Out of the Blue

More hard work by Frans today resulted in some further improvements around here, and some account cleanup on the forums, where a handful of spam posts had shown up. These were pruned as were their accounts, along with a staggering 20,000-some accounts registered by spam bots that hadn't managed to make any posts. Prevention being the best cure, the tireless Frans then implemented a Captcha system to thwart such automated sign-ups. No word on any internet pharmacies or ED drug manufacturers have gone out of business as a result.

The cause of all these evils was the lust for power arising from greed and ambition; and from these passions proceeded the violence of parties once engaged in contention.

Back! Next time /msg or something...

I understand you're jealous of my post count. It's understandable, what with your measly 4700 posts, a little over a quarter of what I've done.

It's quality, not quantity that matters

Too bad you dont prune the trolls.

Who says we didn't?


Yeah the air has definitely gotten quite a bit cleaner around here. Too bad that the prime troll has already changed his name and is now posting semi-normal posts for a few days before his retarded half of his brain takes over and starts messing shit up again.

I really hope you'll kill him a lot sooner this time. It was really getting ridiculous.

I have this to say about the contents of the imported EE version - FUCKING WOW! I am happy to support them by buying my second copy of the game. They deserve every penny.

Hey Blue ya might want to check a poster name GunSpeed seems he's running a ads.doubleclick pic in his posts.

That was a weird one... his posts looked legit, but there was that ad. Someone asked him about it and he claimed it may have been from testing a .sig, but he didn't have a .sig, so it looks like he was inserting it manually. That is while he still had an account.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
