OMG, thank you Schnujo !!

You know what you did. *BigSmile*

You're like the fairy godmother of WdC.


For those who celebrate it, I hope you will be eating and drinking well with loved ones!
Maybe just avoid the topic of politics at dinner...

Even if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, it's a good idea to stop and think about what you're grateful for every now and then. It's so easy to take the good things in life for granted. Personally, I am thankful for the support and friends I have made here on WdC. If you happen to be a fan of mine, expect a token of my appreciation shortly. It's about time for me to give back.

If you're not a fan of mine... why not?

Happy Thanksgiving!!
Oh, hello there San Diego.

We chased the sun west, which means I got to watch the sunset from above the clouds for almost half of a 5 hour flight. And after that magical dreamscape, I was welcomed by the twinkling constellation of San Diego. Thanks for the warm welcome back, California.
Just had a tornado warning for my area that said to take shelter now.

Fortunately the storm weakened and the warning is expired now, but we're still under tornado watch and flash flood warning. Glad I decided to fly out tomorrow instead of today!

Stay safe!
Stay safe!

We're under a high winds warning, but no tornado warnings yet.
If you live in the US and you are able...


I won't tell you what to vote for, but think long and hard about who / what you support and the long term ripple effects. Think about what happened on January 6th. Think about what might happen in 2024. This is a critical election and it's going to be very close.

And, YES, your vote makes a difference.
I voted before I left, but I always vote by mail.
Does anyone know if there's a way to block an email address on WdC? I've been getting scam emails from a random AOL email address (not a WdC user) to my account here. I could just delete them, but I'd prefer to block and/or report the address so they don't send more.

*FlagR* Reminder to be careful out there!
Don't open messages that are suspicious if you don't know the sender (or even if you do).


Edit to share what I've found out:

1.) There's no way to block an email, but you can block a user if you're ever spammed or harassed by someone on WdC.
(My Account -> Account Information -> Block / Ignore Members)

2.) You can block ALL emails from non-WdC members. I recommend that everyone turn this on:
(Email tab -> options wheel -> turn on "Trash Emails NOT from @Writing.Com")

3.) I would also make sure your basic spam filtering is turned on, which I think it is by default.
(My Account -> Account Settings -> Other Options -> turn on "Basic Spam Filtering")
Check with tech support. Left-hand column, Writing.com tools, scroll down to Help Technical.
Thank you for sharing your info!
WdC has a really good spam blocking system, but I suppose things will slip through. I only use my WdC email for WdC correspondence, so if I see a non-WdC address, I know it is spam. It has happened ONCE in the nine years I've been on here.
Possibilities are few
Be anyone but you
Pretend the worst is over
Enjoy this Mocktober

Happy All Hallow's Eve to all!

Hard-fought, the dog days
A white flag gently waves
Wildfire but an ember
Eventually, they September
