It's funny how most people tippy toe around the issue of access or I should say lack of access and their true feelings about it.
People have been mincing their words about server issues and difficulty of access for as long as I have been here, which is six years, and during which time, I might add, server issues and spotty access have been constant features of Basenotes.
So let me start by not mincing my words. This is the message I sent to Grant via email:
"It's bad enough to constantly have to struggle to get on this site and then once on to get kicked off because pages won't load, but to actually be redirected to a Volkswagen ad every time a page won't load is the ultimate insult to someone who has been patiently waiting for 6 years to see if there will at least be one week when there are no server issues. I and a lot of Basenoters are losing our patience with this random perennial chaos.
I am a member of many forums, and this is the only one that consistently has major and ongoing problems.
Is it ever going to change and what do you seriously intend to do about it instead of the same of temporary fixes that only seem to lead to more problems? Seriously, it's beyond a joke.
P.S. I have no way of being sure that Grant got my email because right after I sent it, and the instant the message came up that acknowledged my sending it, I was redirected to a page that had on it the same Volkswagen ad I complained of above. Every time I clicked the back button, the same ad kept reappearing. Hostage, again, to server issues. It took me 27 tries to finally get this post up.
