    More concerning was I was locked out of the forum. Never got this message before (I removed my email from the pic)

    Happy tapping!

    If it makes you feel any better, that's the message the system sent me (on all my devices) on the two occasions during which I was locked out of the forum earlier this month. Plus it was deleting many of my messages. (I'd ask if that happened to you, but for all I know your reply would be deleted by the "bot".

    Interestingly, though -- I was able to log into my game just fine all that time.

    Apparently, the EA Forum mechanical "bot" had classified me as a spammer. (Imagine that. ME. A spammer.) The first time it happened, neuro took it to the top and they fixed it, and then it happened again and they needed to retrain it again to know I'm just a harmless old woman without a scintilla of spam in her heart.

    I was lucky to have been still logged in on one of my devices. I didn't dare log out. How else could I reach them to let them know I can't get in? :)

    But that is EXACTLY the screen I had.

    Hi Jim! :D Glad you made it back, as I've never seen that screen but it sure doesn't look cool. I'm sure I don't know to which random hostile person you're referring, but I like to believe it was a coincidence, as that hypothetical random person I'm imagining (who has hopefully made good on a probable threat to leave, not that I can say for sure, but such people often say they're going to leave, hope springs eternal) couldn't have possibly had anything to do with it, considering whatever it was they "contributed" to the forum was (probably) poorly typed by someone who cannot properly spell, use punctuation, or come up with insults that would not make a third grader laugh hysterically due to said insults being so pathetic. Anyways, aside from just having a guess about hypothetical forum users who aren't actually users, but just some random people with severe attitude problems who make accounts just to express (with the linguistic skills of a small, not very intelligent child, probably, if I were to guess) hopefully dropping off the face of the forum, I'm glad you're back despite the freaky message, and I would like to tell any random person who gets any kind of angry with you, "Happy Tapping". :mrgreen: Too bad any Jim haters aren't going to be capable of reading this post. It might save them some trouble in the future. I'm not going to apologize for the wall-of-text post in one of your threads. I know you know how I roll. :D

    Possibly related to how quickly your posts are posting. How else would it identity a spammer?

    Maybe just go a little slower when responding as a precaution, so you don't trip up their anti spam bots.

    Ha, thanks! I am trained to post fast since I always come on after tapping. My fingers are moving a mile a minute!
    Happy tapping!
