Perhaps an occasional spammer is a moderately good thing in these parts of the web...
Brought some activity :)

And on that note, perhaps we should install a little friendly competition with our mods to see who can catch the most spammers most quickly!... And Alvarin has scored the first point! @Death 999, you'd better step up your game buddy! :P

That would have been a really unhealthy competition... With this spammer being a sole registrant in a month or so a potential welcoming, or even solicitation of spam sources could arise. Alternatively, existing users could become ban targets for contrived reasons.
Also, need to see if a mod could ban a mod... For technical victory due to a lack of active opponents. Hmm...

(I realize the suggestion was made in jest)

We do not realize your intention toban other mods as a jest. More as pushing the boundaries of the rules for a permanent advantage over any opponents.


;)

But I agree, such a competetion would make only sense, if all mods play fair and keep doing the same quality of great work they've been doing the past years.
(Thanks!)

I've been alternating crazy busy at work, and taking care of the family. And the kids have mostly abandoned playing the game - but this week I might get them back on it. We'll se.
