No offense taken.  We need to do something about the spammers, they are hitting every thread!

I was wondering how hard it would be to put one of those boxes where you have to put in a code word before you could post.

I have taken the ability to post as a guest away from this forum.  The original intent was to allow for job postings without having to register. 

Also, it did require the input of a CAPTCHA code as a guest.  It's just that that is no longer much of a deterrence to the bots any more.

Anyway, I'll keep an eye out, but taking the guest posting ability should slow it down some...

I have worked in the commercial, Military, Contractor, DOE side of PMEL.  PMEL isn't the easiest job to have because there are high expectations put on us.  If you can deal with this insanity, the nice air conditioning, and in most cases a nice paycheck, you can also earn a lot of respect from others when everyone pulls together and gets through the big audit.  Integrity is the key regardless of where you work or who you work for.  PMEL is a tight community, one day you work for your boss and the next day he may work for you.  If you can make it in the contract world, it says a lot about you.  Also remember that competitors (contractors, civil service, military) also support each other to meet the overall mission.  I know this sounds too positive for some PMEL individuals out there, but I don't want to relive the negative.

Well put RandyL. I too have worked both sides of the aisle. Integrity was optional and usually frowned upon in my experience with commercial cal. I don't speak for everyone, but I'm sure there are quite a few of you who can relate.
