    Did I mention the time we had a guy have a spindle fall apart on him and he rented a vehicle in the middle of the night and completed the drop and I had no clue there was an issue????? Hell, I'd rent the vehicle and help or at least chat him up through it. But no. Done deal. Wake up and he's in GA in a rental. BOOM, again. LOL!!

    I've seen threads get sidetracked but how the hell do we go from spam about elogs to a cheerleading festival for CRE ?
    Who generally wouldn't enter a conversation about elogs.
    Speaking of the big M, how are you going to handle a guy picking up a placard load on January 8th. What will he be required to do log book wise ?

    I have no problem with the cheerleading, you deserve it more than others that have been celebrated on here.
    Just funny to me that THIS thread morphed into it.

    This thread was DOA, so the door was wide open to morph into pretty much anything.

    The thread starter also tried to create an account using another name and email address (both accounts using the same lame-assed throwaway email service, incidentally), with the second account Not Approved. As a result, he hasn't bothered to even log back on to EO since starting the thread.

    Interesting, and kinda funny to me, the vetting that goes on over getting onto a site that discusses the merits of earning 92 cpm vs 87 cpm and where people are amused by wheel chocks.
    His second account didn't get approved.

    We'll , I guess we should thank all those that work hard protecting us from the likes of the OP.
    Without all your hard work I guess we could degenerate into the crap another expediter site I visited had turned into.

    Dealing with spammers used to be a totally manual process that was tedious and time consuming. And that mostly fell on chilloutchillout to deal with. One of my first goals was to automate as much of that as possible.

    Other than Canada (and Australia, because of the popularity of Hino trucks down there), people from foreign countries really have no business on a North American expediting Website forum, other than to post spam. Now, when someone tries to register from a foreign country the registration is automatically rejected. We see anywhere from 3 to 8 attempts a week to register from places like Russia, China, Pakistan, India, The Philippines, etc. Those people don't have anything at all to contribute to a US expediting forum.

    US and Canadian spammers can still get through, though. But all registrations are checked for certain "spammy" characteristics, and each characteristic is given a score. If the score is high enough, the registration isn't automatically approved, but rather is flagged for manual review and approval. We get about 2 or 3 of those a week. Usually they get approved, tho.

    Certain domains known for spam are given a score, open ports that invite hackers gets a score, matches with IP addresses and email addresses in known spammer databases are given a score. VPNs and trash mail (one-time use, throwaway email) addresses are scored. If they have enough things flagged and the score is high enough, the registration is automatically rejected. We get 3 or 4 of those a week, too.

    Some are clever and will be in China and using a US-based proxy server and will get in, but all new users are restricted from posting certain spammy words and URLs until they have a certain number of successful posts. Most spammers will give up and go away on their own after not being able to post their URL.

    There are other things we use to catch spammers, as well. For the most part it works.

    Perhaps this thread should be moved to Channel 19.

    Unless something changed, they won't do placarded loads. When I was there we didn't do them.

    I think that's how I'd run a van only operation.

    And as far as e-logs are concerned, I guess it would really change the way 4 wheeler teams are valued.

    A van team should be as valuable as a straight truck team if the freight fits.
