Dmitry,

He wasn't banned for having bearish or dissenting opinions. He was banned because after repeated warnings he continued calling names and making personal attacks on a board where both those practices are specifically prohibited.

I experienced the same thing as he did on the board when I first arrived there, thinking I could act just like he does. I received warnings from the administrator just like he did.

While I understood that to remain on the board I had to follow the rules, he did not. I adjusted my behavior accordingly, he did not.

Those of us on the SI AAPL board enjoy a lively exchange of ideas without having to resort to or be exposed to name-calling and personal attacks, which makes the SI AAPL board one of the better AAPL boards on the web.

We all know there is no shortage of AAPL boards on the web where people can make personal attacks and call names, but we appreciate that SI provides one AAPL board that is free from that sort of thing.

Dear Members,

A systematic slowdown was discovered last week affecting users who have over the course of time have performed a large number of image uploads to SI.

Every time one uploads an image to SI, a thumbnail of that photo is added to your private thumbnail archive. This is done to make it easier for you to re-select that image for future use.

The SI editor downloads a user's entire thumbnail collection when composing new messages.

Certain users brought to my attention dramatically slow load times when composing new messages. It was discovered upon investigation that these users had accumulated large private image thumbnail collections, and clearing these collections resolved the issue.

To fix this problem for everyone else, I wrote a program that will automatically run going forward and will limit all users' thumbnail archives to previews of their most recent 100 images uploaded, if the user does not prune the archive themselves before this limit is reached. This in no way will affect any post or the images in any post that you have made in the past to SI.

I ran this program tonight, and the following users should notice an improvement in editor load times, from slight to very dramatic, depending upon the number of thumbnail images deleted:

User Donald Wennerstrom (1036900) has 754 private image thumbnails.
deleting 654 least recent thumbnails.

Dmitry,

While I still only have 15 thumbnails in my library, I can't delete any of them even though the dialog indicates that DELETE was successful. This is the last one I tried to delete.

I have the same problem, I tried using Google Chrome and also tried using I.E.9. I cannot delete any images. Only 30 images in my library. So it is not causing any problems yet

B.K.

Please feel free to delete them all, Dmitry.

I tried to delete them myself when this first came up but was unsuccessful. I didn't understand why they were saved in the first place. Once posted, I really have no further use for them.

Perhaps there could be an option, when posting, for the user to save them and if "save" is not selected they are automatically not saved?

....

I'm still having issues typing in the original screen. I can type a whole line and nothing appears until I stop, back up the curser, then forward the curser. Weird?

Also, if I make a typo and go back to correct it or add a word, there is overtype and it takes a while for it to fall into place.

This doesn't happen in the edit screen although, if memory serves (and it often doesn't), in the past I believe it happened in the edit screen and not the original screen.

I'm sorry some of you are unable to delete your private image uploads.

It is possible perhaps this is a file permissions issue on our server.

Please recommend this post if you want me to simply delete your entire private thumbnail library. This seems easier than investigating this particular matter.

If the problem persists after your library has been cleared, let me know and then we might look into it further.

Regards,

@Dima

I've disabled NoScript and the other ad blocking software. Now I still get that pink bar, and sometimes, with those headache inducing dancing ads.

Something wrong with your code.

I can use the site on an Android again but even though I have no blocking software there I get the pink bar thingie.

The Pink Thing is less annoying than all the stupid flashing ads, however.
