Run amok, they have

These spammers.

I can only hope that our TR wizards are using this latest onslaught -- this coming out into the clearing -- to more perfectly calibrate windage, elevation, and other attributes to deadly effect.

Of course, the wizards may also have thrown up their hands; gone home in the face of a New Normal. I know I'm about ready to.

First thing we do

by santeewelding In reply to Revolt

Is, we herd the PTBs to the fo'c'sle...

That will be your job.

Sounds about as easy as herding cats!

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to First thing we do

Maybe the PTBs will take notice of the increase in email notifications
in their Inbox, I know I would. I too received a bounce message on
a spam notice, to Mark Kaelin. I'm trying to remain positive, and
hopefully we will not have to storm the weapons locker and force
them to walk the plank...ARRRRR! However I refuse to remain on
deck playing "Nearer My God to Thee" as the sound of waves grows
louder and closer.

Don't confuse grunts with brass...

You can be pretty certain that the PTBs are among the ones not receiving Spam notices. The others are cannon fodder.

Now, what would Egon Olsen do... something about a crate of cheap beer, two dozen eggs, a set of tin soldiers, three elderly ladies and a whole lot of carbon paper...

But how'd Mark Kaelin get to the top 3?
I don't recall him posting much more than the starter message of blogs... with a few exceptions when he's the author of the blog.
Oh wait, he's not anymore... Palmetto is down to 3rd, and the damned yarinsiz is #2.

Well this "Wizard" is getting about fed up with them!

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to Run amok, they have

Yes, it's very simple to spot the spam posts...some even brown-nose the author
of the blog post "Thanks for this information, I'll visit all you blogs (insert links here)".
I don't know if any of the PTBs at TR read these WC discussions, BUT, at least
for the time being, maybe just turning off HTML and BBCode would help? Yes,
those of us that use legitimate links to URLs would find it cumbersome, but I'd much
rather "cut 'n paste" a link to some information than have to drill down through the
spam posts. The other thing I've noticed is the spammers are taking over the Top 100,
sheesh, nothing is sacred!

It's getting even better now

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Run amok, they have

I've had several posts just disappear over the past few days. 1 new discussion has disappeared within 5 minutes and I'm beginning to think that I've been listed for removal because I've been Flagging Spam. :^0

Interesting concept I fill up the In Boxes of the PTB and as a reward I get my posts deleted as I'm abusing the system.

I looked through the TR Alerts this morning and found about 3 of the 100+ that I received that where not spam.

So no new discussions and very few new questions, the TR Site is so busy that it's impossible to keep up with what's happening.

Stay clear

of the air lock doors.

Speaking of doors

by santeewelding In reply to It's getting even better ...

They are left wide open. Now it's the "grout stain guy" horning in.

Update: he's doubling down. Now, it's the "grout colorant guy".

Best be careful what you say to HAL Santee

by OH Smeg In reply to Speaking of doors

I'm under the understanding that it likes to open both Air Lock Doors 1/32 if an inch and watch the people close by get sucked through.

Apparently HAL claims to like the sound of Breaking Skulls as they get sucked through the opening. Though looking at HAL's Video Archive it's also has Full Videos of every person that has been sucked through any Air Lock in Discovery and it plays them over and over laughing.

What about the time He played cat and mouse with that one guy...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Best be careful what you ...

Opening the furthest airlock, seeing the guy propelled towards it and closing it just before that guy'd have gone through it.
What, 41 times, or so.
The time after that the door stayed open... "42's the charm" said He.

Check out the Newest tab on the Blogs page...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to It's getting even better ...

Lots of blogs with zero comments... should we try and push the spam off the front page list?
Assignment for this week : Pick a new blog-entry, write a reply.
Let's push the zombies off the Discussions list, at least when sorted by date.
