Rats, I had rather hoped that threat on Cuban state television was real. I wouldn't mind knowing more about that topic...

Heh.

If anyone misses the recently deleted "how to gain weight" spam, I'll make it up to you by sharing my favorite tips.

But let the m-m's wave their wand and... "Poof!"  Thanks, m-m's.

Now it's the soccer dudes.

But at least we know how to calculate what probability weighs!

Yeah, we see all the Korean spam today, but the bot is up to 150 posts now (edit: I didn't realize there were 2 bots -- total of 310 spam posts at present) and rather than race against a bot and click on 150 310 individual spam posts I think I'm just hoping for a staff mod to come in and batch-delete the whole mess.

Fortunately, it's choosing a lesser-used portion of the site, so if you just avoid Questions/Comments you should be alright.

No spam this morning! I don't know whether the spammers took a night off (unlikely) or whether the mods instituted some restriction on registration and spamming and so on, or whether someone just had insomnia and zapped them in real time, but it was a real pleasure not to have to sift through to real new posts! Good job, whoever was responsible!

Yes, once more we bow to the moderators for their heroic deletions!
