Add one pill per tank, along with seven drops of MMO. If suicidal thoughts or actions persist, stop talking Phlim-u-phlam and call your doctor right away.}}

Interesting. A lot of those meds are no longer on the american market. Doubt they are available in Greenland either.

I read some of that stuff and it baffles me to no end that folks out there in spam land think folks are foolish enough to meet face to face to pay 15,000 dollars cash for 100,000 dollars fake money. And the drugs they are "selling". Some of those pills should not even be available by prescription,much less on the web like toilet paper. Perhaps it would be good to leave those threads and let the feds read them?

I rarely comment on O.T. threads, but I really feel that I should comment on this one as I don't want to comment on the actual thread so as to bring it back to the top.
I really don't care where they're at, be it Greenland, Iceland, or Shiteland, I really think that any "Adam Henry" (police code, use the first letters of each word) that would be stupid enough to actually advertise counterfeit currency for ANY COUNTRY, should be turned over to Interpol. Dig me daddy?

Chris B, other moderators, et al,
Some of this bc (bull er, stuff) is beyond mildly annoying, however it, sadly, is a sign of our times. I imagine it will be dealt with in some reasonable way. For that, thank you Chris and others. In the mean time? I think we should continue make fun of their ridiculous efforts to con the most enlightened people in the world! (Aka model T Ford owners.)
Allow the spam threads to drop out of sight. Open a new thread like this one and have some fun at their expense. Then go out to the shop, and replace that weeping soft plug with a buffalo nickel.

Well said, Wayne. This proves that the rumor that has been circulating that Californians are idiots has been greatly exaggerated. Well, maybe not completely.

Mack, If your T runs for over four hours, it s a sign its running strong and maybe, hard.

Mike S, Believe me, MOST Califonions are total IDIOTS! The only exceptions I know are a few hundred antique automobile hobbyists. We either need to organize and take over the state? Or all leave en masse to another state and simply dominate it.

I need to go see if my aluminum foil hat is back from the cleaners?

Why not have a second or third administrator besides Chris?

I would hate to be on my annual beach vacation and have to deal with this crap.

Dan are you volunteering?

Ever notice the threads complaining about spam take up more space than the spam threads?

Chris and a whole bunch of us are enjoying ourselves & our Model T's in sunny Northern California - I'm sure he'll get to it sometime but right now, we're having a great time - approx. 120 Model T's of every model you can imagine !

Mike - Sure.

Well,instead of starting a thread and taking up more space,
Just what is required to be a moderator?
Perhaps if those requirements were posted,some folks could check the list and see if they qualify.
I mean really, if 10 people ,some in different time zones, looked at the site a hour a day and removed bs spam, it would be a big help i am sure to the 1 guy that is trying to keep it running.
Perhaps the volunteers could be given limited power to prevent abuse.But at least when someone comes on here wanting to sell dope and money the post could be deleted in shorter order.

Sounds like R.S. ought to volunteer.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mike Kossor - Kenilworth, NJ on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 - 12:26 pm:

There are two conflicting issues:

1. Everyone should be allowed to post to promote free exchange of information on the Forum and provide maximal availability of Model T parts in the classified.

2. Unrestricted posting privilege is vulnerable to excessive spam that discourages reading the Forum and classifieds.

So, how about a simple "Model T" themed "I am not a spammer" test in order to post? (like the I am not a robot test but tests for Model T familiarity rather than general knowledge)

For Example, before a posting privilege is granted, the poster must answer one or more Model T questions like:

What was the first Model T production year?
How many drums are in the Model T transmission?
What is the name for the Model T cooling method?
Original pistons were made of what material?
What type of material are main bearings made of?
How many magnets are mounted to the flywheel?

Knowledge Model T folks who can learn and/or contribute from the Forum and classifieds would typically know but casual spammers would not know without doing research.

Only problem with that is some 30 something kid that just inherited his grandfather's Model T and is just beginning their, soon to be passing interest, won't know the answer to any of them.

Mike, How many magnets are mounted on the flywheel? I haven't counted them lately. . . .
the other questions are pretty good though.

What a bunch of nonsense...

Christ Almighty- scroll through the thread list and read what interests you and ignore the rest!

For that matter, I bet there are several regulars on here that couldn't answer all of them. Given the number of modifications that so many seem to do in the name of reliability, and the number of folks out there that couldn't care less what was under the hood as long as they got some neat sheet metal to show off, coupled with so many nowadays that don't know a wrench from a screwdriver, one day the guy who knows the answer to all of those will be non-existent. How many drums? What's a transmission drum? Cooling method? I don't know. I think that thing there might be a water pump. Magnets on the flywheel? Why would it have magnets on the flywheel? Grampa said it had oil slingers on the flywheel.

Bah-Humbug; Enjoy the spam and hope you don't get a callus on your scrolling finger. :-)

Number of Magnets mounted on the flywheel?
All of them unless one fails off and messes up the rest.

Heck If'n I was to take the test to become a American citizen i couldn't pass it.
BUT I could go look on a flywheel and count the magnets. I would have to mark 1 and make sure I didn't miss count. :-)

Another issue with those questions? Most spammers are probably computer literate enough to find most of those answers in about ten seconds each. Or less.
I understand that there already are a few assistant moderators, but I don't recall their names offhand. And I do think they should be enjoying the tour!!!!!! To blazes with us bums that didn't go!

Of course, I DO want to see about three hundred photos of the tour posted here in a few days!
