Members Please Check Your Profiles

Postby Gregory Wonderwheel on Thu Nov 19, 2009 3:06 am

Hi Everyone,

It has recently come to my attention that many, if not most, of our members are ignoring the profile question asking you if you are a spammer. So..... most of our members have left the answer on the default response of "yes" making it look like you are all claiming to be spammers. :lol2:

Please take a few moments to check your profiles and answer the question "no" if you are not a spammer.

Thanks,

Gregory Wonderwheel

I don't think we were ignoring it, we just didn't read the fine print. :)

antispam?

That sounds good, i don't want spam. So I said Yes.

Reading on: We do not allow spammers. Please indicate if you are a spammer or bot. (Answer No if you are not)

Oh, the item antispam doesn't stop me from getting spam, it means "Are you a robot spammer?" That's different...

antispam: No

Go to the User Control Panel area, look down for the "Profile" area button, second in the listing of five areas you can go to....

Overview : Profile : Board preferences : Private messages : Usergroups : Friends & Foes

Push Profile, then its the very bottom item..

antispam: No

It's nice to know that the moderators aren't spammers, though. :tee:

I guess misdiagnoses like this one tend to be unavoidable when every member and his brother also has moderator privileges. :PP:

In the army and elsewhere, there used to be something called a loyalty oath. What it boiled down to was signing a paper saying you were not a communist ... the enemy du jour in that day and age.

The obvious question was, wouldn't a card-carrying communist sign such a paper without any problem whatsoever? Likewise, wouldn't any self-respecting spammer be willing to sign a loyalty oath asserting s/he was not a spammer?

From this we may know that only the virtuous and conscientious go to the hell of actually considering the question. :)

I think the purpose of the question is to screen out spam bots, not sentient beings. :PP:

Given that the question isn't being asked of the spam bots, how's it working so far? :lol2:

On edit: Reconsidering the situation, I'd say that the onus is being put on the "sentient beings" to prove they ain't spammers. If so, that's a sad statement of where we've gotten to as an online community.

I'm not sure I could sign anybody's loyalty oath, Adam. :roll:

Much better lately, I would say. Thanks of course to the fine efforts of our mods. :)X

Oh, that's a small glitch. :lol2: Nothing that can't be corrected now that it has been discovered. I have faith. :p:
