Ok, so that's the one exception out of many. And maybe Gremlins 2:The New Batch, but that's where I'm drawing the line.

The Godfather Part 2. Seriously. :)

That's up for discussion, but I would be one to agree. No better Godfather moment than the Fredo kiss of death.  :'(

I'm well aware of that. I'm also well aware that locking the thread, which is what I suggested, is a lot less "nuclear".

Which is less nuclear depends on whether the warheads are aimed at you or not. Maybe you could just not pay attention to the spurious notifications.

What do you think I've been trying for the last 4 years?

I've had no reply from Admin.

At all. Not a "no", nothing.

It seems that you both live in Canberra.
So: jump on the bike, pay him a visit, and beat him up nicely.
That'll teach him.

Ha. While it is remarkable we live in the same city, so do 400,000 other people, and I don't have nearly to go on to pick out the right one.

I'd like some kind of indication this has been read.

It has been read, and your name has been added to "the list."

Nearing a month since I went to all the work of deleting all my posts, and... Nice to see the One-Word Posts thread has been so active the last few days. Unlike any effective action on my request, which I didn't think was that hard.

I should be fair, an attempt was at least made by Gurn.

A second message to the Admin.

Silence.

I'm sorry, but this is fucking ridiculous. It would be one thing for someone to say they couldn't do something about it, or explain why they wouldn't do something about it. But to get no response at all is completely absurd.

I've had to endure this issue for a couple of years. So you can all endure me complaining about it here for a couple of years. Or, you know, SOMEONE COULD HELP ME FIX IT.

I still haven't had any reply from the Admin. Moderators, do you know if he's actually alive?

He is, to my knowledge. But he rarely visits.

As to your problem, I don't have the answer.

If it's any consolation, I have the same issue with "new replies" to deleted posts... ::)

That thread actually still contained a post by you.. I took the liberty of deleting it... 8)

Let's see if it helps.

Thanks. I thought we'd got them all (including replies quoting me) but I guess one got away.

You're welcome. :)

If you need to look for your own posts, it is best to use the advanced search: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php?action=search;advanced;search=

And fill in your user name, and this case, also select looking on thread title.

One Word Posts is still turning up in my "new replies" list, so removing perambulists hasn't done the trick.

I feared as much.....  ::)

Anyway, we're in the same boat - those word threads are a curse... :P
