Paul......I sporadically receive this message when I try to catch up with earlier posts:



There are replies in this post but you are not allowed to view the replies from this post.

I tried to read the latest on Jalen Gaffney and got the message which has happened in the past.

Yeah, what's the deal with "friends"? What is this? Facebook? I think I've turned down Paultzman 8 times already because I don't understand why I should be friends with somebody on the site. We're all friends anyway, aren't we? ;)


austour Let me give you an example of how "friends" can be useful for a curmudgeon such as yourself. This is a stretch but bear with me for sake of example and explanation. Let's say you hate a guy. But the guy is friendly and for some reason likes you. During a weak moment, you agree to be "friends" with him. He starts sending you a bunch of Private Messages and keeps trying to engage you in conversations. You ignore them but finally give him a pissy reply hoping he'll go away. He is unfazed and continues to send you really nice private messages that just turn your stomach. The guy is just so nice that you want to puke just seeing his handle. You are really sick of him and finally it occurs to you that you could try unfriending him. Voila! he can no longer send you Private Messages...

Now reverse that and normal people might find a benefit to it is a positive way...

I did it a few minutes ago after I received your instructions. Trust me.......as the site's resident mollusk, I'll advise you if I continue to struggle. Thank you again for your help and for redmen.com.

Hey Paul thanks for all your efforts - maybe you should teach a course - maybe a weeklong retreat - on navigating the system :p
Anyway my question - perhaps trite - deals with "becoming "friends" - what exactly happens and/or what does that lead to. Does it become easier e.g. to communicate one on one? We didn't have these issues during the CW circa 1860 lol

That is a weird one since there are no permissions issues in that forum category for reading replies for ANY user logged in or not. Anyone else have this happen? I just looked at your account and there are no issues with it.

The two possibilities that come to mind are some sort of issue with your session / cookie conflict, or a security filter.

A few questions:

1) do you have more than one tab open? (like having several pages open simultaneously in the same browser) Or even have the site open in more than one browser like say Safari on your iPad and Internet Explorer on your PC or if you are like me and have multiple browsers installed on one computer?
2) Are you logging in from more than one computer or device. Like maybe leaving your account logged in at work and then coming home and logging in simultaneously? Or sharing your login with someone?

3) Did you ever do the delete cookies process as I outlined in #3 here:

I've had it happen as well but just keep reloading and trying again until it goes away.

I've gotten it as well, but am able to resolve by clicking on "latest"; then it brings me to latest replies in that post.

austour did you ever do the delete cookies ? Or do either of the other two questions apply?

Paul......thank you for your help......I'll try to respond as follows:

1. One tab for the most part, sometimes more than one. I don't have an IPad and rarely if ever use the web on my Iphone.
2. No, I do not log in from more than one device simultaneously if at all.
3. I tried to clear the cookies.......I'm far too ignorant to know if I followed the directions correctly or if I was successful

capmaker did you do this just now or before you got that not allowed to view message?

if the former, let me know if you get the message again.
