Some of us got promoted to help keep the spam bots out.

Not that the stupid things ever stop coming, of course.  It's like trying to stop a zombie horde.  Except they're abnormally dumb, cant spell, and try to sell you crazy stuff.

But now they'll never get past the wall of people with too much free time on their hands.

Or is that bit just me?  Not sure.

What do you think our stance on purifying threads of off topic content should be?

I have to say, I'm a purists and would cleanse the world with fire.

If we tried to do something about threads that go off topic, most of the forum would just go up in smoke.

Would there be anything left?  I dont even know.

Baring a counter suggestion, I propose at least technical threads should be cleansed.

Leave it as is.  There is your counter.

So, if I'm the id, and Cinth is the superego, is then Pepisolo the ego? In this analogy Misery would be a fluctuating conscious/subconscious drive that acts nearly independent to the gestalt.

More seriously, technical threads are most useful when they contain relevant, accurate, and concise information. Banter decreases their use, and thus has negative value to the thread.

The patch threads (and suchlike) I'm less concerned with because they are more casual.

He's derailing this thread by talking about this thread.  Quick, post a cat gif.


The only thing on these forums that needs to be cleaned up are the spam bots.  Grab a flamethrower and proceed to BBQ some bots.

Trying to decide if the centers are upscaled too much. Thoughts?

Looks fine to me, though art isn't my department.
