Holy hurricane, Batman, how the heck did I make that many posts?

by Deadly Ernest In reply to TR Community scoreboard f ...

Anyway, I must have said something someone liked to get that many votes. I got lucky with the spammers and caught a few busy ones while they were still busy.

Come on people, make some posts, I can't be spending that much more time here than the rest of you. Anyway, my back is starting to get better and I'm getting some sleep, so I should be off writing stories again soon.

Thanks for the info, Sonja.

Thank you, Sonja!

Hope everybody is gearing up for a great weekend! We actually received some
sort of liquid precipitation this past week...rumor has it that it is called "rain"!
Plus the cooler temps, all in all much needed relief. Drought conditions may
ease a bit, many of the red flag fire warnings have been canceled at least for
a time.
See everyone on the forums! :)

Still it's nice that I made the list with the one of lowest number of posts ever...

Lowest number of posts...

Now there's a mention I'd be in the running for! Most of the time I keep
quiet. Unless I'm in a humorous mood, or sometimes cantankerous!
I also try to help in the Q&A section, but many times Col beats me to
the answer on those...he uses two personalities on them and being
"down under" he's got a 12 hour or so advantage!! LOL.

The Spammers, most of the time I find that Mr Wiz beats me to them.

Not really sure what that says about the Time Difference though.

I've got a couple of other tools to use on the spammers...

besides checking in the forums here at the site, I've been using the
group that Tammikins setup, even though I'm not a big fan of Google,
it does come in handy. Since I took over some of the moderating
duties at ZDNet, I've found the Google Group and the ZDNet CMS
site indispensable in fighting the spammers.
One thing I've noticed is that with more moderators checking for
spammers, we're gradually discouraging the others from attempting
to spam the forums! I remember catching over 100 spams in a week
not too many months ago. I also see old spams every now and then
that probably reflect the relaxed attitude we once had in regards to
spammers. We probably will never be able to completely eliminate
spam and junk, but it is a relief to see a significant reduction in the
numbers of spammers!

Leave the rest of us to fight over the dregs and ABC Shopping. :^0

I actually got 17 from them the other day but that was a fluke as they tend to post late in the afternoon my time.
