Could you please eliminate all ludicrous postings by Cherrytreeinspring and all posts which contain html's to pharmacies and whatever? Thanks.

Here's links to some of them:

If you're talking about Stephen, Hugh, he's taking courses at the University in Kent. Taking care of his grandson, a myriad of cats, and training guide dogs for the blind. We exchange e-mails from time to time, and he's aware of the Prince William fanatic and these other spammers, but I don't think they're very high on his "to do" list.

Thanks for the announcement.


FYI, Les I appointed you moderator. Thought I would appoint first, ask if you wanted to volunteer second. The only change you should notice with your new special powers is the ability to edit, delete, move or close any thread from any of the 4 discussion boards. Oh, and your name should show up in bold now smiling smiley

That said, any other volunteers to help moderate should post here and I'll appoint you. The only advantages of being a moderator beyond your name in bold is the ability to delete spam instantly. My 9 years of experience running discussion boards over the web have taught me the only way to stop spam is to have active moderators delete the spam as soon as it is posted.

All ~30 postings from the guy in Mexico were deleted regarding the casino. Thanks for letting me know.

Tax season is almost over. Sarbanes-Oxley + Tax Season have given me a 8 months busy season. If I wasn't mentally insane before, I am certifiable now!

Actually, once I find out what a moderator is to do, I would be happy to help Stephen clean up some of the messes left by a few irresponsible posters here at e-mule.

Thanks Nolon, for agreeing. Seems everyone on the USP wants the E-mule audience without the e-mule rules. Glad to see there are some here who have had the perserverance to help make e-mule a friendly place.

As to the spammers, I think of them as graffiti artists, the faster their scribbling is erased, the better.

I agree about friendship, better than either grafittie or rules.

Seen scrawled on the eMule walls:

'Friendship rules;
rules don't win friendship.'

'hack the spammers'

'elucidate the elucidators,' 'let them loose' 'date em'

'small is for dogs,
let them each poetry'

[cross out 'small' and replace it with'spam'--'small' is my typo for 'spam']

Out of curiosity, has Stephen asked for help? I think he is doing and has done a fine job here.

Ok, I think I deleted all the spam so far. Also deleted some double postings and as Johnny requested everything written by one "les". I also took the liberty to block this sender. Kidding ;-)

Anyway, if you find any more, keep on posting here. We'll just see who's first to remove things. I agree that Stephen has done well, and is doing well. But I can imagine that he is not 24 hours on internet and the shorter the spam is online, the better for the forum.

Vacillating
One of the attractions of this board is word play, at times they are absolutely delicious, but if the mind is locked in a topic specific mold they can be distracting.

One can argue that any censorship has an element of bite, but groups and individuals cannot function without rules. Consequently, if the majority finds post of a particular type offensive, that post should be removed.
Censorship by a group, where the unwanted material is discussed, where the intent is known is censorship of function and purpose.
However:
Cherry Tree is not going to head any ideological group.
When her post appeared, the reader mind stopped-asking, “What is this?”
Later, it occurred to me that Cherry’s posts may have been absurdity aimed at word players in general; a studied read of her post concluded that this person is, ‘sucking on the jug or drugs.’
How ‘cute’ it would have been, if a party had posted: “Cherry Tree, click here, xxx.@ crazed rants, but, that idea only comes now, not THEN.
I want to vote twice, fifty percent for form and purpose and fifty percent for the post by JohnnySansCulo.
CherryTree has a place, I’m not sure where it is: sadly neither does she.

Ah, Mr. Charlie Chan, we need to consult you on one know to us only as Cherry Tree in Spring, we require you to determine if Cherry Tree in Spring is a cryptogram, referring to flights of lunacy occurring in your neighboring country of Japan, when Cherry Trees blossom? We occidentals have been told the blossoming of such trees drives some to peculiar behaviors.
Are the messages inscrutability due to the Cherry Blossoms of Spring, or is there a greater conundrum we occidentals cannot grasp?

p.s. One good thing about this system is that ALL posts are dated and time stamped. So we can get a pretty good profile of the spammer. I will have some information about our suspects very soon. Also the date stamp allows us to check just the posts for that particular day without having to hunt for errant posts.

True, you're probably correct to post them, Linda. Though I do try to get to them, our spammer is probably east coast U.S.A. , since most of the posts come between 9-10 am Atlanta time, or 10-12 pm New York time.
