    Urgent

    OK so I tried warning the masses about the crap around here. Now almost all spam will be deleted and infractions given out 30 min after the time of this post. I figure a half hour is enough time for people to read it. Apparently we need a crackdown because it has become rampant. This is the only warning you will get so please pay attention, Thanks

    Unfortunately this seems to have spiralled down lately into random posting from small cliques of users. As you may have noticed alot of users are currently sporting disabled privileges, this is because they did not heed the warning that hostile posting infractions would be handed out. If users persist then they can be put into moderation, i.e. every posts is checked by a moderator before it is allowed to be posted, and then of course ultimately there is banning.
    I think the core of the matter is not the spam, this section of the board was always a spam haven but much of it was humor, now it has descended into open hostility between different groups of users and serves no useful purpose. It is this negativity which has grown lately which is detrimental to the board , but it is not this forum that needs to change but rather the attitude of some of it's members.


    Seriously though I just read this and to be clear its the useless shit that will be frowned upon. If its funny or good natured that's fine, but completely useless and mean spirited has got to be cleansed starting tonight.

    Most of the spam is people trying to be funny by posting image macros everyone's seen a thousand times. Guess that only annoys me. I'm glad there's going to be stricter moderation of spam posts.
