As some of you can see, we've got some spam going around in different threads. I hope that this'll be taken care of soon?

Spam is a canned precooked meat product made by the Hormel Foods Corporation, first introduced in 1937. The labeled ingredients in the classic variety of Spam are chopped pork shoulder meat, with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, sugar, and sodium nitrite as a preservative. Spam's gelatinous glaze, or aspic, forms from the cooling of meat stock.

The product has become part of many jokes and urban legends about mystery meat, which has made it part of pop culture and folklore. Through a Monty Python sketch, in which Spam is portrayed as ubiquitous and inescapable, its name has come to be given to electronic spam, especially spam email.


How is that for trivia? But yeah, deal with it kids.

If you have a forum, you'll have spam; it's inevitable. All the register methods can only go so far to prevent spamming.

It will happen, the best thing is to just report it to a Moderator and let them deal with it.

I like that logic, and with seven moderators, surely this should be minimized completely right? Right?

Why make a thread about this at all? The staff will take care of it as soon as they see it, just report it and move on. Making threads about it is stupid.

Reporting and moving on is the right thing to do, but since there isn't really that much staff online anymore, I can see why Kiyomi made a thread about it. Showing concern is not stupid, especially when the forum is at a state in which we are lucky to have the mods online since of the 18 people online yesterday, none of them were staff. Let alone Kiyomi and I were one of the few actually online when Neck went on a trolling spree, which probably happened since he knew he forums were vulnerable. All we can do is report and wait, but if Plaz didn't show up, it would have been a lot more spam to clean up and deal with. <.<

Oh well, sorry. I was busy spending time not doing work to record things for your entertainment PokeSun. Sad

No, that's still not a reason to make a thread. It's a thread pointlessly complaining about spam - spam that can, and should, just be reported. By definition, this thread is useless, redundant, and therefore spam. What is even the point? It's not your job to do anything about the spam beyond just reporting it, what was making a thread supposed to achieve? Staff will notice the amount of reported posts more than a bloody thread, so just do that. Jesus.

Okay.... I apologize for making a thread, creating some sarcasm in here, and everything. I'm sorry, I won't do this again. Just thought I'd make a point.
