Natca warning

Post by JimLafferty » Sat Feb 18, 2012 10:18 pm

Just posted a message in solar chat with no attachment but now it gives me a security warning when I go to view the message. Weird.

I reposted it taking the word annular out of the topic heading and it worked fine.

Ya man, I never could figure that one out. The word annular and there was another word also, tripped some crazy warning from the massive NATCA servers. The price is right for 20 Terabytes of storage (donated for free) so I didn't complain.

No problem Stephen. I'm sure it's just part of our governments vast intelligence network. Whenever I ask my intel officer daughter about it she tells me she'd have to kill me if I found out lol.

Jim, I should set the record straight here. While I am a 29 year Military/Gub'ment employee with an eyes only+ clearance, this server is about as non gub'ment as they get. NATCA is The National Air Traffic Controllers Association-a federal sector labor union of which I am a national officer as well as a full time air traffic controller in Atlanta.
NATCA generously buys 2/3 of the 100,000 glasses per year for my program and bends over backwards to help this effort. I have basically unlimited server space and bandwidth. I think the words that trigger all these security alerts are from the hacker guard and spam guard software. Nothing to do with National Security.
The FAA is not interested in the least in my nonprofit and goes out of their way to make it more difficult for me to do it.

Could this be a CIA mis-information ploy? LOL...Just kidding. I don't need anymore visits from the company.
