Just a note that archive.org is down for maintenance after having some sort of problem so some of our photos won't work until their issues are resolved.
The irony is we usually archive our photos so they won't expire as too often picture link urls expire. This is an example when it doesn't work out the other way, but overall I think it's better to save/archive photos rather than rely on them not expiring.
Hopefully archive.org will work out their kinks soon.
For those wondering why I've been adding cases at a more frequent pace lately. There are 2 reasons.
1) I noticed we were close to 9,000 threads so I want to speed up getting to the milestone of being only 1,000 threads away from #10,000 (I'll slow down after 9,000 but then likely speed up again once we get close to 10,000). Hey at least I admit it lol.
2) To make up for lost time. I was given a busier work shift for a large chunk of the year where I only posted one or two cases a day or often not at all and then I had a much needed vacation. So it's also about making up for lost time in getting our threads up for the way too many people who need help as well.
Another minor reason is In Pursuit with John Walsh's Facebook page is now posting cases besides fugitive cases daily as well, which is a good thing even if it means more work for the forum.

Just a note guys forum rules have been changed a bit on the hushmail form- this is on a trial basis in case it turns into an issue or anyone complains- but for now a valid e-mail address is now required to e-mail us. The system is now set-up so anyone who doesn't put a real or puts a fake e-mail has their e-mail automatically blocked/sent to the trash where it isn't read.
The form is supposed to be for news updates where there's no need to be anonymous anyway, but I still promise to not give away anyone's e-mail address if they choose to send an unsolicited tip instead of just a news update and don't want me to.
And just for the record, the main reason for this is a lady who e-mails me daily random rantings about how she knows where Michele Comstock is and she hangs out and runs a sex trafficking ring with Jason Derek Brown and the actual Green River Killer while John Walsh is tied up at Comstock's horse ranch etc... (which we know especially isn't true since the location this lady is in is the U.S. when Comstock is almost likely in Mexico if still alive based on what we've read from a bounty hunter's FB). I realize I said keep e-mails secret but the lady is a nutjob and I feel ok to share what are definitely illegitimate tips.
I'm trying to cut down on e-mails like that so the inbox is only legitimate people who want to contact us.
