approach to the Grand
Just wanted to make sure that it wasn't a virus on my computer or anything. The Up Coming Events column on the right hand side of MP's homepage looks like it is advertising fotball, basketball and boxing matches. I can't even begin to describe my lack of care for these sports. I am bummed out that they re on MP and hope that they go away and don't last. These silly sports are already all over the place so the last place I want to see them is a website that I frequent. Jon C. Sullivan

Seriously! The recent spam attack on forums and events is annoying. Hopefully there is some way to stop the bots from destroying mp. Jon Marek

Yeah, it's a pretty significant spam attack- the admins have been removing those from the "Forums" section, usually the day they appear, but whoever is doing it keeps opening new accounts here and reposting daily. It may require a change to the way people start MP accounts, like one of those "captcha" verification apps, etc. There's a "Flag" link on forum posts and comments, but I don't see an option like that for reporting spam in the "Events" section.

Racked and loaded... name that splitter behind me?...
This individual has opened up 20 accounts from 10 different IP addresses in the last 24 hours. Limits are meaningless to him. And he is using accounts he opened up yesterday to post today. He's a f'in bastard. Andy Laakmann

Which way again?
That sucks, Andy. Can we get rid of Reginald while you're deleting? If you find something positive "he"'s ever contributed, I retract that request. Don't think I'll have to, though. Cunning Linguist

Wait. Its really one person being a schmuck and not some sort of botnet attack? The person truly does suck if they are investing this much personal time.
