You all know my e-mail address right?

  • If you ever find yourself "inexplicably banned", or unable to access CathInfo, you know how to contact me, right?

    Take a guess. My name is what?

    matthew

    What is the name of this site?

    CathInfo.com.

    Put those 2 things together: matthew at cathinfo.com

    A few points:

    1. I'm not going to ban anyone out of the blue. If you have no idea why I would ban you, trust me: I have no idea either! hahaha
    2. I always give you a warning, unless you're brand-new and an obvious troll/troublemaker.
    3. Everyone on CathInfo now is a member in good standing, so something would have to HAPPEN before I'd ban any of the current members.
    4. Occasionally, my script to block bots, Chinese hackers, etc. catches good people in the net. If this happens to you, it will be manifested by not being able to access the website at all. KEY POINT: You also won't be able to visit other websites I host on my server either, like www.chantcd.com

    So if you're simply banned from CathInfo, you'd still be able to access my server. But if you can't access chantcd.com, then your blocking has nothing to do with CathInfo at all.

    5. Think about it: you haven't just been banned from an e-commerce site! So check ChantCD.com to see if it's a server-level IP address block.
    6. I'm not some unstable madman. If you only posted a recipe for cookies yesterday, or an innocent comment like "Yeah, I sure hope Biden doesn't win the election!" and then you find yourself unable to access CathInfo the next day, it doesn't make sense that you were banned, does it? Obviously you weren't banned. You must have gotten snared in a false-positive by my anti bot blocking script.

    Computers and software are rock stupid, they don't understand anything. The idea of a super-intelligent AI is the most ridiculous thing to a guy who deals with computers and software every day. You have to tell them Every. Little. Thing.

  • BUMP!

    Please, everyone, take a minute to jot down my e-mail address, or make a mental note of it.

    You never know when you'll need it.

    I just don't want anyone left out in the cold, wondering why they all the sudden can't access CathInfo.

    I'm doing my best to not catch any "false positives", but I can't guarantee 100% success. Everyone having my e-mail address is a safety net.

    I want everyone to see this "public service announcement".

  • Several members were just accidentally blocked when they clicked on the profile for user "Admin".

    It was basically a false positive for my malicious user blocking tool.

    I fixed it just now, but I'm grieved that it happened, because it doesn't happen that often. I try to be super careful about what results in a block.

    This is why I need CathInfo members to have my e-mail address in their address book -- or their brain.

    If a block or a "ban" doesn't make sense -- it's probably because it wasn't intentional. You need to speak up when something like that happens. Not just for your sake, but for many other members' sake as well.

    Thanks!

    (replace "at" with the @ symbol. And of course, e-mail addresses can't have spaces in them.)

  • Have you read this thread yet? If not, PLEASE READ IT. I don't want any CathInfo members accidentally banned, and not know how to contact me.

    P.S. There is another place you can meet online if CathInfo is every down (or unavailable to you alone): the Facebook group "SSPX Resistance". You can contact me through that venue. But it's easiest to send of an e-mail to matthew at cathinfo.com if you ever have issues.

  • Bump! I just got an e-mail from a CathInfo member who says he was blocked from my whole server (CathInfo and ChantCD.com) TEN DAYS AGO.
    Waiting to get his IP address, so I can fix it!

    Please, everyone, write down my e-mail address and contact me right away, if this ever happens to you! Because it's usually not just one person that gets blocked...

  • Bump!

    I want to make sure the recent decrease in CathInfo member traffic is organic, and not caused by some script error.

    If you ever find yourself blocked from CathInfo, PLEASE EMAIL ME.

    matthew @ cathinfo.com


    I note that this thread has only been read 1832 times, and that counts duplicates. Duplicates ARE possible when a thread gets another post, and someone re-visits that thread. But if a thread stays stagnant with 5 posts, for example, it wouldn't matter how many times you hit refresh -- only one visit would be counted.

    A lot of those 1832 hits are duplicates and guests. And so, I fear that many members still haven't read this message!

  • As a Texan, I'd like to know what kind of man who also calls himself Texan uses a phrase like "You all"...?
