Logging on to read JB threads

I have to log on to read JB threads

First World Problem(tm) I know, but it's still a PitA - any chance that barrier could be removed?

Welcome to the club.
Some of us 25 year veterans have the same problems after we got banned by some sensitive little moderator we had to start over again with a new identity.

You have no restrictions attached to your username, I'm not sure I understand your problem?

Same for you, there are no restrictions on this Username. If you were Access Masked in a previous life and want it sorted then please sent me a PM with details and I'll try to sort it out 👍

Oddly I've had the same issue for years - I thought it was just the owners wanted to shield sensitive young minds from the Wild West of Jet Blast if they were innocently passing by.

In my case don't bother to change it

As with the others, there are no restrictions on your access with this username.

Have the same issue. Sometimes I'd love to have a short look on the go without the usual device and without wanting to log in from it.

Yes, I think it's an IB policy thing (seen it elsewhere).

Senior Pilot explained this before. Log in before being able to see Jet Blast?

Yes: Internet Brands have let us know that they require all off-topic forums to be restricted to logged in registered members only. The reason is to stop Google crawler bots from reading it and dinging us: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/...o-know/462610/

Sorry but IB failed to advise our Mod group until a couple of hours ago, otherwise we would have let you know sooner. Regardless, it won’t affect your ability to visit JB, etc, as registered members.

Thanks for the reminder SLXOwft, I knew that info was in here somewhere!

I've added this to a sticky at the top of this forum, where people may see it before posting. Well, we live in hope.

We get dinged by Google for having a publicly-accessible off-topic section, so this way we keep it relatively open and don't take a traffic hit.
