    Are you trying to get me to take a hint?

    Your "Cloudflare" system is messing with me again, flaring up once could say. Difficulties logging in, clicking on various threads.

    I sometimes have the same problem. VPN navigation usually helps, Aunt Shecky.

    Agree with Danik 2016... currently using no VPN today, with just one of the blipping "duplicate bug" traps every other post (or less perhaps).

    I am going to guess "Verified Pin Number" or "Verified Proxy Number".

    Here you are:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_private_network

    The point of it is that your real location remains unknown. For example, if the seat of LitNet is in US and you are in let´s say India and are having navigation problems you install a VPN and set your location to US. Usually the navigation of American Sites becomes easier.

    Why does this Cloud Flare garbage keep popping up whenever I try to click anything on this site? Yet somehow another NitLetter has been posting thread after thread --over a hundred of 'em) in the General Literature forum?

    I've been a NitLetter for a dozen years and this Cloud Flare treats me like a third class citizen?

    What's up with that?

    And by the bye, why should I have to search for, purchase and go through the rigmarole of installing this VPN app now?

    Exasperating!

    I fully agree. The "other LitNetter", by the way, is an Indian spambot that has been storming the site for two days now. We have had similar troubles in the past (including identical Cloudflare problems) but they were always fixed. Do any of the moderators even know this is going on again? Why have we not even heard from them? Yes, exasperating.

    I use a free VPN that comes with the free Opera browser that helps; I turn it off and on and vary locations as needed. PB is prolly right... the bot keeps banging away at the door until it gets through not caring if it gets blocked 99.999% of the time.

    Wow -- and all this time we thought the only 'bots we had to worry about were the Russians!

    Why don't we get Facebook (or Wikileaks) to ID the culprit(s) for us. Then we can steal their identities and make them "go straight"!

    I've made him the offer to turn himself in Aunty, but the only response is from a fakir astrologer giving advice on how to improve my love life.
