Sorry For The Spam

More spam than normal slipped past the defence screens to be posted in the last few days. That should be over now.

We've also had some tentative reports of email spam being sent out through the forum. We're looking into this, and if you have received something spam-like from Orp, we're asking you to please let us know.

Damn. I missed the spam again? I'm beginning to think that these so-called Spam Wars and the occasional flare-up are nothing more than propaganda put out by the moderators/admins to make us think they're doing something.

The Spam Wars are real, and spam is a constant danger. The curfew is for your own protection. Return to your homes. Await further instructions. Do not go outside.

No, don't go to your homes - go to your spam bunkers! All those years you were mocked and ridiculed are finally going to pay off.

Well it looks like the email spam was a false alarm, so there is that.

He's trying to throw us off the scent! By admitting he was wrong to something that never happened in the first place, we're more likely to believe that these so-called "SPAM wars" actually happened!

I call for a vote that all of these supposed "SPAM" bots and the Admins have their IP addresses revealed to the public! Then we'll know for sure.

To be fair, I never said the Spam came from bots.

I will (for a limited time only!) reveal the Admin Trophy Room of Spam Kills. Most of those represent sucessful spammings in the past 9 months.

If only there were humans behind those e-mail addresses. Then we could turn the war around with a counter-spam offensive.

The truth however, is that all of those accounts are just Itches alternate accounts. He banned them to make them seem to be bots, so he can claim to be doing something.

We're on to you!

I even spent a few years building a reputation for laziness so as to make that level of effort seem unrealistic. I'm just that cunning.
