View Full Version : SPAM and you vs Posting new threads: FIGHT!

There has been an increased amount of spam that has been appearing on the boards lately (specifically in the Vid and MP3 section). Do not be alarmed, there is a method behind this madness.

We have opened up the posting of new threads to all, from n00bs on up, so spam is something that we'll have to deal with. On the plus side, we hope that more people (esp n00bs and those who couldn't post new threads before) will post threads about shitty stuff that isn't spam. Then we can LOL at them. Of course there might be some gold threads out there too (I hope).

Certain members have complained about the increase in spam. To which I reply: "Cry me a fucking river, it takes clicking a button and writing the word 'spam' to report it. It helps clean up the board and makes me think that you like hanging out here, which in turn makes me like you... But not in that way, homo."

So, in conclusion, please report spam when you see it. We appreciate it.

Exactly. Bullshido gets more, but the Report button works.

For those that have it, you can also MSN me if you see me on.

Ok then. I'll just keep on keeping on.




And I wasn't really complaining. Well, maybe a little.

PizDoff means that the report button works here on Sociocide too.

Indeed.


You must spread some + Reputation around before giving it to SpringHeeledJack again.

Can we report AND make fun of the spammers at the same time?

(I figured you staff folks would see it too, so I never reported. Sorry, old CTC ways.)

It's faster when reported.
Let's get these spammers deported.

There's nothing I like more in my lonely life than to sit here, hammer the new posts button, and try to be first to report spammers.

Sadly, I'm not joking.

Absolutely! Either via posting a pithy remark in the thread or in the report itself (as long as you end up reporting the spam, that's the main thing), I know I would enjoy it!

No, it won't. All it will do is make more spam in the middle of threads.
