In light of recent events I've changed some settings on this board to prevent people spamming the place to hell.

You can now only post every 20 seconds. This shouldn't cause any problems for anyone but the function was originally disabled because one poster was having difficulty. PM me if you have any problems.

I've also set the number of posts you have to make before you can get a custom title down to 100. Hopefully this will get rid of some of the inspiration to spam.

Okay, people have got annoyed over the last few days, those responsible for spamming should just post a little 'sorry' thread and we'll all move on and forget about it.

Sounds good? Let's keep this place fun.

It's a good move... but 20 seconds is very short. I dun think it'll be too much of a restriction.

My electric toothbrush, Hieronymous, has a superiority complex. He thinks that he is so much better than me. We often get into arguments over which one of us is cooler, and he always wins. It is very disappointing when your toothbrush beats you in a debate. But that's ok because next time I'm going to be ready for him and I'm going to say "Yeah your name might be Hieronymous and that's really cool and stuff but I can do this!" and then I'm going to brush my teeth with him, because everyone knows that brushing your teeth with your enemy is the highest insult around because you can't be very cool if somebody's using you to clean their teeth. But then hieronymous said "Hey I don't have to take that from a dork like you!" then picked me up and decided that I would be a good substitute for dental floss which was very degrading.

Generally it's a post with no content. We all do it now and then, for example we found something funny and so we just post 'hehe' or soemthing like that, that's not really a problem since you're expressing appreciation for something someone else has said, it's when people are in competition to get the highest number of posts by just randomly adding zero-content to the boards that it annoys people.

20 seconds is a tester period. Hopefully it should make spamming to boring to bother with, although I never really saw the point much in the first place...
