New BB of BB Registrations

Post by Sloth » Wed Nov 29, 2006 10:29 pm

Sorry guys, but when I got back from my trip from the USA it seems like the board was overrun with spambots.

So all new registrations have to go through me personally.

All you have to do is prove you are not a fucking spambot.

Thanks,

xoxo Sloth

There that got 'em.

Marky, I have a few new tricks to keep the spammers out while letting newbies in. Wanna help me moderate the spambots? All you have to do is delete the obvious spam. I would get Mc to help but he is technically challenged.

I admit I need some help while I test new shit out.

I'm always up for that kind of stuff, Sloth. At your service! If you tell me how to delete them I will do so. Right now I wouldn't have a clue except that I figured out I do have the ability to delete other people's posts on the Marky Music forum (and almost did once, but see how nice I am?)

I'm also pleased to report that a new company has made wireless internet access available in Seattle as of November and I've checked it out carefully and I'm really happy about this. I am finally ready to move to something speedier than dial up. With Comcast, I'd have to get cable TV and I don't want that. With Earthlink they make you pay ridiculous fees just to cancel the service, which really scared me. Qwest still don't offer DSL in my area. So I am going with the renegade new company offering WiMax (a whole new technology than these other carriers are using) and from what I've read I don't feel I have anything to fear. The time has come.

agh... I used to work for ComCast. Maybe it's better there but they have the shittiest customer sevice here: Afterall, I was it and basically my job was to try some stuff on the phone and ultimately make sure you get charged $50 for someone to come out to the house and check it there.

Marky no cable? Not even the nudie channel?

I work for the largest cable company in Scandinavia. They own like 40 channels, 10 radio stations, and have 7 million dish subscribers. They are RAKING IT IN and known for underpaying their employees.

People are transmuting into sheep really. We are going to start baa-ing soon and then maybe Jesus will be happy and come back and fuck our asses.

Bahahaha! That is funny because I had a similar weird and humourous exchange of words regarding Jesus and religion with a few people tonight. Which I won't repeat here. Or maybe I will...but there was drug references so I'll keep quiet for now. I'm too paranoid. I'll tell you later in private. All of you. Individually. Bah, the whole comedy is ruined now.

Well Sloth I reckon "the nudie channel" means full on quadruple X material over in Sweden, but here it just makes me think of the Playboy Channel and Playboy isn't worth anything these days in my book. I dunno. Maybe I'm just naive. Do they really show full on sex on cable now?

I think my potatoes are getting overcooked. I must go now.

Also Pixie that was part of my motivation as well: Comcast as a monolithic corporation not worthy of me.

Also I think a few people here may be interested to know that Kincora's, Cha Cha et al are about to be torn down soon for generic condos. It is a certainty. I better take my camera down there fast.

Sorry I know that was sortof off topic isn't it? I've learnt the hard way that some people go absolutely ballistic if I get off topic, even briefly and politely.

What was the topic again? Spambots, that's what. Send me the instructions, Sloth, I'm ready to test the specimen.

the best porn is on cinemax at like after 10-11pm; At least that's what my little brother is broadcasting all the fucking time on myspace. Argh.

and comcast is the devil: but they paid a nice $13.50 an hour.... that was cool with me since all I did was sit on my ass and answer the phone; and usually hang up on people. I mean afterall, it's not like I'm getting paid by how many people I actually help in a day ...
(Yes I know I'm a bad worker...)
