Attention newly registered users:
After you create an account you will receive an automated email message indicating that your account is inactive pending approval by an Administrator. This doesn't mean that I am picking and choosing who can enter the bar. It used to automatically activate your ID but I switched it because we kept getting hacked and none of us wants a bunch of SPAM.
Recognize that this site is something I set up as a hobby. I don't work here and I don't work for you.
So if I happen to be busy with my job, my side business, my kids, etc. (or maybe I am just goofing off and enjoying the beach, a beer, a nap, whatever) and I haven't gotten around to approving your account don't take it personally. Feel free to send me a reminder.
But don't send me coo coo rants and accusations like the one I got today (see below) from a new user whose identity I will protect out of courtesy.
Is there only one admin on this blog?? i sent my request in 36 hours ago and the only response i get is "welcome!! oh, but you are inactive, pending approval from the Engineer of the 'screw whoever doesn't agree with me' train??" what the hell takes so long?? What is the basis for this "approval"? I am a 31 year old woman, who (and i know you hate this) has lived in both north and south walton for a substantial part of my life and would like to express my opinion. Open the damn thing up to guests to post. If you aren't going to require people use their real names, then WTF is the difference? If this is supposed to be an "open" forum, dedicated to bringing "honesty" and "integrity" to Walton county and it's elected officials, then i would hope that each of you received a dictionary for Christmas this year; clearly the meanings of these, and i am sure a plethora of other words, alludes you. Over my lifetime, I have grown increasingly tired of listening to the glorified tourists (aka transplants) b*tch and moan about shit constantly. There is a reason it's called tourist season; at the end, you are supposed to leave, only to return next year. If it is soooo awful here, then saddle up whichever relative you rode in on and move your ass back to your incestuous, land-locked, mid-western, armpit-of-America towns. You CHOSE to be here. We didn't go to whatever piss poor area of the country you are from and drag you here kicking and screaming. Most of us have enough drama, what with being related to EVERYBODY in the county, without a bunch know-it-all douchebags stirring the pot. If you are waiting on the day that you don't run into a person proud to be "Walton County 3rd-generation born and bred" you better pack you a pic-a-nic basket booboo and sit a spell. This is gonna take a while. I am proud to be from this county. Shit, I am proud to be from DeFuniak. I didn't have to move halfway across the country to find my paradise. I was lucky enough to be born here and smart enough to realize that it is indeed a paradise.
And for people like you and your drunken little baseball team of bullies to think that you in any way should have the right to say the things you are saying about MY county or to personally attack the people who were chosen to run it, makes me livid. I truly hope that for the rest of their lives YOUR father/mother/daughter/son/bf/gf/lover/etc don't step out of line and have the likes of you around to make sure they are acutely aware of it every singe day. People like y'all are the worst kind of evil, because you are either too stupid to realize you are wrong or you are truly soulless. Neither of these are qualities i find useful in a person. Incredible that as i go down 30A, after a lifetime of that gorgeous view, i see only that; THE VIEW. You people see nothing; too busy trying to figure out who to f*** with next. PLEASE don't approve me for your worthless rag of a forum. i don't have time for bull shit.
