Under my name where it says stranded on a ***** theword censored is forum. I was only wondering why?

That is well weird.
With the shit that gets uncensored I really cant understand the logic.
Tell me about it.
Strange indeed. Particularly since the word "forum" obviously isn't censored in posts.
but "banned" isnt censored in posts, either...it cannot appear in your tagline..it looks like
****** if you try.
Haha. I only knew "Banned" was censored. I found out when I pretended to be so. I eventually found a work-around. AW found a better way (inserting an HTML code).
I'm not sure why it's strange. Otherwise you might have someone register a username like "sciforums administrator" and fool a few people.
hey porfiry.....what is the situation with the forum...i mean...i see that the donation box isnt full. does that mean the forum will shut down?
if so, could you give a warning the day before, or something so that some of us could arrange to keep in touch?
It's a donation box for 2006. If we exit 2006 without having met the target, then it'll be a pretty clear indication that the membership doesn't want the forum to continue.
or maybe everybody is still thinking about this:
This is interesting...
Look at the plan costs at asmallorange.com. On the face of it, it looks a a year's hosting on the biggest plan costs about $360 a year.
What am I missing? Where does Dave's $1100 figure come from? Are there extra costs? Do we use more than 100Gb/month bandwidth?
I can't really think of a good reason for it to be banned. Maybe it has something to do with trying to stop people from advertising other forums on here. But for now I guess it's anyones guess.
But to think of it, I kind of like it being censored. It add's that little bit of charactor to it.
Who would that fool? Who here doesn't know you're the admin? Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
I'm left wondering how likely it is that someone would register with such a name. I'm also left wondering why the problem couldn't just be taken care of when it arose.
If anyone would like to know the workaround, which is only detectable by those of you who use incompatable browsers (haha, you suck), either fish for the thread we had a long time ago, or ask me about it. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

i never could duplicate the characters that you used so i just saved the entire page to my harddrive.
We're on a $90 <a href="http://www.asmallorange.com/services/vps/">VPS</a> plan due to our intensive database usage. $90 * 12 = $1080. The extra $20 I'll spend on beer - I promise.
Thanks for clearing that up, Dave.
Don't worry, the bill will be paid.
I donated some already. Does that mean I get a 12 oz?
i think dave drinks more than $20 worth of beer a year
I would if I could. I have no friends to drink with.
move to belgium.
