Yes, it's rather extracting the urine isn't it? Hopefully our mods will delete the bugger before the Dolly Sisters take action :wink:

Posts removed (except the initial cover one as that was benign and indeed has started its own discussion) and the account banned.

It was one we weren't sure about, so gave the benefit of the doubt.
Grumpy old mod.

We block and bin somewhere between 6-12 spam accounts each day on average (although on bad days we can have anything up to 40-50).

The set-up isn't too bad, although there are one or two weak spots we need to adjust (based on the PM spam we had a few days ago) but that's hopefully in progress.

All in all it could be a damn sight worse, as the LSpace wiki incident is an indicator.

Well done that mod! :thumbl: We can't have riff-raff wandering in and dropping internet litter all over the Forum, Commander Vimes would go spare . . .

This came up on my FB feed and given the website, it doesn't look like it's official sanctioned. Can someone pass on to the Mr Slants?

Judging by her Twitter feed, Rhianna is on it . . . with a flamethrower! :thumbl:
I've got a blowtorch, some seriously heavy crowbars and would be happy to lend a hand . . . or remove someone else's should the need arise . . .

@rhipratchett

If you immortalise my father's death and try to sell it on a T-shirt you better believe I'm coming with the flamethrowers.
