Should Guests be allowed to post? Seems that when they do the threads often descend to Trollsville (or is it just me?)

I never did vote on this subject but as it seems to have been re-opened, I'll say that guests should be allowed to post. Although becoming a member is easy I think we should always be open to the views and thoughts of those who would decide not to join. Whether we agree with them or find them entertaining shouldn't be a consideration.

Back in 2004/5/6 guests generally posted funny or informative stuff, but these days they're just iain/notaguest/morons.

And in 2007/8/9/10/11 most of the long established members began to stop posting with any great frequency because the forum had lost its mojo and real reason for existing.Those left soldier on flogging a dead horse. Unfortunately, precious few of those left are good enough to turn it around, you are pissing into the wind of mediocrity. Such tragedy.
Perhaps you would consider the important things before you question the trivial. You always considered it just a game and a bit of fun.
You reap what you sow fella, we all do, some still have theirs to come.
If you really care make the difference or watch it fade into obscurity.
Maybe it already has.

I still stand by original vote of no. I find most guest posts tedious and you can't put guests on ignore as you can with tedious registered members.

Mind, there's always a sad, slightly melancholy, pleasure in revisiting the places where the great Tempus once bestrode the threads like a Colossus.

Is Tempus banned or just not posting anymore?

Now thats odd Mary.
Mr Fugit is a little before my time, however, I am familiar with his posts.
TBH, I always imagined him to be a foul tempered ( but well educated ) Midget.
Dunno why, but it makes the Colossus analogy seem at complete odds to my image of the legend.

I voted yes but would like to explain my reasons and add a caveat.
WSome posts by guests add greatly to a particular thread. My favourite thread (Dickie O) is agreat example of this.
But i think that a guest should be allowed one or two posts at most before they have to register.
We have the technology to create that rule don't we?


You dont happen to dig corpses up in your spare time as well, do you?

No. Why do you ask?

You havent been endowed with much of a brain, have you :)
Go figure.

Your absolutely correct.
If I were a more intelligent type of person I would post pithy insights such as "You dont happen to dig corpses up in your spare time as well, do you?" with no kind of context or immediate indication of what the hell I was talking about.
I go down the rather obvious path of making it apparent what I mean when I am posting and so could never hope to match your level of enigmatic posting in what is usually a fairly straightforward forum.
By the way, kudos for posting anonymously. Saves having to take any responsibilty for what you write.
Wish I'd though of that.

Far be it for me to step into a spat between a member and guest poster but, in this case, allow me to translate.
Going back to a long dead corpse and digging it up is not too dissimilar to digging out a 9 month old thread and trying to give it the kiss of life.
Hope that has enlightened you.

OIC.
I just thought it looked like an interesting thread and wanted to post on it, but I'd have known it was going to agitate anonymous users of Deathlist..............
