    Would be nice if a couple users were permitted to ban users with less than, say, 6 posts, for additional spam policing.

    50 would be a better limit. You'd need incredible luck to catch them before 6 posts unless you sit there and refresh the pages constantly

    Is there any way to screen applications with chinese origin IPs? The spamming is getting worse and worse.

    Why was texas_jack banned? Also, the forum clock is off by about 20 minutes.

    And perhaps it's related, but what happened in his "all young chicks" thread in DT that it got squirrelled?

    Perhaps the frequency would lessen if you explicitly mentioned what the offense was. It seems that the only explanation given lately for bans refers to the banned member's last thread as if we all had knowledge of its contents. The people who most need to be aware of the rules are probably the ones least likely to know the contents of the offensive thread.

    Pretty sure t_j is not banned, it just says he is. Can't recall the origin of that joke.

    If he's banned I can only assume it's cause the young girls thread said "fuck" in the title?

    and bingo was your name-o.

    About fourteen zillion times that rule has been stated...you guys have been told, reminded, retold, rereminded, youve had your thread titles edited with IAMAMORONCOSISWEARINTHREADTITLES probably two dozen times, and locked on sight...

    And yet...

    A point of clarity, but what do you guys constitute as swearing? Obviously overly vulgar phrases, fuck, bitch, and bastard... what about hell, damn, shit, and others I'm probably forgetting?
