Hi, for about a week I've been getting this page instead of the home page and not sure what to do.   Here's a pic. Tried to make a forum support ticket but it didn't recognize my login.  Thanks

Just for the heck of it IROKONESS you might try a different browser and see if it does the same thing. I am not familiar with the one in your screenshot, so try Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome.

I've lost my home page

Banned for not checking the pockets of the last outfit you wore.  Hehe!

Seriously, tho, I'm not familiar with Opera, either, but I'm glad you got it sorted through Firefox. 

After all, we wouldn't want you to be MIA, now would we.

Well I uninstalled, then reinstalled.  Voila!    Just thought of it.  And it's better to have a hole in your pocket than a hole in your shoe. Just thought of that too.   

Banning starkers for traveling.       Thanks muchly.

Quoting IROKONESS,

Banning starkers for traveling.

Don't even bother. He has been banned from so many things you can't count them all. Problem is no matter what you ban him from you can't get rid of him so don't waist your time.

I didn't travel, I hopped from one thread to another to see how you're doin'... not that I'm stalking you or anything.

Hehe, you'd know all about it, turning up here, there and everywhere like a bad penny.  I mean, doesn't the fact that you were not given a personal invitation tell you something?  Truth is, you've probably been thrown out of more places than I've been in, so it's a bit like the pot calling the kettle black, isn't it!!!!

No point banning him, m' dear, he'll turn up like a politician kissing babies on polling day and carry on regardless.  And it's no secret that he's one of my best fans, turning up pretty near everywhere I go and pretending to diss me when in fact he admires me so, so much.  Ya know, he admires me so much he even tries to style his hair the same way as me.... not that it's too successful with a toupee.  He even tried to emulate me at tap dancing cos he'd heard I was good at it.... trouble was. he kept losing his balance and was forever falling into the sink.

The bathtub, eh?  That's cheating!  Nah, ya gotta start with the kitchen sink and work yer way up, and then you can only use the bathtub if there's more than one of you... like a duo or a tap dancing quartet. 

I learned tap from one of the best.  Yeah, dad watched a lot of Fred Astaire movies.
