, but not my computer. When I can't see them I scroll past, but when I can see them I always enjoy them. Keep posting man keep posting.

It's been going on for a long time. The cause has been identified many times and he has consistently made it clear that doesn't give a toss for all the forum members affected.


The solution is quite simple, if he wants the members of this international forum to see his funny images, he should attach them, find them on a different site, or host them somewhere else instead of only linking to images on one parochial domain.


If he wants to just entertain his compatriots, he should post elsewhere.

Suggestion, Just copy and attach as a file, and not as a link to some deep end of the earth website, such as say, somewhere in Montana.

StuM, ever heard of a copyright law? What you just did and what you are provoking Socaldmax to do is illegal. Shame on you.

The site in question is probably more pee'd off with hot linking bandwidth theft, hence the geoblocks.
