    Is it possible to have a forum dedicated to Education? If not, no worries and thanks.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Can do, I believe. We were discussing this in mod shop last night.

    Am I presuming correctly that there will probably be a focus on Common Core, at least in the immediacy? I'm trying to get a good handle on where to place it.

      Would political humor be appropriate???

        Yes, so much info coming out on that now..it would be nice to keep it in one place and to be able to post other educational issues there. I have two teacher daughters and some friends who point me to articles a lot. Thanks!

        More often than not.

          OK, after pondering on this a while, I'm going to sub this off of US Politics, at least for now. Common Core issues are almost certain to get political in the short term. If the forum eventually takes on a different bent and/or Common Core as an issue goes away, then I'm liable to move it up into the broader general or even lounge area.

            Sounds good, thanks!

                  None of those users are active users, they just registered so they show up in the list. That doesn't mean they have been activated.

                        Yep. It's doing just what it's supposed to do.

                        Spambots can manage to make it through the first level of registration pretty much any time (even with "human verification"). The only real way to stop that is to require referral-only registration, which I don't really want to do because ultimately that discourages/thwarts potentially good people who want to join up. So the anti-spammer software lets everyone get through, then takes all their information (user name, e-mail address, and IP address) and sends it out to check against a database of known spammers with one of those three particular characteristics. If one of those characteristics is on the list, the program just slams the ban hammer right down on the registrant. If the registrant doesn't match any of these characteristics, then the program just does what vBulletin does anyway based upon my settings: tosses them into a "holding queue" until they click the registration e-mail.

                        On much bigger boards, the program looks for certain characteristics in posts, especially the first few posts someone makes, to see if they are pushing "¢1al!s 4 free" or whatever, and if the program finds that, it drops the ban hammer and deletes all of those posts, generally almost as fast as the spammer can post it. Then the program transmits all of this data over to the database, which then holds that to tell others that dood is a spambot, and so the circle goes.
