    Sleeping or just relaxing from working several 11 hour shifts at work because of network issues lol.

    Trust me what you saw is only a very small amount of what we get before to many people see.

    That's our bait thread. Try to filter many to that single thread. Easier to wrangle lol.

    I normally am spot checking till about 5 am. But we had some system issues on Monday at work then the past 2 days had network issues. And end of last week we started a new process. So I have a few long days at work and then had to get up early today to go donate so I went to bed as soon as I got home.

    What gets me are all the 3-year-old spam posts/threads, that somehow flew in under the radar, and never even become visible until some n00b spammer resurrects them for a brief moment of glory.

    And then, the ones that don't get resurrected, that you only find by manually digging through every single ancient

    We're working on it, yo.

    Cer0 and myself usually are around for the graveyard (in the US) shift, while Simon and Broomhead usually get the early morning shift.

    If you'd like to help us clear the spam, report the posts (exclamation point on the bottom of every reply). If you can't report, reply saying "spam" and report THAT post. We appreciate any help we can get.
