I have been posting on this forum for 15 years now (since the original incarnation). I concur that no one should take a site outage so harshly, but I also share the concern that may be "ignored".

One question - if the site owner is a one "Evan Briton", then who is Jeff Smith? I thought he was the owner/admin but I suppose not...

Jeff is the administrator of the forum, but to my knowledge he is not one of the owners.

TAMR213, well said. I think a lot of us, including myself, share your concern.

Correct, I am not an owner; I am paid a small amount to administer, monitor, improve, coordinate, moderate, teach Kindergarten :-) etc. All moderators are volunteers.

Things have gotten better on the site lately; a lot of the issues were attacks in the form of thousands of spam registrations, etc. for which there wasn't an easy solution. I haven't gone through this whole thread but know that while I've been distracted lately with site performance issues, I am always interested in improving the site. I may not always respond personally due to time issues. Some of my fellow moderators also have admin privileges, and they've been a great help.

I am grateful to all of you for your continued participation in an evolving environment.
Next stop, Willoughby
