Thanks for the spam reports. Probably the best way to get the message to us is to use the "report spam" button at the bottom of each post.
Also, new guidelines for the Current Events (i.e. Dumberer threads) subforum (in response to some terrific ideas posted here):
J. and I are both tired of this subforum. As someone in transmoderation already pointed out, the forum is not a (stupid) news agglomerator.
Therefore, effective immediately, and also applicable retroactively if I see fit, if you post a thread linking to a news story, you will need to not only provide excerpts, but a brief summary. I trust that you will all to be as biased and incendiary as all get out. Otherwise, even if you've spent your entire day arguing with some other moron, I'll delete the entire thread.
Also, if you exceed a reasonable number of new threads, and the exact number will be subject to the discretion of the moderator, we will cull them as we see fit. We will start with the threads that annoy us most.
