Just telling it like it is Bronny.
Stone Mountain's OK with IP theft, so Bill deleted his thread to protect him from looking a cunt.

Come on people, this could work! Frothers is more than just slagging off Bill. Talk us through exactly what you want us to do to make it happen Captain of Ark B.

You never know, what with all the self-isolation going on, Doc might get bored and pay this forum a visit.

So why don't we come to some sort of arrangement... a truce maybe?
I'll tidy up in the Froth pot on a regular basis, make it habitable. If folks leave it out on the tiresome anti-TMP bullying?
I'm willing to sticky the Antics thread, if someone or group of you want to bring it up-to-date, rather than useless pages of bumps...


other than that, try getting out more... there are lovely clean open fields in the CCG Forum for example, start a new thread... 0;)

I'm happy with a truce.

Seriously, can we please have an extra couple of moderators added as a precaution?

but a bit of spam ain't that.
Webmaster is Doc, with a different Log-in...
Dags is now ---, yup i think hes ashamed of the old place...
Rev was Chair but resigned, but only Doc can change the 'Roles' so remains... nominally, as in reality he doesn't...
WK is indeed a 'nice bloke', but he now has a beautiful, charming and intelligent wife, so i can't see him wanting to spend much time with you Ark B types...

The others you are missing are
UncEvl, gone to ground in Stoke...
DedDpt, owner of one of southern England's most hospitable sofas
and
Bro M. who i really hope is OK...

Associate Member was pretty much a Honorary title, and has no mod permissions...

No, it looks like you're stuck with me... :dodgy:

I think this is a wonderful idea and would cut back on the number of obsessively repetitive posters.

Where would you find the mods? I'll volunteer if need be... :twisted:

I'm willing to have a turn at being a moderator. Been a member here for 16 and a half years. :beard:

Double glazing aside it seems that not all the spammers are entirely random bots.
There are several in the Community pages who are taking the piss on topic (sort of) - following on in style on 2 or 3 year old threads see:
bennieGrara
JesseUnsam
Moosix
EmilyKeync

those aren't standard spammmer posts.

(Or if they are, they are fucking clever algorithms)
