  1. I don't usu mind most of the arguments here. This however kinda hacks me off. Mental illness does not beget deceit. Having been diagnosed with major depression, and even hospitalized for it in years past, I can tell you that this simply is not the case. I'm sure it was said as a dig, and an attempt to be clever. Anyone who has experienced this would know you are way off base. We are making great headway in being more acceptable of mental illness as an illness, not a stigma. Don't start making generalizations that can colour others' thoughts, even if it only meant to be snarky.
  2. The H&L "two schools at the same time" mystery

    Gene, I see slams and jabs coming from both sides. I'm not condoning it. It's not just one side. Must admit, though, was a little amazed at the "treaty" and the quick reversal of it. We've received no moderator reports as of late. Here's what we can do, though. Michael W, please don't use the term Hardly Lee, and it is obviously upsetting some folk. Michael C, please stop saying you wish folk would go away. You can walk away from your computer for awhile. Here's the thing, anytime something inflammatory is posted, and I know the poster knew it is going to make someone mad, it makes a mess for us. Then we get it if we step in. Sometimes we don't read the posts, and we don't know what is going on, and then, it starts reaching critical mass. We fully expect that any complaints be addressed as reports to moderators. Please do so if you have a problem. Doing it on the forum just messes up the flow of the thread. OTOH, no one is holding anyone captive as a member here. If someone wants to leave, they certainly can.
  3. The H&L "two schools at the same time" mystery

    What??????? I thought this was resolved. Like it or no, he has as much right as you do to be here.

    If one had evidence, I would think they would want to share evidence to prove what they say. That way, if anyone verbally assaulted someone, and they proved what they said was true, they would get an apology. Do you know who the shooters were? Or the name of the person who administered the final kill shot? If you know, why don't you say?
  5. The H&L "two schools at the same time" mystery

    Ok. Here you go. Please be civil.
  6. The H&L "two schools at the same time" mystery

    ENOUGH! I'm going to lock this thread for 48 hrs. My apologies to those who have attempted to keep it civil here.

    He contacted me on FB and told me he was interested in the Assassination, had a new theory ,and had written a book on JFK. He wanted me to read it. I told him about our forum,( he didn't know about the JFK forums outside of FB.) and that he should join, and , discuss the gist of his book, and see what you folk thought.I figured if what he shared had any merit, you guys would say so, or if it didn't you'd tell him why. I didn't know what he had, but I thought this would be the best place to talk about his theory, whatever it was. I also offered to show him how to create a thread, and use the search function. I'd do that for anybody. Hey, Glenn, what the hell is wrong with that?
  8. New Article by John Armstrong

    How about a 24 hour moratorium on this thread, so folks can rethink what they want to discuss, and won't be so inclined to bash, or to repost their own posts just because they think someone hasn't seen it?
  9. Oswald Leaving TSBD?

    Hello there, everybody! This is just an FYI explaining why the thread is locked. There have been a couple posts made by someone who someone else, (who is, BTW, unable to post a response) says are untrue with respect to what was posted. We have received two reports and a couple threats too, just today. I can't seem to get a hold of the other Admins yet, so I'm locking this thing, so the post won't be reposted. I have stuff to do this weekend, and I'm sure the other Admins do too, so this, IMO, solves the problem. This thread was pinned because we got so many complaints, mostly from outside, that it should be pinned. Now, it is still on the top, of the forum, as well as the top of complaints, and .has been a real problem for the last couple years. Personally, I would be tickled pink if it were unpinned and relegated to the land where all good threads go.

  11. Cliff, I have too. It just doesn't come up for me.
  12. Duncan has this thread pinned on his Forum: https://www.jfkassassinationforum.com/index.php/topic,14904.0.html And this is what he has said about it: "The issue of this forum redirecting to rogue websites has been solved. On searching any search engine for links to this forum, all jfkassassinationforum.com links which had been changed by the anonymous search engine exploiters, are now clean and free from redirection. Please test the forum search engine links for problems on any search engine of your choice, and please post a short report on this thread. I can guarentee that there will be no problems. This site is safe, Your computer's are safe, There was no DNS issue, There was no Forum Virus. For security reasons, I cannot reveal the solution, sorry. " Looks like it's taken care of.
  13. Yes, it's a very good Forum. Just be sure to go through the link directly: https://www.jfkassassinationforum.com.
  14. LANCER ARCHIVES: We are delighted to announce that The Education Forum has recently acquired the rights to host the archives from the JFK Lancer Forum, and we thank Debra Conway for that! Unfortunately, those archives have been subject to hacker attack, so we may need professional help to retrieve them prior to their becoming available to access through The Education Forum. MEMBER BOOKSTORE: The Education Forum also has plans to add a Bookstore to the Forum! Our purpose will be to allow the authors on The Education Forum to sell their books through our site, as well as members to buy and sell their used JFK books from their personal libraries. This is NOT a profit-making venture for The Education Forum, but merely a service through which transactions between sellers and buyers can be facilitated. As you may be aware, The Education Forum is currently operated as a forum funded by the contributions of its users. At this time, we are appealing once more for contributions in order to continue to provide this forum and its vast archives, hopefully in perpetuity. But to do so does require funds in order to cover internet hosting fees and related expenses. NO INDIVIDUAL makes a monetary profit from the operation of The Education Forum. In the spirit of our founding members, we continue to offer the content at The Education Forum as a FREE resource, and will always do so, as long as we possibly can. 2015 will begin a new year, and if we can fully retrieve the archives from the JFK Lancer forum, we'll have even more content to offer our members! Our membership is increasing, and many of our longtime Forum members are returning, offering their insights on the ongoing discussions here at The Education Forum. YOUR input is what powers The Education Forum....but it's also YOUR contributions that continue to make The Education Forum available on the internet. Please visit the donation tab on the index page, and give what you can to allow this valuable resource that is The Education Forum to continue. There is no minimum contribution level, so we ask only that you give what you can. For those of you who have previously contributed, we offer our thanks for helping us keep this Forum available. Your gift is important, whether it's large or small. So won't you take a moment while you're already here and make your contribution to we can continue The Education Forum? Thank you for your help and your generosity, and we look forward to an exciting time with expanded offerings for you in the coming year...and beyond! We need YOU to keep The Education Forum alive, intact...and GROWING!" Index page: http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?act=idx Warmest wishes to all of you in the New Year, The Ed Forum Team

  16. Time Team

    I'm sure we could put up an Archaeology section, though.
  17. Time Team

    Evan, i don't think anyone has an outside source for this, aside from you tube, and we don't want any copyright infringements.
  18. Jim Marrs Has Passed Away

    How very, very sad. His was the first book i read on the Assassination. RIP, Jim.
  19. "Copyright It shouldn't be surprising that similar legal issues surround the online posting and distribution of copyrighted materials. The content providers (the performers, writers, artists, and retailers) want to protect their copyrighted materials. Many website operators also want to abide by copyright laws, but they're concerned about new laws that could stifle the dynamic growth of the Internet. Online bulleting boards make it especially easy for someone to upload a song, story or image to a bulletin board. The bulletin board operator then stores the digital file, and someone can come along and download the file. Generally, the bulletin board operator is liable for violations of copyright laws. Clearly, the poster is also liable for copyright infringement. An interesting line of cases dealt with the Church of Scientology's Religious Technology Center ("RTC"). RTC sued several former Scientologists for copyright infringement and trade secret violations. This arose out of the defendants' posting of Scientology materials on the Internet. Overall, the cases held that individuals who post the infringing materials are liable for copyright infringement. In some cases, the law will hold website and bulletin board operators liable too. They should use available technologies to prevent materials from being copied. Moreover, after they know about the infringement, they need to take appropriate steps to prevent additional infringement. Even a high traffic forum probably doesn't remove the operator's duty to prevent the unlawful distribution of copyrighted materials. In March 1999, Novell secured a landmark judgement against a Belgium Internet bulletin board system operator. He said there were too many postings to have to monitor everything. However, the judgment confirmed that the operator was liable for allowing someone to post unlicensed software" http://www.thsh.com/Publications/Other-Publications/Defamation-And-Copyright-Infringement-Online.aspx
  20. Ramon, It's a dangin' copyright violation, and threatening to publish it anyway may create legal problems for you as well as whoever hosts it. Please do not publish it here.
  21. Mystery Man?

    Just go to Google, search "Black Dog Man", and cut the link and paste it in the post. If you upload it only, folks who are not members can't see it.
  22. Houston Mock Trial in November

    Well, Shucky derns! We didn't make the list. De gustibus non est disputandum.
  23. Why didn't Richard let the princes be seen after the rumors of their deaths began? Since he had already bastardized them, how would it have hurt? Even Elizabeth Woodville, their mother, believed they were dead, so much so that she backed Henry VII and conspired together with Margaret Beaufort to unite Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. Why would she do this if there were any likelihood of them being alive? There was an imposter prince prior to Perkin Warbeck--Lambert Simnel. Simnel was said to be Earl of Warwick but was found out later to be a commoner. The real Earl was already imprisoned in the Tower at the time of Simnel's appearance The fact that an impostor prince had been offered prior to that, makes Perkin's claim suspicious. It does not require a lot of thought as to the motive of Richard III to have the princes killed because had he let them live, there would be those who would back them as entitled to the throne. This is also a big reason to me that shows Warbeck was not a prince. He could've created an uprising against Richard III when of age.
  24. Anna Watts

    She doesn't have to be interested in JFK to be a member here.
  25. Joe, we just created it less than an hour ago. . This was not an admonishment. I didn't know where to announce it.
