Because spam attacks have been getting more sophisticated I have activated a new anti-spam service called Mollum

We shall see if it does a better job of blocking these relentless professional spam attacks.

Let us know if you have any unexpected problems with posting, we may have to work out a few bugs at first.

To reduce the spam attacks I have temporarily made the CAPTCHA a bit harder

A new bunch of professional spammers have figured out a way to buypass the spam prevention service, so I have temporarily made the catcha harder for some users.

Just as a test, I may switch it back in a few days.

If you are a regular poster, email the Webmaster at voices@voicesweb.org and I will set you uo with a special account that bypasses the captcha, so you can post with privileges.

Global warming protest outside of Republican Senator Pat Toomey's Harrisburg office.

Global Warming Protestors outside Pat Toomey's Office
35 enthusiastic protesters held signs and chanted outside Toomey's office in downtown Harrisburg on July 6, from 11:30-1:00pm.  Our activists' age ranged from 2 to 85 years.  Ed brought a van full from State College,  I brought a couple people from Philly, and activists from York and Harrisburg came as well. We had given a heads-up to Senator Casey's regional office manager, Matt Leonard. He stopped by at noon and we all praised Senator Casey for his vote against the CRA.  You can see the signs praising Casey in the attached photos, but there were lots more signs blasting Toomey.  Ed had called Toomey's office to let them know we were protesting outside their office, and why we were protesting, and invited them to come down and explain Toomey's bad votes, but no one came down. So we decided to go up to his office. Unfortunately, the building guard wouldn't let us in, but he did get Toomey's office manager, Bob deSouza, to come down at long last, where he was grilled by the group about Toomey's bad votes.
