Geez, you all are super-spammers, ok? Feel better?? Sheesh. ;)

Now I know why I don't post much. :rolleyes:

Surely there must have been a more felicitous manner of expressing this.

Remember, it's only spam if no one finds it of any value. For instance, by defining spam so narrowly, this post might actually be of value to someone, thus removing from it the moniker of spam.

I think about spamming. I click the post reply button, I write the spam, then I spend ten minutes debating myself whether to put it up or not. More often then not it gets deleted. Thus my post count sufferes, but I get to keep my warm fuzzies.

Speaking of warm fuzzies...

*sends a package of warm fuzzies to TM*

I don't really spam, any more. Well, I don't think I do. I didn't notice it back then and if I still do it, I don't notice it, now.

I don't know what my most posts in a day was. Probably about 15-20. I could manage more, but then again, I also like having a life outside of an internet forum...

Basically, while I could spend a couple of hours to set a new post-per-day record, that won't be beaten, quickly, I'll merely settle for helping Alo in his attempt. :P

Actually, it doesn't stand for that any more than "****" stands for "Ship High in Transit" or similar nonsense.

It's a working definition, though... of course there are plenty of spammers who don't realize they're annoying, or don't understand how they're being annoying, or do understand but don't intend to change anything... *sigh*

And now for something completely different: Where is TM, anyway?

He's posted on Desperance here and there, and his ban is over in, what like three days?

Accommodating to Wikipedia, "Sending People Annoying Messages" is possibly a folk etymology for SPAM.

TM will be back Saturday. Until then, we can only look forward with antcipation.

My spam is not usually though about. It only gets deleted if it was really dumb, which it kind of is sometimes anyway. Well, here we go again. :/

On my calendar July 7 = Thursday (yesterday). Maybe Drakey hasn't got around to it yet. Cheer up, Dolphin. He will be back. Soon.

The obvious answer is that TM has finally had enough and has left.

The seventh was the last day of the ban. Today is the eighth, and he is unbanned.

Apparently TM isn't aware that he's unbanned yet. I wonder how long that will be.

A more common expansion of spam is "Short, pointless annoying message". But then again, nothing's really definitive as they're all made up off the top of someone's head.

I make it about 16 hours after he's been unbanned and not one sight of TM, though... [insert some sort of nautical/pirate joke, here]

TM has come and gone a couple times today, but hasn't posted.

Edit: Still Canned though.

If my memory serves me, **** was named after faeces because the 'ship in high transit' that they named it after was carrying manure. I doubt it though.

The expletive to which you refer is derived from Old English. The word "transit" first appeared in Middle English. So obviously the acronym can't be the real etymology.

...Aran didn't make that up?

I must've missed something big - what was TM banned for? Not that he doesn't deserve it, of course, but it must've been bad if he finally got it after this long without...
