    These quarrels are lacking imagination I think...

    Several years back, a guy threatened to drive round to another Magicseaweed forum members house and throw a motorcycle engine through his window.. now that's creative!

    Anyone who gets scammed over the internet in 2020 is a dumb dumb.

    Last word on this thread... as I mentioned on the history thread, I'm still the administrator, and review each account registration request. I have a checklist and usually can weed out most morons upfront, but obviously this method isn't 100% failsafe, and a few occasionally slip through.

    My ask... if folks here can tag the spammers and just message me (and this has been done, thank you) I'll quickly review stuff and either give the offender a warning and delete their thread, or delete their account and their thread, depending on how stupid they are. It's not possible for me to monitor all the threads- nearly 3,000- so this process is the best going forward, and has seemed to work fine for 20+ years.
