Fried Spam is awesome

yeah on another forum I help moderate I am getting between 10 and 20 'new' members a day.
Fortunately it is a pretty dead forum and I just do not approve their memberships
Over 30 years spent gaming, all sorts of systems, feel free to ask me anything, no guarantees I will have an answer.

I've been doing a lot of this as well. Since I was annointed "Deputy Marv" I've been killing 20+ threads per day, sometimes 20+ threads several times per day. Good thing I'm a teacher and unemployed in the summer.

I was cleaning up SPAM posts and saw one here, then I replied after zapping the SPAM.

He kills the spam and raises threads -- all part of some larger, uber-sinister plot, I'm sure.

It might not even be his plot, Minister of Propaganda as he is...

Ooooh. You're suggesting that I'm merely a puppet in some masterful conspiracy theory? I like the sound of that! Kind of like living a game of Paranoia!

And to make it even more sinister, the fact that I don't even know that I'm being controlled adds even more layers to the plot. Very Machiavellian.

Having discovered the truth, now you must die.

Not as satisfying as one might think, so I guess you can revive. :wink:

Sprayed the boards again this AM. Killed another 24 SPAM threads, mostly in the Art section. Something about Art seems to attract SPAMmers like moths to flame.... :P
