To believe in something just because you're afraid of the consequences if you don't believe in something is no reason to believe in something.

Somehow I approved a bunch of posts I wanted to disapprove, but I went back and took care of that. Sorry about that.

There's a breach in the wall, Cap'n! I didn't approve either of those threads, so I don't know how they got live. Anyhow, I banned the spammers. These days I just delete spam threads awaiting approval rather than ban their creators.

f*ck it, this is a job for nall and the other admins. It's obvious that captchas don't work, and I'm in no position to do anything about that.

PM nall about it. I'm done sweeping up in here, only to see more spam blow in. Nall has the power to change board settings so that spam is automatically deleted upon arrival. But then, this board's software is six years old now, and new, more effective forum software is out. The admins should look into getting it.

The spam here is really beginning to get out of hand, maybe it's time to consider switching to a new kind of forum software. I guess one thing we can conclude is that this spam seems to be coming from the same source, considering 60-75% of it seems to be about crap related to Uggs.

What do you think, Will? Spam?

I don't think this is a legit University study. Sounds like someone just wants our personal info, including our email, by asking us to fill out a form to see if we "qualify" for the "study."

And the poster's name is suspicious: "MMSurvey." And only one post :roll:

Look at this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=92837

Then look at my response in the thread. Spam? You call it either way, Will. Thanks!
