spam?
seems like either a spam attempt or a forum guideline violation (debate by link only)

Message 41 and Message 123

Or it belongs on the humor thread ...

Enjoy.

Re: Infinite brickbats and targets tempt the tosser
Hi Percy

Abuse has been rare (though that doesn't make the objects of abuse of the system feel any better) so this is not high on the priority list.

Agreed, it is usually 1 or 2 people attacking 1 or 2 people, which is not much affect on the rest.

Richard Byers and Coyote have been victims, for example.

Detecting when someone is voting for messages all from a single member and disallowing it.

The problem is when someone is attacking the person rather than the message, and that is harder to determine with a computer algorithm.

So only allowing the 5 or so to be repeat targets would tend to cover that.

It might also be interesting to be able to 'fetch' the messages that are cheered/jeered.

Personally, I think only cheers should be allowed -- that should encourage good posts rather than jeer battles.

Enjoy.

Peppered Moth Thread drift and length for summary
Peppered Moths and Natural Selection is now at 342 messages, long enough to enter into summary mode.

Most new posts are not really about the topic -- that the peppered moths really are a good example of natural selection -- and the most recent posts are completely off topic.

I think it is time to close it and see how many want to make summary posts.

Enjoy.

Edited by AdminPD, : The thread is now in summation mode.
