      On top of that...I have been banned from worldfamilies forum for 7 days for posting what Terry the curator calls "silly" postings. With a threat to make the ban permanent. On-line bullying a day after I sent an email requesting removal from one of worldfamilies surname projects.

      who ever heard of a silly-ban in a public forum? It seems some have no sense of humour.
      Humm, interesting. It was due to a M. O'C....... and a small group of the "Irish mafia" at dna-forums that caused me to leave that group permanently. The M. O'C....... over there accused me of being "anti Irish" because I stated a fact, that no author at any time in history between Greco - Roman times and the 1500s used the term Celtic in reference to the Irish, Scots and Welsh Gaelic speakers. Any book on the Celts, even those written by Irish authors, acknowledge this as fact. Jingoism is alive and well at dna-forums - or was at the time of my departure. It is unfortunate that a moderator did not inform M. O'C........ that personal attacks are unacceptable and ban him or her (and another historically challenged member of their cohort) before I left in haste on Christmas Eve back in 2008.

        Read the forum rules about getting personal.

        "Please do not single out a specific user in what can be construed in a negative or harassing manner."

        Take it offline!

          There's no Irish mafia at dna-forums. If anything, it's the opposite. Lots of posters on dna-forums love *****ing about the Irish, especially about randy monks and how M222 isn't Irish.

            Maybe the CIA sabotaged the DNA Forums website in order to prevent us little people talking with: Russians, Chinese, Pakistanis, Iranians, Afghans, Arabs et al.

                I have e.mailed one of the forum moderaters to see if he knows whats happened not heard anything back yet. I have done loads of googleing to see if any answers come up but alas not a sausage.

                Will continue to search for an answer.

                    Then maybe it's a blessing for all of you that it is down?

                      I registered at DNA-Forums about a week and a half ago without any problems.

                      It is still down, just checked.

                        Dna forums down

                        I have an e.mail back from one of the forum moderaters he knows nothing either.

                        I did find a cached page via google it is a snapshot of the dna forum page as it appeared on the 4th March 2012 its is a bit like everyone had to leave in a hurry all quiet and spooky. I saved the page so I can look at it now and again and get my fix.

                          3 Days Now?

                          I think I haven't been able to get on to dna-forums for 3 days now and it feels like forever. I have tried to find an email contact for the site but suspect that it might be down too and only find comments that the site goes down on a regular basis for what seems to be technical problems. I can't wait for it to revive as I use it a lot and that's where I find out what is going on with SNP testing.

                            Word on the street is, "the DNA-Forums domain name is assigned to a malfunctioning server." So, if that's the case it doesn't have anything to do with letting the domain name lapse, or administrative decisions. Some hardware broke.

                              Lets hope that when it does come back online they will cut out the bull****.

                                In the past, when there's been a hardware or network issue keeping the site off the air, George has posted here and elsewhere letting people know what is going on.

                                This time he's incommunicado. It's not looking real good. I hope George is okay.
