Stranger still . The Frothpot has had eight messages so far today .

That's postings not pages of postings .

Hast thou vision of the Blessed Doc truly wrought a miracle ?

Have you got a temperature?
Been coughing?
Seeing things?

Well one of three at least,
Lie down, take something mind altering and don't go anywhere for two weeks.
If you continue to see 'Doc', perhaps ring a hospital and see if there is any hope for you.
:D

I'd like to see the place cleaned up and see if the posts on non TMP related threads pick up again, I suspect most people have been scared off by the spam and aren't here to join the truce and won't come back until they see some improvement.

Can't you clean the Frothpot up to see if they come back Captain of Ark B.?

After a while once people see Frothers is up and operating again as something other than a spam garbage tip we might attract new non-TMP posts.
You're probably going to have to make a leap of faith if you really want change though Captain of Ark B., If the place is a toilet you can't really complain if everything put in it is shit.

Surely that's got to be something we can all get behind and it would definitely attract new members.

The hate would only augment Darth Mac's ego...

There aren't that many participants left:

1) A few vocal twats have had a tendency to drive people away, due to the Froth Pot. Newbies ignore the warnings and post there, as it's the most active part of the forum.

2) The ability to vote anonymously is going to skew the results in favor of the minority - is the minority the majority now?

3) The regulars see the Froth Pot as a means of venting, especially by jilted exes about that other place, and can't stop themselves.

At this point, better to keep the spam off the rest of Frothers and ignore the Froth Pot.
