    Question I don't know why, I'm asking this, here???

    I know, it can't involve, anyone, at B.T., but, it's weird! I just picked up my phone to see whether
    I had any messages. I didn't have messages, *but*, I *did*, see, I'd gotten a call from a state, I
    recognized! *But*, the only reason I know anyone from this state is, because, they're a BT friend!!:)
    Hmmmm??????

    It was a personal phone number, Jan.

    Visit this link and enter the number in the appropriate box. http://people.switchboard.com/reverselookup.php
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Thanks, Mike, but, this was hours, ago, so, the number's not even, in my phone, anymore!;)
    Oh, well! If, it was important, apparently, they know my number, so, they'll call, again!:) Or hopefully,
    they'll spot this and make themselves, known!!:)
    Thanks, again, Mike, I appreciate it!!:)

    Another thing to consider is that somebody dialed a wrong number. I have had that happen. Because I didn't recognized the number I'd call it and was told that they dialed my number by mistake.

    what do you mean?
    "Here's an unpopular opinion: I'm actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations. Sorry. If some innocent men's reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay." Teen Vogue writer Emily Lindin
