Sandbox terrorized

    It seems that the Sandbox is being terrorized by 2 new users: Krissie & Jason268. I hope the mods will take appropriate counter-terrorist actions.

    Use of the word/prefix "Terror" is fast becoming the new Godwin's Law.

    Besides, the forum isn't being terrorised, it's just either being:

    a) Trolled/Spammed
    b) Spammed by a naive user without a clue

    Given the nature of Channel9, it's hard to decide, but I haven't seen any replies pushing a particular software platform....*cough* so that lessens the chance "krissie" is a troll of some sort.

    It seems to be random SPAM.

    It's not really spam. It's just really annoying.

    I fear for our future...

    At least it isn't as bad as the 'phallic photo spam' that hit us about a year ago.

    Anyone else find the timing oddly coincidental with Charles' leave of absence?

    Thank you!

    The forum page still lists the wrong post count for the threads though.

    ... well... there are good arguments for counting and not counting deleted threads.

    Big surprise. Chazz takes a vacation and you come out will all guns blazing. This ought to be a fun couple of weeks.


    wtf? ...

    He was right to delete their posts, they were nothing but lame spam junk.

    Err, did you actually see what they were posting? Or are you being purposefully obtuse?

    Not a bad idea to have some Mono app up there.  Feel free.

    Ahem!

    Ok, it's outdated compared to the windows version and rather obsolete in light of the web version, but still. Smiley
