I think i got em all now. Seems like every year or so they attack real bad.

I've tried to figure out how to add moderators, Jon might be one now, but I might have just made it look like he's a mod. Jason might need to handle that one.

Sorry for the absence, i haven't had much time to get on here. I have been traveling, living out of my R/T and friends' couches, I gave up my house and have no permanent home. This is not a bad thing, i am having a great time and seeing amazing things, but i don't always have proper internet (currently tethering my MacBook off my Blackberry via Bluetoof) and it will be hard to get on here regularly for a while.

We just need a way to flag them so that they can't post anymore.

If it gets real bad i'll send a message to jason on 2gn, see if he can do something as well.

Well once I find them I IP ban them, ban their email address, delete their account and move all threads/posts, its just a matter of keeping up on it. Even last night there were new posts from spambots popping up as I was deleting them.

?

At first I thought you were alerting me to a spam account, but no user by that name exists? Did I miss deleting a thread by this user now-deleted user?

Yea, it's appears that I'm a mod now, but with no real power.

Doesn't McDonalds or $tarbuck$ have wi-fi out there?

BTW.... What's going on with the San Fran Plan????

I'm trying to make Jon a mod, if he wants to be, I haven't had much luck figuring out how to do that.

I should try a McDonalds just because I have stuff to download. I'm cool now that I figured out this tethering, but that's only until i get caught, tethering is against my cellular provider's TOS from what I understand and its super slow. I can't stand the smell of coffee so I'll pass on Starbucks lol

San Francisco is now the past, I got fucked on the job, got out there and there was not enough work. In the end I could have had the job still but with reduced hrs and pay, but it wouldn't have paid near enough to cover SF's ridiculously high prices. The dude I was staying with was a total drunk so i bailed, now staying in L.A., not really sure what my long term plans are. I have a feeling I will end up in Florida, I need to go to college so I can quit chasing dead end jobs and that seems like a warm, cheap place to do it.

Oh geez what a trip dude... hope it all works out for you.

Cincy isn't that far away 8)

Oh my... I'm so sorry that it didn't work out. After all the work you put into moving, just to get screwed over. Been watching your profile on FB, but didn't realize what was going on. Man, that blows.

If you do end up in Florida, there are plenty of cheap places to live, but from what I understand, the job market is tight. Ocala and Gainesville are nice inexpensive towns to live in, but if your looking to be near the coast, I think Clearwater and St. Petersburg are low cost also. Dunno about Miami or Naples, think they are higher than Cincy.


On the less important topic, Yea, I can do the moderator thing. I baby sit car salespeople all day, so doing it on an internet forum should be ok.
