    Deleted and banned.

    When we go through the list to approve new users, we've been deleting about 70-80% of them as spambots. Angrysparrow just changed the human authentication questions but even those can be fooled, so sometimes one sneaks through.

    So yeah - there have been more trying to sign up recently. Guess that means we've gone big time...

    You guys didn't need to delete and ban him... all you had to do was buy him that album from Dr. Dre and I think he would have been happy

    It's probably all the threads about eating SPAM that attracts them!

    I'm scratching my head... . What on earth will they think of next? What a waste of energy! Thanks, mods, for all the work that goes on behind the scenes to make the HFs run smoothly!!!

    pretty funny sarge....

    In some mysterious way woods have never
    seemed to me to be static things.
    In physical terms, I move through them;
    yet in metaphysical ones,
    they seem to move through me. -

    That too. But as a geek I have an obligation to post XKCD comics whenever they are relevant.

    Come on sarge! I don't need to see faux meat this early in the morning...that closely!
    On the up side, I'm not that hungry anymore.
