How about "selfish and thoughtless spammers" rather than "scum of the earth spammers".

"Scum of the earth" sounds like an expression the Nazis might have used about the Jews.

...... if it wasn't for the fact that yesterday they filled about three screens and made it impossible to see the real threads.

But, yeah, the content is kind of entertaining, in a Pythonesque way.

Yeah, sorry about that, but sometimes I have to eat, sleep, talk to my wife and children, work, do stuff I really enjoy...you know, the usual stuff.

Apart from the sleeping, you should be able to it all at the same time, surely?

I was actually amazed at how close together their threads are in time.... some were 30s or so apart; they must have pretty nimble fingers.

Scuba and simultaneous talking/eating is not a skill I've cracked yet, and not one I plan on working at.

Yes, if only someone could design a way to throttle high posting rates. {sigh}

However I am not happy with the title of this thread.

It sounds to me like a dangerous level of intolerance that is inappropriate anywhere, and especially on a forum about an Open Source product.

Sounds fine to me.  100% descriptive and accurate as far as I can tell.

Especially when they call me up from "Microsoft" about the viruses they have found on my (Linux) computer.

Maybe it's time the forum became somewhat self regulating...

If 3 or more (different ip's) hit the 'report spam' button the post goes straight to a catchment area to be analyzed.

That sound like it would work. Am I missing something?

So did I. At least it is readable smiley

It doesn't change my mind about the unpleasant wording of the title of this thread. smiley-sad

And there is a convenient "remove" button.
