This site has died

The 'G-Man.'
Recently this place has gone way down hill with the volume of spam and user contributions.

What's going on?

I have noticed there are fewer interesting questions, and more 'my cell phone battery died' kind of questions.

a) depending more on freelance work, as I'm trying to save.

b) female in my life...means less time for self-involved activities.

c) work cracked down on "non-work" web browsing, and I got a "talking to" about it.

d) been sorting things at the house for a possible move by the end of the year.

I think it might be that we've all complained about the spam, and offered easy solutions to at least reduce the amount of spam, yet no one does anything about it except to delete the messages after they've been reported.

Plus since the economy went down the toilet, there are fewer people to do the same amount of work, so we may not have as much time as we used to, or the inclination to do anything even remotely tech related after we're off for the day.

I get home, and I have to work on PCs for 1-5 hours.

9-10pm rolls around, I don't have time or want to sort through things for 30-90 mins.

Guess it's cause I'm lazy too. :^0

The issue with spam, is being addressed - even if it doesn't appear to be front and center. It is happening behind the scenes.

We are still a few weeks away before these changes will see daylight - but they are coming :-)

Now let's see where I can buy me a nice pair of cheap shoes... or a nice gucci purse ;-)
