Aran's list will always have a top ten. Who would you rather see on it? Me, or you? I'm not bothered, overly, that I have contributed to a revitalization of the forums, so I'm okay with being on that list. Hopefully the renewed interest in the forums will continue, as they are a great place to meet other folks that enjoy playing Jeff's games and the other games within that genre.

I predict that I will have exactly 100 posts for the upcoming monthly rankings. I do believe that is a person record. I am thrilled and ashamed as is appropriate.

I'd like to beat this month's personal best with less spam and more legitamate posts. Still I will miss some of the insanity that accompanied this race.

Let the record show that I reject Canned as a custom title. It's just a manually assigned non-custom title.

Ah. Okay. Well.. I do have a second, a grand master plan that might cater to all of your tastes much better. It's pretty simple all in all. I heard from a very respectably oldbie that it's "a brilliant idea". I think we can all agree on that.

Okay, so hear me out here. I'll put it in three steps, which all relate to each other and basically mean the same thing and can be arranged in any order one may want.



--



Here's how it goes:

1. BAN EVERYONE

2. LOCK THE BOARDS

3. DISABLE SIGNING UP

Pretty good, huh? That way the boards are in like a read-only mode and no one can ruin their perfection in any way. Except they're not perfect. You know why? You just ruined them. Thanks a lot.

(there's still time! hurry, do my plan! do it!)

Yea Riibu, that was spam. And possibly a flame.
Is this some plea for attention?

I'm going to post some calculations once the final stats come out for this month. While it won't be ironclad, it will give you a general idea of how spammy everyone is this month. It will also show how everyone contributed. Yes, that includes you, Riibu.

EDIT: I'm not bothered to be on the top of that list (the top ten, that is). It just shows that I made my quota this month... along with the quotas of about 6 different people.

Is that a little bit of pride I sense, Nioca? Excellant. Pride leads to arrogance. Arrogance leads to flaming. Flaming leads to suffering...

-_- Dear lord people, do you not understand a joke is present here?

Okay, maybe if I tried explaining it and breaking it down. That always ruins the joke, but somehow I doubt there's many people left here who'd understand what it was about anyway.

My point: there has been lots of spamming this past month. I did not at any point claim nothing good was posted. Just that there was a lot of spam. Perhaps more than usual for a very long while. Do we agree?

Another point: the attitude towards spam this past month has been lax. It's been a source of joke, even. "To spam!" Now, community-wise, it's perfectly acceptable to joke about it since everyone else is doing it. This is conforming. If one were to joke about spam in a negative way instead, the community will turn against you for not conforming. (count so far: 3, possibly more)

Yet another point: personally I feel it's a shame there are so many topics with so many pointless one-liner posts, most of which don't really contribute much in any way. Sure, it's fun and increases one's post count, but ... it's spam. As a frequent lurker, this quite obviously is not something I prefer.

This leads to: a joke post. So, the humour on it seems to be lost. I know, I have a very strange sense of humour. It's part of being Finnish, most often. We're a damned special bunch of people.

And last: I do not mean to insult anyone personally, nor flame. Unless you perhaps feel I have insulted the feelings of these very boards themselves, which would be quite a feat and I wouldn't mind putting that on my CV. You can quote me on that.

And I was only half serious with my previous posts, anyway. So, we good now?

Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Yes Riibu, we knew you were joking. Or I did at least.
But I wasn't joking about kicking you out of the clan if you pull any more stunts like that again. :mad:

:D

The Ballad of Jed Spampett
by Kevin Rollins

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor white trash, kinda crazy in the head
Then one day as he was shootin, at some food
Up from the ground came those cans of blue

Spam that is
Pink and sweet
Mystery Meat

Well the next thing you know, he could feed the whole clan
When out of the woods popped a Hormel man
He said Spamabama is the place you oughta' be
So they loaded up the truck but only got to Antrey

Hill folks that is
Make you squeal!!!
Bubba ville!!!

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his clan
And they would like to thank you folks for chockin'down that Spam
Your all invited back 'ere morn to this localaty
To take a shot and see if ya got a case of dispepsy

Gas pain that is!!!
Indegestion
Moan and groan
Get the Rolaids!! Ya hear?!

No, General is no where near Misc was.
For the first couple of months it was, then it settled down. Misc was a scary, scary place.

Also, how dare you not conform, Riibu?

SPAM IS PEACE.
CANNING IS SLAVERY.
POSTCOUNTS ARE STRENGTH.

OBEY.

No! We shall meet in the forum where there is no spam!

—Alorael, who wouldn't worry too much about that forum's number. The chance that it will herald the dreaded White is miniscule, right?
