I have similar problems. It doesn't help that I have aphantasia too (no mental imagery).

So we all know that those with Autism/Aspergers send to have trouble realizing when someone is joking, which definitely is the case with me. But what seems to me to be even more common with me is that I do, in fact, know that someone is joking, but because I respond to it in the wrong way, people t...

The constant spamming has made me lose interest here and it's the same stuff anyway I have already posted. I have been busy anyway with life. It was indeed getting very bad, but it seems that Alex has now made some changes that really are blocking the spam rather effectively. I would like to convey...

I've added some filters. Hopefully the spamming will stop now.


Thank you very much for doing this! I think it will be very much appreciated by many people on WP.

- if we completely banned threads from new users then that would shut them out (and potentially cause the spammers to go back to spamming existing topics, which is much harder to deal with), and limiting them to one a day wouldn't stop them because they create new accounts very easily. ... Some of ...

I cannot imagine how administrators of this forum could decide that the best policy against the spammers is to do...absolutely nothing. And yet that appears to have been their decision, for months or years now. [ Devil's advocate ] How do you know that is the admin's policy , appearances can be dec...

I often struggle to have a conversation with someone while the TV or Radio is on as I unable to concentrate while there is background noise , it's almost as if my mind tries to do both - listen to the person and the TV at I hate it if there is a TV on when people are expected to talk with each othe...

Surely it must be counterproductive for a spammer to create problems like this as common sense would suggest new measures would be used to stop you. I think the problem with this forum is that it is not counterproductive for the spammers to continue. It seems that no countermeasures are ever used t...

I had no idea spam was an issue here. I'm not a member of any other forum but it does seem ridiculous that a new member can post so many new threads at once. I think one should be the limit. If the problem persists, I'll have to close my account. :( I really don't want to do that but if it's one th...

One of the flaws I'd like to point out (and the reasons those on the spectrum can do pretty well) is that this is a multiple choice quiz. In real life, you don't get four options to pick from when trying to read someone's emotions. I found that sometimes I had no idea what emotion the set of eyes w...

More sewage today! This has been going on, with varied intensity, for months or maybe years. There's no reason to imagine it is going to stop any time soon. I am therefore very puzzled by the apparent lack of intent to do anything about it. Depending on moderators coming along every day to clean the...

Electronics has been a "special interest" for me for decades. I love building vacuum-tube amplifiers, restoring old radios, etc.

Pages of garbage again on GAD, 8:20am CDT. Surely time to prevent multiple postings by new "users"? Actually, just automatically banning users who include "91" in their subject line would solve most of the problem at the moment!

Moderating or waiting to post may have to be an option, but I'd be uneasy about it especially within support forums. Some people join to get immediate feedback and aren't looking to wait until they can get answers to their questions. It could work if there is an active moderation group so that the ...

The plague that will never end! You seem to be quite right! The plague is continuing now... I just don't understand it. Surely someone in charge would look at what is happening, and decide that something has to be changed about the policies, so that newly signed-up members cannot post until approve...
