Perhaps disabling guest posting would stop the spambots.

That would require Doc or an admin to give a fuck.

Well one of the 'admins' did but they have a life and to be honest there probably isn't much left of the original idea of Frothers left to inspire those who started it to give much of a fuck about it.

I am not now, nor have I ever been a 'real' Frother. However I liked the look of it and enjoyed it when I arrived (I am aware it was but a shadow etc etc). I guess it had a certain cachet of being different and I suspect that those who started it don't particularly want it tidied up and gentrified.

Think of it as a social science experiment to see the effects of entropy on group cohesion.

We are indeed 'fucked'. :cry:

Well, we can just wait for them to give up enough to stop paying.

The Frothpot is a bit infested but to be honest sometimes it's hard to tell. :loopy:

And someone has done a great job of binning them - worth noting - sorry those who are guilty, but... the few spam messages left are those with replies from 'us' on them - told you it made it harder to bin the messages if you put your 'wit' on there :D

Don't respond to spam!

Apologies -- though in my defense, I haven't done it unless someone else has "gone there" first (lookin' at you, reb!). I shall, however, strive mightily to restrain myself in future. :oops:

To balance my nomination for TMP ice cream, I guess the Frothers Flavour should currently be "Phish Food". :D

No worries - I'm just an arse who can't resist a good 'told you so'. :oops: Sorry!
