Those of us who live in major population areas tend to forget that there are still many places in this country where dial up and satellite are the only options.

What eHam needs is editing ability on posts (restricted to the OP), a new forum software that puts the current topics at the top of the lists, an elimination of anonymous posting and actual moderation for profanity and other nonsense on a regular basis rather only after several dozen complaints are received.

It does NOT need fancy formatting, putting images in posts, video or other similar bandwidth-hogging nonsense.

Yes - I noticed this as well - it took me a bit of time to understand what was causing the trouble. The good news is that I now understand it and I was able to clear the issue and will be working on a better fix.

Thanks for the report

I find eham to be an island of relative tranquility(other than the flaming ) among the sea of facebooks,my space and so on.People here communicate in sentences, not sound bytes,are reasonably literate and exhibit a degree of personality that is rapidly disappearing from our digital based culture.I find a lot of good information and lively talk here.I'm connected via a slow (40.0Kbps) dial up and it suits my needs just fine.The need for speed has a place,just not everyplace.

The responses here by  those who consider formating to be "fancy" or "bandwidth hogging" is laughable.

The good news is that these people are irrelevant amidst those who live in a fast moving digital lifestyle.  Most hams have been left behind by communications technology and more importantly the culture.  They are relics of a fast fading analog past and this is the demographic eHam caters to.  eHam is condescending by maintaining their Compuserve era infrastructure. It is what Hams deserve. And who they are.

"However, my frustration comes from hams who:..."

BOY!  You'd really hate ME if you knew me!  But, then, that's the problem.  Everybody hates everybody that isn't like them.  A pity!

"The social networking sites seem heavily populated (mostly) by hormonally-challenged youth whose spelling skills are painful to read and whose vocabulary seems to revolve around the expletive "fu*k" and the taunts "retard" and "moron", etc. ad nauseum."

YOU MEAN...  YOU MEAN... There are really places on the web that are not that way?  WONDERS NEVER CEASE!!
