Hi all,

You may have noticed that the Guestbook has been down over the last 24 hours...

This was caused by a picture being posted of bunny girls...not one bunny girl, but three!

Google Adsense, which supplies the banners which the host placed on the Guestbook, complained about hundreds of forums, including this one, describing bunny girls as objectionable content. 

Imagine the mayhem that could have been caused, on a music based forum, if someone had posted the covers to Electric Ladyland, Time and a Word or even a certain Roxy Music album? 

To resolve this, we have moved onto a different package, which not only removes the Google adverts, but by doing so, Google's ability to object to the posting of...errr...bunny girl pictures. 

Thus, normal service is resumed...

Indeed. [biggrin]

Nice to have it back and I can post again. 

Thanks Daniel.

And yes - it is nice not to have those ads - an added bonus.

Thank you Daniel!

With all the "goings on" in the world of /ASIA\ right now, we need the most optimal experience here at John's Guestbook - WITHOUT the invasive "fussiness" from Mrs. Google. LOL.

Glad to have access again, though. (Thanks for the explanation!)

1) It's ROCK and ROLL - breasts have to be involved.  Not just involved, but welcomed, flashed, autographed...I digress...

2) Thank you for your work, Daniel!  (Any possibility I'll be able to upload an avatar?  Some people are never satisfied.)  [rolleyes]  -- Cori

I'm not sure that 'package' is the most tastefully appropriate word to celebrate our release from the lash of Google.

Nice one John !!

Actually, have only just got my 'puter back from being repaired, so nice to see the changes made while I've been away. Also, does the 'Add reply' work now?

PK.
