Website Problem


Hope this doesn't violate the forum rules; please remove if it does. I frequent another DIY site (Removed link to another DIY site) and have noticed that many others here frequent it as well. Starting a few days ago, when I go there the page is all messed up and none of the links work. This is using Firefox (latest version). If I go here using Internet Explorer, the page works fine. Has anyone else experienced this? Just curious.

Me too, lol. I called one of the moderators out on his "I'm right, you're wrong, and that's just how it is...get used to it" BS...and got deleted. Which was fine

Yeah, I get that. I got banned from a computer forum for challenging a moderator on his attitude. Some of those folks have a definite God complex. Of course, I immediately rejoined with another user name lol.

I don't even know why I got banned. I think it was only temporary but I figured If you don't want my free advice I can go elsewhere.

Removed link to another DIY site.


PS: A Moderator is never wrong. Mistaken once in a while, but not wrong. LOL

Sorry about this thread. I figured posting the link would be OK since it's a legitimate DIY site.

Something more to the original post -
I've visited that site -
don't like the lay-out (among other things!)

Had no problems with Firefox.
Empty your "Browser Cache" -
Empty your "Temp" folders -
Try turning off "Add-ons", for Firefox.

Not a thing to worry about----I saw that thread yesterday and ignored it---

This is where you come for answers---I figured you would get the info you needed before it was closed---and everyone would be satisfied---

Over moderating is something we try to avoid here----From the responses,It sounds like that other site likes to micro-manage.

Thanks for the suggestions. But I've already tried all of those things.
