The <off topic> thread

Recommended Posts

who'd thunk it? Myrddin said Blimey!

on the first page of off-topic too ;)

I wish I could start a new thread that has 1000+ pages, that would be amazing :D

If you calculate the 1468 pages of posts and base it off of the 16 posts per page (averaged off of first page), that would make an approximate 23,488 posts :shock:

I dnno, maybe we'll get used to random image code representing our emotions instead of smilies, then when they return we'll be really confused... probably not though

I'm totally mished! my little smilies are not working and my pictures either. What really is with spammers anyhow. For once I'm glad I slept in, I'm usually one of late night early morning on the board people, and I'd have received the full brunt of that mess.

Maybe today would be a real good day for all of us to do some computor virus scanning and general cleanup of our systems. I know mines good and clean I virsus scann constantly but I sure want to make sure I don't accidently download something from this board.

If it keeps up I think I just might retire from the forum completely. Will have to think about that and see what solutions our mods and Rick come up with.

you would get along I'm sure. I haven't left yet I'm just thinking about it due to the spam amounts lately. I'm waiting to see what comes about as a solution. Its discouraging every day I log on and report spam. I'm usually here when everyone is sleeping so see some stupid items. but I sure am glad I didn't have to look at any vulgar images that must have been revolting. and I feel for the mods and Rick. It is not a very mature thing spammers are doing, and truly I just fail to see why people spam.

That's one of life's great mysteries.

I'm guessing they're first directing traffic to their site and then using that traffic to sell the domain.

I love Forumer. :roll:

ooh inline thumbnails are allowed again :)

Hmmm, I'm gone for a few days in D.C and the first thing I see when I get back is the repercussions from a spam attack. Was the attack as bad as the last one two years ago (I remember witnessing the repercussions of that one too)? Or was it just a slow one?

It's not necessarily over. We don't have a better spam prevention system in place, just a stop gap. Which evil do you prefer: no image linking, or no new users? For now, I'm going with the latter since it'll give us some time to catch our breath while letting everyone else continue to use the board "normally".
