LOL, Well I used to be Libertarian, (that's what I am at heart), but your right, in Florida you can't vote in any primaries, so the only way to have a vote that counts was to be an elephant or an ass.  big_smile

Or an inmate, if you heard/remember that fiasco.

(Yes, I got the joke)

Actually, Libertarian is probably what I'm closest to, but they tend to go a bit too far for me to give official support to.  Maybe I'm 2/3 Libertarian?  Hah.

Re: Reporting Spammers

Inmates get to vote legally here!  Can you believe that crap?

Re: Reporting Spammers

Sadly, yes, I believe it. 
Ex-convicts, OK.  Currently incarcerated, no.

Re: Reporting Spammers

That's pure anarchy!

Whatever anarchy means..but yeah, pure anarchy!

This is annoying, and kind of weird- a new account will show up, make some rational posts on a couple of threads, and then spam with movie download sites.  The pattern seems to be the same each time.  Always in the morning (my time).  This can't be a 'bot, unless Skynet got unleashed early, so who (and why) spends the time to do this?

It's like the goobers that post "First" in thread on YouTube and Facebook.  Who in their right ruddy mind thinks that actually makes them cool- especially when there are about 100 other posts right before it saying, "First"?

On one site that I Admin'd, there were to spam bots that posted in such a way that it seemed that they were arguing.  Was really weird to say the least... especially since they were both trying to hawk the same porn site.

I'm really glad I no longer have to worry about such things. smile

The mods do a good job of smiting the morons soon after we report them.  I know a couple of others bitch-slap these posts as fast as I do, so they never hang around long.

What's kind of amazing is places like ESPN & SI's websites get spam that will last for days, and those also have a 'report' button.  We have, what, 5 mods? 

Also, a bunch of us never sleep.

Re: Reporting Spammers

Well, I am- it's awkward running a discussion site about the paranormal, and having two bots argue about which site shows the bigger boobs. hmm

Most corporations like that still haven't realized the full potential of what social sites such as forums represent in gaining potential new consumers, and even maintaining the ones they have, so they tend not to set as high a priority on eradicating spam.  They tend not to realize how much traffic such sites can actually get at times.

I Admin'd on three, and Mod'd on about another two.  Each site had about three "staff"- usually the same three on each.  I've been quite impressed with the spam-resistant nature of this place.

Sleep?  Some of us sleep?

Re: Reporting Spammers

The weird thing is that for the past 2 weeks, the spamsters have posted 3-7 coherent posts on various topics, and then went spamalicious.  Like we'd fall for, "Oh, hey, he said some intelligent things, let's go buy rocket scooters!"  No way an AI bot could do that; some moron(s) (though the tone suggests only one) are spending a lot of time for me to spank their ass with my monkey paddles.  Repeatedly.

Don't get it.  The only other option I can think of is someone who was banned and is trying to gum up HM. In which case, I'm sending the Flying Spaghetti Monster after them.  For he has noodliness!   And I'm really tired, but I can't fall asleep.  I hate me with much passion.

Re: Reporting Spammers

Oh, a "Revenge Spammer"... those are fun. hmm  On the boards I Admin'd the Admins  could find out the ISP's of registered members, and ban their ISPs.

Trust me it's not a repeat offender wink
How's your comcast service Azzy? And how are Shaw treating you TC? wink big_smile

And the rest of us can't get cheap, unlimited internet.

That's why chanting "CANADA CANADA" doesn't have the same ring to it as "USA USA".

OK, so you checked the server logs, very good.  Comcast is good, I left 'The Tunnel' torrent seed running all night- 5.4 ratio for 15.3 GBs.  Let's see if I get a warning letter.  lol

What can I say, these guys bug me.

Re: Reporting Spammers

Just a friendly reminder to all the new members,if  a post is spam please report it.
If you're not sure if it's spam report it and the mods will sort it out.
This is a horror forum not a spam forum
Thanks from your friendly neighborhood Hellrat. smile

I saw a thread about Showers for elderly people a couple of weeks back but don't know where it went.

If you see someone who is spamming the board with nonsense posts or links for thins like shoes, coupons, CD cracks, illegal downloads...etc etc....  go ahead and report these.  Down in the bottom right hand coner of every post is a button that says "Report" and you just have to give a reason what its for.  Doing so will ensure that a Moderator see's the report and deals with the posts accordingly.

Finally, dont waste your time replying to these posters by cussing them out, calling them names, and swearing at them.  They dont read their topics after they post so is pointless and ultimately isnt worth the time you put into the post. Plus just because they are spammers doesnt mean something can be said towards them that crosses a line and offends other members on the forums. 

So bottom line, you see a spammer, hit the report button in the bottom right corner of the post and it will be dealt with accordingly.   Thats what the buttons there for and I am sure Meh appreciates everyone's help in making this a fun and spam free community.
