Re: KOREAN-WAR.COM (off topic)
I have another suggestion for you, Ed
I've noticed a lot of back and forth stuff between posters that could be
directed to one another rather than using your server to do the work. For
instance, if I post a question and get an answer to my question from Smith
only, and then respond to his answer by going back to the posting board, my
response immediately goes to thousands of people (like me) who are not
interested and shouldn't be in the communication loop. It's no wonder your
server is over used. A little common sense on the part of posters might
relieve the volume.
Quite frankly, I get so much stuff from KOREAN-WAR.com that's of no
interest, I'm about ready to "ring off."
Good luck in solving your problem.
