Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: OT - Don't feed the spammers!!!
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dick Lodge - St Louis MO on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 - 08:24 am:

There is a spam thread on the forum entitled "WTS: Brand new DJI Inspire 1, Phantom 3 Pro and Advance quadcopter." Every time someone posts to the thread along the lines of "This is spam!" it moves back up to the top of the forum. If anyone wants to vent about the spammer (until Chris removes the thread), do it here, but please don't post to the spam thread. Let's let it quietly sink out of sight....

Why ?

I don't understand the horror of spam. Is life so dull that this is
really a problem for some people ?

Burger, I see no reason for rewarding someone who pollutes our forum with unsolicited ads (for drones or anything else) by continually bringing their cr&p to the top of the forum listing. That's all....

Ah yes, that's why I'm NOT apologizing to Benny!
:-) Heh heh heh--good catch though.

Well, shouldn't someone apologize to Benny? :-)

Is that spam? I didn't understand the heading and so I skipped over it!

"Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam! I hate Spam! Its Spam for breakfast, Spam for lunch, Spam for dinner, I don't like Spam!"
I don't remember which British comic skit that was, it was a long time ago.

Yes, please don't respond to such threads. If you cannot physically flog the spammer to death? Just let the threads die the anonymous death they otherwise deserve.

Today is my birthday. I'd appreciate all forum members sending me $10.

Now, if Mr. Lodge would be so kind as to pass the hat ....

How's that for spam ? :-)

Burger, you're a piker! I have heard from a number of Nigerians who deal in a lot more than $10! :-)

You know mister BiS? If I wasn't so broke right now? I think I would send that $10 to you just for kicks.
I did have to check the link you provided to see which one it was. I have seen this one before. But it is not the one I saw so many years ago. After a previous similar thread on this forum a couple years ago, I found several other Youtube videos similar also to this one. I do wish I could find the one I saw so long ago. I can picture the person fairly well still. The piece was short and to the point, probably only about a minute.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (If it really is?) (And if it isn't really? Happy Birthday anyway!)

You never know what STD (Spammer Transmittable Disease) spammers are transmitting, too.

It really is my birthday, so to celebrate, I bought and installed a set of new spark plug wires.
I guess I bought the cheap set, because they came with no instructions and took me 5 hours
to figure out how to do them right !

Also got the horn button fixed right and working.

So, send those Hamiltons and keep this on spam-topic. Thanks ! :-)

Burger, I tried emailing you a $10 bill, but dial-up just won't allow it, so just imagine that I did!
:-)

Burger I'll be glad to send you $10.00 if you will send me $20.00 first. :-)

It is expensive......
