    I'm just a bit curious. What criteria is used here to decide whether a new account will be activated? I ask this because I recommended this board to someone that I knew from another board and their account was declined. They were told that "they were not what we are looking for." As I don't know this individual personally, I cannot vouch for them per se. However, in my previous experience, this individual has always been courteous and well informed and would add value to any political discussion forum.

    I'm not sure I want to take up the cause or anything. I'm just wondering what sort of things might disqualify an applicant.

    Different techincal problems can arise.... or the person, perhaps chose a name that got blocked as spam.... happens.

    So, it's not championing a cause, just let Gunny know the name of the person you referred.

    If Eots got in, there aren't any standards to speak of.

    LOL. I never go away. I just don't post as much as I did in the beginning. But I read almost everything.

    No hard feelings eots, I was just poking fun. I may think you're a bit kooky and you may think I am a bit of a jerk, but it's nothing personal. At least not on my end. I respect your right to your opinions and ideas and your right to share them.
