Should I get into full protective clothing, or will my Heath and Safety official clipboard and pen save me? :D

And of course the railways are safe! It's only taken us 180 years to get to this level.

Aw hell, you can salute the WHOLE deck if it pleases you.
And ... I probably just made a total idiot of myself with that. Oh well, as those who know me can attest, it's a feeling I'm quite familiar with...

Welcome aboard, Donald.
Tough question on saluting in this forum; both the Cmdr and CaptainB need to field that question.
There is a classic contrast between ideal protocol and reality; in reality one ends up saluting [literally] anything that moves. Saluting nuances are truncated during underway transfers.
The crew is good at heart. I'll leave you now so you can get acqainted will fellow crew mates.

Nice phrase *Power is Nothing without control. That's why I'm not allowed either!* I've been there, done that, quite the experiences in responsibility without authority.
The experiences mirror a line from the Charge of the Light Brigade: it is not our duty to reason why but do or die.

For the Record, Donald both owns and deserves full credit for 'Power is Nothing without control. That's why I'm not allowed either!'

I do second Borgcrazy's observations on assignment of responsibility politics when something goes wrong

The spammers seems to have stepped up their attacks a bit over the last couple of days. If you haven't noticed, good. That means that we're deleting their posts in time. Thank you to everyone who has alerted me when the spammer's crap shows up. I check the forums a few times a day and try to weed out the obvious spam registrations. Google is my friend for that job. But please keep those alerts coming.

Now there is one easy way around this. I could make it so (see what I did there) I have to approve all registrations. I don't want to do that on the off chance that someone actually wants to join and add to the admittedly-light conversations here. Delaying those potential real members until I can approve them may cause them not to bother to post at all. So, unless the spam tide turns into a tsunami, I intend to keep up the fight.
