New permissions to avoid captcha

I have created a new group for trusted users so that if I add you to it, you no longer have to deal with the captcha. The disturbing trend is that users in India are registering on the site and posting spam comments. Since they can read English, they can get around the spam filters quite easily. The spam filters have blocked the bot spam quite well but the human spam is still there and I don't want to remove the ability to block spam for registered users. But you should not be collateral damage to the spam wars. Since I manually make you a trusted user, it may take a while to do so.

Shameless Solicitation for the Battered Woman's Shelter

A friend of mine is competing to win $500 for herself and for her favorite charity, the Battered Woman's Shelter. Here's a copy of the Email she sent me, censored for privacy.

Summit Credit Union has done a "Pay it forward" program where they gave me $10 to give back to the community. I donated it to the Madison battered women's shelter.

The winner of the video gets a change to win $500 and $500 towards their favorite United Way charity.

Update status

So, after a rough few days, most everything is back to normal for this site and the other sites attached to it. I had to move from a semi-shared host to a dedicated server and there was some confusion and miscommunication about DNS settings which made two sites run at the same time for a period of 1.5 days. I have consolidated the comments and content from the old site over here, so everything should be back.

*I thank you for your patience and it should have been smoother than what it was.*

Registration for the poker run starts a 10am with last bike in at 430. If you don't have a bike, get lunch starting at 200 and bid on the silent auction items.

Alexandra is a 14 year old that received a heart transplant last Winter. She is currently recovering from the surgery.

Unfortunately, organ transplants are very expensive, her family’s medical insurance did not cover the entire cost, and she may require another transplant.

"On the lighter side"
It seems that every post here at the swamp seems to be so serious and usually depressing as of late that I thought I would share with you this little tidbit . - KK

My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?'
I said, 'Dust.'
And then the fight started...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds..'
I bought her a scale.

Surprising today. Amazing tomorrow. It's GM

Got this e-mail today from GM. They are still working hard to change perceptions.

Dear Christopher,

Thank you for being a GM customer. There's been a lot of
discussion about the auto industry over the past few weeks,
and I want to make sure you know the facts about GM. This
is important because with all the media coverage of late
about our company and industry, it is evident that there is
much misinformation and many very dated perceptions being
