    Spam Attack!!

    Imagine my surprise when I discover strange threads about marriages and mantras on the general writing forum!

    Does this happen often?

    It just ain't writing! :D

    I hope the mods can clean that mess up.

    They do the rounds. I don't mind them, though. They paired me up with Amira.

    I get to meet her in 2017.

    I think that particular turkey has wiggled his way onto this site before, and not all that long ago. Once the mods get to him he's toast ...again...

    However, he tends to flood the threads, so it probably takes them a while to nail him. What a doofus! o_O

    Who'd be a mod, eh?

    There's nothing that can't be deleted in the end. Yeah, the agorinath## bot sneaks in when I'm beddy-bye. I try and smash it as soon as I see it, but it's been coming on earlier and earlier. o_O

    These are organized blitz attacks, often with dozens of separate accounts created, and a real pain in the ass for the mods. I didn't see this one (great cleanup, guys!), but I'm sure there was a lot of extra time put in by our mod team to slay yet another hydra.

    It never ends. But I appreciate the effort the mods put in to keep the vermin in check.

    Nay. You wouldn't like a sleep-deprived, grumpy, fed-up mod. You'd be better off facing the Hulk in a full rage.
