Due to the fact that I can't stop the low life wanna-be handicappers from stealing content from this site, I am going to have change things once again. It was not enough to simply have people subscribe to the site because the pathetic losers just sign up with bogus emails and new names.
Sometime after the Belmont, I will be changing the sign up where it does not automatically get approved. I'm going to have to do that myself. I am not sure how that will affect those already signed up. I cant get an answer to that. Additionally, you will have a password now as well.
Since I'm still trying to figure out how to make the transition, and if I need to I will approve most all who are signed up already so you wont have to do a thing. But somehow you will have to enter your own password to gain access. Hopefully the Wix people will get back to me soon with how that would work out easily for all of you.
But I will let everyone know now - I will be blocking all of those signed up at this moment who have emails that are fake and do not truly exist. (I know because any email campaigns that I send out come straight back as undelivered) I will block people who have never contributed to the site and remain voyeurs simply because I do not know if you are who you say you are. I have no way to tell. You are more than welcome to resign up with a proper email and you are more than welcome to jump in on the conversations now. I have already blocked quite a few in the last 2 days, whether it was right or wrong, I simply have no way of knowing.
In addition, short of charging people to get dosage analysis' which to me makes me cringe, I will be sending out a special 4 digit password to open up the article. This extra step isn't so bad and should only take you a second or two to enter. But it will give me peace of mind that I know that I can trust my friends and we can continue to handicap races freely and openly without the worry of getting hijacked during the big races to come. I do not want to charge anyone to LEARN. It goes against the grain and it is not my style. (But you can buy the book someday!! :)
I apologize to everyone that I am forced to do this after only a year but unfortunately there are people out there that think they can steal their way through life. I will not allow it to happen to me any longer and I also will not allow it to affect what I wanted to do here. I love it too much.
More details to come as I work this out. And any suggestions would be great.
