I've been a paying member on BB for many years. I'm in the younger end of the baby boomer generation( B.1960) I love the Mystery Photo game for lack of a better word. I have to say that IMO the BB Admin is out of touch with today's tech culture. Web sleuthing is in the fabric of the 21st century and I see nothing wrong with it being a tool in trying to identify the mystery photo. I left my beloved Bronx at the young age of 13 as my world was beginning to expand in the challenging era of adolescence. My parents in their loving being of parenthood wanted to move out of the changing environment of our neighborhood. My recollections of University Heights was there was no other place to live. Of course that was far from the truth. My Bronx world as I remember it consisted of, but not limited to, my neighborhood,Fordham Road, St. Lucy's grotto,The Bronx Zoo, City Island and Orchard Beach, etc. Many of the mystery photos through the years have been a total mystery to me save of a few. I love guessing and trying to identify every single one of them. I feel there is nothing wrong with web sleuthing. I've been rebuked from doing this several times so out of respect I would never reveal the findings from web sleuthing. I just want to air my grievances on this rule being that the admin has taken the fun out of web sleuthing. I don't know if anyone else share my views. If so I'd hope that maybe a new section for web sleuthing would be implemented. Happy Passover to all my Jewish Bronxites.
