    First let me say I am new here and really like this forum and how its run! My question is how do I stop the forum from notifying my email of everything added to any thread after I have read or responded to it? I have tried going into my preferences and can't seem to stop them from coming into my Email. Am I missing something? Thanks DR

    Once you reply to a thread you're then "Subscribed" to that one. At the top of each thread you will find a "Unwatch Thread". Click on that. You should no longer get emails about that thread. You have to do that for each thread you respond to.

    Idk if imI posting this in the wrong spot or not but does anyone else use SwiftKey for messaging on mobile? It's a great keyboard app but out of nowhere its glitching on nwfa and nwfa only. Its predictive feature is all messed up and inserts the wrong/throws extra letters in when i hit space. Ive uninstalled/reinstalled to no avail. Samsung app works fine but switching keyboards to use the site is almost as annoying as what I'm dealing with.

    so you let people in your forums to talk about and buy and sell guns but there's no help if someone gets screwed over in your forums.

    And FYI, we don't "police" the classifieds. It's buyer beware just like any other site. But you are welcome to message any of the staff and we would be happy to see if we can assist.

    LOL, Did you not see what was required to join? Is there some elaborate sign in, proof of who you are? The answer is no. Why would you treat this transaction with less scrutiny then craigslist or any other forum that proof of who you are doesn't exist?

    The staff members will do what they can to help, but accusing others of not doing the due diligence that you should have done is failing to take personal responsibility and just idiotic in my opinion.

    Staff-feel free to remove this, but it pisses me off when the dumbassery of a member is blamed on this forum.

    in the first place sir I am new to all of this and i trust to easy. but I'll be dammed that you or anyone else is going to call me an idiot. and I hope this guy bubblegums all your members that way all of them may hold you somewhat responsible. and it sounds like you are so proud to be like the others to chicken bubblegum to be different better than the others. helping your members working with them instead of sitting on your hands playing with your bubblegums. people can change things if they wanted but I guess your to much of a dumbass to realize it. take me off your membership list.

    Anyone else experiencing lag on the site? I feel that since the scheduled update, it’s very slow to load pages or finish thinking after I send a “like”. I mostly hang out here on an iPad

    It appears either this site or Highroad has been hacked and someone has learned my password for these sites.

    It seems that, revolver, is your password. You do not know me and you are probably thinking why you are getting this e-mail, right?

    actually, I installed a malware on the adult videos (porn) site and you know what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching videos, your browser started operating as a RDP (Remote control Desktop) having a key logger which provided me accessibility to your display screen and cam. after that, my software collected every one of your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as email.

    What exactly did I do?

    I made a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a good taste lol), and next part shows the recording of your web camera.

    What should you do?

    Well, in my opinion, $3900 is a reasonable price tag for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).

    BTC Address: 1JPHL9EqMLhWcrHem7UjkJkZFAeZtBgapZ
    (It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)

    Note:

    You have one day in order to make the payment. (I've a special pixel in this email message, and at this moment I know that you have read this message). If I do not get the BitCoins, I will, no doubt send your video to all of your contacts including relatives, colleagues, etc. However, if I do get paid, I will erase the video immidiately. If you really want proof, reply with "Yes!" and I definitely will send your video recording to your 14 friends. It's a non-negotiable offer, so do not waste my time and yours by replying to this email message.
