PLEASE NOTE: we do have a couple of members with the @mail.ru extension who are valid AND valued members. If you experience difficulty posting, please email either Karen or myself and we will be able to grant you access based on other user ID information.
We apologize for having to take such a hard nosed approach, but we hope to head the problem off before it takes over the board- like what has been happening in other online groups.
We owe it to you members and friends to protect you all- especially our younger members- from online predators, solicitors and otherwise freaks.
Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
