Regarding the Sudden Influx of Gore...


Today some sick person started flooding the forum with disgusting, frightening gore pictures. Please report these as "spam" rather than anything else, as the auto-deletion code will take care of the rest. While I could go and manually delete the posts, I have a feeling that they will keep posting more, so auto-deletion is by far the best solution, particularly since moderators may not be around all the time. I will contact Bert requesting an IP ban.

How does the reporting work? do I just have to hit report and then type "spam" in the comment box?

Yup!

Hit the "report" button on the top right corner.

A window comes up.

Don't enter anything but the word "spam".

Hit the "report post" button below the window...

Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).

You do realize that if I just do the spam report thing, that the Hawkguy user name and every one of your posts are deleted?

Not true, actually! Older established accounts are protected against autodeletion by the spam report handling system. Only recent accounts can be deleted this way. Otherwise it would be too easy for a trusted spam-reporter to accidentally or maliciously delete a valid user account.

Why not get a rename like TheAustralianChemist / Volanschemia did? (As did also pinkhippo11 / zephyr.)

(Personally, I like Hawkguy.)

wasn't it a joke/ironic post by Hawkguy? so why is a mod being like "you do realize I can vaporize your mortal ass from existence"?

I think Bert's point is that if you pretend to be a spammer it's awfully easy for someone to get the wrong end of the stick and get wiped. Fortunately Polverone put safeguards in place when he allowed 1 staff member or two trusted ordinary members to blast someone's account out of existence with one word.

Considering the origins of that phrase, your use of "wipe" is... :D

Anyway Hawkguy didn't include a link or url, so I thought it was obvious it wasn't actual spam.
