TS was spamming of a sort. He was raising awareness of a News item that had come up on www.arrse.co.uk and another military web site.

Anyone want to read the subject can have a brows through this rather long thread: http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/vie ... imbys.html

He posted there under another name ( quite easy to figure if you no his background).

I feel it was a worthy cause, hope the rest of you do also.

I agree with you...it is a worthy cause..

But it is just so unlike the TS I remember...to post just something like that..and then not follow up

OuterLimit:

You are correct... That was spam... But, with security in mind, a quick visit would have indicated that it was not the type of spam that is intended to make the sender any cash... hence it could be seen as benign.

Mistress Le Fay:

Glad to see you're antennae are still working... Wrong, but working...

Jinx:

You're additional research payed dividends

Undies:

Well... That has me sh1tting bricks... <LOL>

Mox:

Using the IP was hardly fair... ;)

Debs:

I guess our personal conversations paid dividends in the "Is it the Shark" Sweepstakes... Email me...

Back to the dear Mistress:-

Are you saying that once I open my mouth I can't shut it again? I resemble that remark...

You can probably all tell by now that I am not some impostor with a nefarious agenda. We needed support, lots of it and we set ourselves targets with deadlines. We needed the support of everyone we could get to reach a specific target. Since I was cajoling people into digging into the most irrelevant places to try to find help I decided that I should probably do the same. I didn't return because I was busy helping with the campaign which, upon it's successful conclusion, I recall Sweetie rushing by saying something along the lines of "... pay attention to me now..."

So, as the unofficial adjudicator in the "Is it the Shark" Sweepstakes I make the following judgement:-

First Place:- Debs... Target recognition was spot on. No research required.
Second Place:- Jinxy... Just a little spade work got the answer.
Third Place:- Moxnix... Using the IP was cheating somewhat but you also used previous knowledge.

You know me I R Th3 Bastard

Don't worry the restrictions go away after 15 posts, or 10 I forget. They wont give me access to the database, so I can't turn it off for just one user.

/I have no idea why they don't trust me with full database access???

Els, Once again you know not what you do.


TS I'm looking but here is the hierarchy, Three admins have access to the database.

One (currently) does not have internet access and is not allowed to touch ANYTHING from an admin point of view.

Two Does backup and other such DB maintenance, but is usually too drunk to post.

The third is a whiz with this phpBB stuff, but alas works in IT and only has dialup at home. (U.K. type bloke, bloody - bleeding ;;; not sure how to cuss / insult in U.K. speak. Just keep posting BS one liners and after that I'll give you the tour.

There are hidden sections here full of worthless B.S. that can keep one occupied for 10 maybe 12 minutes

Because, like me, you like to drink your weight in alcohol on ANY given evening then jump online and see what kind of mischief you can cause. So I think that admins wanted to keep the database intact for that very reason.

(at least it's why I've never been asked to be an Admin)

Now, TS, sorry for the misunderstanding - but like Dino said, you're always welcome here if you like. We'd like to see ya around..

I surrender....

The stupid post limit won't even let me edit an existing post to fix a spelling mistake...

There's better ways to stop idiots than to dumb everything down to the idiot's level - which is what this flood limit is. Look at vBulletin's plugin that randomly F$cks with a bad user's ability to read, post, etc making the BB unusable without being obvious about it... That is a better way of dealing with this...

Waiting patiently for my ten minutes to elapse to post this... Strum, strum, strum.... Yawn... You get the point???
