The Shoutbox
You guys are to hard on spammers. I like them, I like them a lot. We should all just get along.
Says a lot about how cool Yoda's system is when a spammer can get banned by regular members, one of which (me) is still half-cut after just waking up from a nap.
I love how the bot tells you off if you report the same post twice LMAO
Nope, they back again, Min
The Korean spammers were back. Good to see you, valiant peoples of MoFo, stopped them!

Yes I got that the first time, Master Rattus. The idea faery needs to desist telling me what and when to post, thank you very much

and some of his autocorrect is abysmal. He needs a bloody jolly good smack with the patience wand.

Yeah it's a tough thing to control without an actual ban hammer... but if 3 reports on the same person go through the system, then that account is basically halted.
Decent system Yods put in place tbh... if a spammer appears, all it takes is maybe 4 or 5 people, and the sudden influx of spammers gets stopped almost immediately.
I think it's a great system until such time as I get reported umpteen times in a row and then it seems pretty unfair until you fix the damn problem

It was March 1, 2015. Cinerama was having the Fists and Fury Festival martial arts festival. I watched all three films that played that day Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, and Harakiri.
