Re: Carbon 14
You are correct.

My impression was that the topic was showing serious danger of heading significantly away from the core topic theme.

Upon reexamination, I still seeing some (hints?) indications of such, but that all the discussion was relevant to Carbon 14 considerations.

See what happens when I think I've finally caught topic drift before it gets out of hand? I caught the topic drift before it even really started.

My topic drift alert statement was way too strong. I will revise it to what I should have said.

Re: ICR Sues Texas
But it all depends upon whether Adminnemooseus is willing to try moderating the thread.

Short version answer: No

Longer version answer: Do you think I'm that crazy?

Still longer version answer: I don't thinks I'm remotely up to understanding what's happening in that topic, and thus be in any position to supply any useful guidance, discipline, or magical fix. Or something like that.

Maybe a disinterested someone else is interested in taking a stab at moderating the topic, to be appointed "special moderator" status. Maybe kind of like being the Ken Starr of evcforum.net.

Again I say, I don't think I'm up to it. Besides, much of my time is going to be taken up by my fixing things up between Israel and Palestine.

Adminnemoseus (or something like that)

A link in the signature is not automatically considered spam
I've added this note at the message in question:

Adminnemooseus writes:

Just this comment: This message was reported as signature spam. The message is a legitimate reply, although I don't know if on-topic. And I think it's OK to have a non-commercial site link in the "sig". So, no action taken - Adminnemooseus

It would also be OK for Jar to have a "Dreamcatcher" link in his "signature". It might even be a good thing.

Still, thanks for flagging that message. But please, no replies to this message.

Re: Lock, open, lock, open...
Can't close it yet - The subtitle "Re: Deja Vu - The feeling this topic's been reopened before" has only been used 35 times so far. Let's shoot for 50 - Then we'll be talking quality deja vu (or something like that).

Re: The "Return to Immortality -- There is no death by natural causes" topic
OK - I guess we can wrap up this psychology study to determine what other members would choose to shine on with the crazy diamond.

Huntard and Phage0070 are the primary non-CD7 participants. As Gary Larson once said in one of his "Far Side" cartoons, "Of course they're fools. The question is, what kind of fools are they?"

Those 4 new spam Coffee House topics almost flew under the admin radar
Thank you for pointing out those subtle efforts to sneak something past the astonishingly oblivious administrative staff.

Spammer permanently suspended and 4 new spam topics deleted.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Add link.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Tweak link formatting, fix spelling error, add 2nd link, and do some more link formatting tweaking.

Re: Bloody spam
Spammer e-mail address banned. Spam PNT deleted.

Spammer ID permanently suspended - I would have deleted it, but that requires Director status, which I haven't had since the great site hacking episodes.

Re: Spam spam spam eggs and spam
I had the cleanup done before you got this message posted.

Well, at least it was a bit of board activity.

Signature spam like message without any spam
Those messages kind of look like those of a signature spammer, but there was not only no signature displayed, the poster never created any signature. Not a hint of spam to be connected to that ID.

Maybe an extremely concise reincarnation of our much beloved Brad McFall?

Maybe another appearance will clarify the situation.

Adminnemooseus

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Tweak paragraph 2.

Re: bad stuff query
My impression is that it was a pretty lame message. Maybe it was because it was a response to another pretty lame message.

I may or may not be correct, but regardless, I'll concede to your perspective and undo my previous edit.

Re: C'est un spammeur!
Blatant signature spammer of no redeeming value.

I did the permanent suspension and mucked up the signature links.

Adminnemooseus

ps: Also took care of another Mabus registration while I was at it. That one had not posted yet.

Re: Jar suspended??
Dr Adequate writes:

Agreed. It was a response to speculation about the possibility of the US being hit by a tsunami, in a thread about a tsunami. In the Coffee House.

1) This is not a discussion topic - The here replied to string of messages should not have been here (except for the first one).

2) That said, I'll reply to the end of the series, rather that the first (and proper) part of the series.

There is a lot I don't like about the nature of a lot of Jar's messages. But what has resulted in two suspension are "bare links without even having links" type messages. I, and probably most everyone else, needed to Google Jar's supplied phrase to find out what he is talking about. Not proper debate message content and it is a forum rule violation (rule 5).

NO REPLIES TO THIS MESSAGE, IN THIS TOPIC - IT WILL RESULT IN A SUSPENSION. If you feel you must respond, go to the General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') topic.

Adminnemooseus

Added by edit:

The relevant "The Public Record" suspension announcement. Note the there link to the previous Jar suspension announcement.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : See above.

Not a moderation discussion topic
1) This is the place to report perceived discussion problems (see topic title).

2) It is NOT the place to discuss such. That place is the General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures (aka 'The Whine List') topic.

3) I wish that OliverChant would not be so successful at dragging others down to his level (in this topic and elsewhere).

4) Or something like that.

5) No replies to this message (or any other message), in this topic (see #2 above). Replies in this topic may likely get you some variety of suspension (unless you have admin status).

6) Or something like that.
