Why is the security for users so severe on PYM WEBSITE

Posted on 8th mo. 1, 2011 at 11:30am 3 Comments

When accessing the miniutes from the session just past, I had a few comments to add that might make this more useful.  I had to log in to my account. Then I had to prove I was human about 3 times before I could submit my comments to and unknow censor before it will appear.   This seems like a way to dicourage communication rather than promote it.  Three of main choices on the home page of PYM.ORG take you to pages related preparing for the past sessions.  What does this say to seekers trying to… Continue

Hi Bill: whoops, just seeing your August 6 message. Sorry about that, I find I sometimes miss Ning messages, best to email me at martink@martinkelley.com if you want to insure I see it.

I have a million things on my plate but I'd be happy to try to look at what you all are doing. It's much needed work. You might have looked through my Quaker Ranter stuff, but if not, here's a link to the Quakerism 101 material there (including a piece written around the time I was at Moorestown!).

ps: If the site you're doing doesn't work out, we can set up a group here on QuakerQuaker--either open or private.
