    And I thought Doomguy was the only one who carried a BFG9000 to work

    Aaahhhhh...... DougO closed registration last night so I'll only have the stragglers to bash now. For a few days there, it was almost like work!

    I'd been testing some anti-spam stuff for the last 7+ weeks on a "live" forum, then set up a new spammers-only test forum, and did the equivalent of "beam" all except a small list of IP addresses over to the new test forum (on a different server).
    'Ship In a Bottle' from the sixth season of TNG, brilliant!

    - and more humane to the Klingons

    Too bad we can't just beam them all to a nice and cozy departing Klingon ship's engine room.

    I literally did LOL, because, now that you phrase it that way, that's exactly what I did last night...

    It felt very-very good.

    Today, it has felt like watching an ant that one has carefully (and humanely) moved. Most of them literally do not seem to realize they're somewhere else.

    Maybe smothering spammers in tribbles would be more humane than G'Kar's Wish, as applied to spammers?

    started a topic Spammers are a'coming...

    Spammers are a'coming...

    I asked DougO to open registration temporarily since there are some folks over on Facebook who are looking to join our happy band. In less than an hour I've already deleted 12 spam posts so be patient if it takes me a little bit to Ban them and delete their droppings. I'll hammer them as soon as I can.

    Meanwhile, welcome to our new REAL members!
