No more Hotmail. Yup, we've banned hotmail from signing up. Why, because they harbor spammers, but don't allow legitimate sites to email people on their domain. Looks like Microcrap has killed another of their business ventures...
Cloudflared: Welp, we've been Cloudflared. This is the first site of ours that is getting the treatment, and we'll evaluate how it goes for a few days. This should a) help with content spammers, and b) improve accessibility of the site.
It's kinda pathetic how much effort spammers go to to post their scams on this site. They all get deleted within 24 hours. Still thousands of hits and it does nothing. Seriously dudes, your proxies are well known, We just delete by IP address and poof all the scammers are gone. Kinda nice actually, you cost me about 3 minutes a day. I can live with that. lol
This site will be moving to a new server sometime in the next three days. I'm really shooting to get it done today (Sunday) however some things may not quite make the move until Monday, Feb 18th. This move will give us some load balancing. I'm amazed at how much traffic this site is generating already.
This was posted by my friends at hippy freaks. It really sums up my upcoming battle with the Great Falls School District:
The world does not need tourists who ride by in a bus clucking their tongues. The world as it is needs those who will love it enough to change it, with what they have, where they are.
If you live in Great Falls and your kids have been bullied, please, I need to hear from you. Only together can we get this district off their collective bottoms and make it a safe place for our kids. I've already been warned that the Teachers Association will stop at nothing to discredit me and my family. Guess what, I'm not afraid of their mafia style tactics, I will make sure that Great Falls isn't the next Sandy Hook or Columbine, we will not put education above safety or career before our kids. I'll be posting a lot in the next few weeks to help educate parents to their rights and the their child's rights.
No Child Left Behind is important, but never more important than safety both physically and mentally.
I've gotten comments that I'm not being fair to GFPS, this is not true. I've attempted to work with the system to effect these changes, I've met with comments that it is none of my business, or that that's just the way it is. I think not. GFPS will soon get a wake up call that it can not financially afford to continue to allow bullies nearly unlimited chances to harm others.
Incidentally, I do welcome teachers to join us in ending Bullying in the schools. I nothing but the highest respect for the teaching profession. I'm not sure the "warning" about MEA-MFT was a warning or a thinly veiled threat, I do know that working together we can make a bright future for the kids in Great Falls. We don't have to do the slow method of progress that allows innocent children to hurt.
