from the real wee dott thread, spammer guest wrote:
" i can say what i want and do what i want and i wont even get the blame. that's why my friends and me are going to be here a lot."

this is the story. the spammer(s) is/are trying to force the issue. it's politics.

wonder who it could be?

probably doesn't take a genius. duh!

Look I know I'm a bit thick, but what exactly do you want?

What are the "issues"? What's yer "politics"? What's Danny Wylie got to do with anything?

Humour me, come on, tell me what's this important point your trying to get across? Cos it's flown way over ma baldy heid, son.

it would be good if we were all linked up to our computers with wee wires attached to crocodile clips which you attached to your genitals.. and if someone upset you..well.. you just pressed 'ctrl enter' and gave them an electric shock. this would be a good method of ensuring politeness and ensuring folk behaved as though we were knitted... I'm sure this could be done on PHP message boards.. surley norman can figure out a way of implementing this.

like TFC said before. IP address has been recorded and it's enough to specify who was it. of course internet provider can't tell it for us, but they can have a word for that person and sometimes stop the connection. and Norm can easily prohibit accrees from that IP. so this won't be long. at least that is what happens in Japanese BBS.

It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, Norm will do to get shot of this shitty little spammer, as it flies against his belief for an open forum. Mmm. Conumdrum??
