    Jeasus, it was a joke alog with your "spam king" title

    And most of my posts have come from re-posting needed threads that have been lost and helping sorting things out in the moderators room to get this place up and running again the best we can. Sorry about that.

    i havent read this in fear of getting caught up in a bit thing of bad stuff.

    How about a mod deletes the thread and we all post happily ever after - Knox included.

    Lighten up on the spam though - it does upset some people

    OK I'm going to admit to not looking at it for too long

    That was because I was so busy not spamming, instead posting necessary stuff

    well, i've calmed down a bit now and i see the forums have aswell, sorry to all for any offense caused.

    Agent, i wasn't having a go at you over it, was just pointing out that i hadn't exactly been spamming my ass off.


    And zathras, you've completely mis-understood and mis-quoted me there, I have not "seen the light" i never did spam half as much as was made out, if i had then would action not have been taken to remove posts? and I AM NOT having a go at other people for having a higher post count than me, I really couldn't care less about other peoples post count and even my own tbh. The whole point of this thread was to stop the endless spam that was quite frankly getting to me, even "the spam king" has limits.

    If a mod feels the need to delete this then go ahead and delete it, if theres enough call for deletion i'll do it myself.

    I apologise to everyone for speaking my mind and being honest maybe i'll just shut up and put "LOL" at the end of every thread shall i? that doesn't seem to cause quite so much fuss.

    Guys, the Spam King title that Knoxville earned himself was a light hearted joke about the amount of material he posts. There were people pre-hack with a lot less posts than Knoxville, all of which were spam. Knoxville contributed greatly to the Film and Home Entertainment forum, and his posts in GD with photos of his night out never failed to amuse.

    Now the forums have been reset, can you please leave your views of people behind and start fresh?

    Jeez, the whole thing about the spam king etc is a laugh anyway. Everyone knows Knox is a valued member of the forums and the reason we can laugh and joke about it is because it's not a problem. Other posters posted far more spam but we wouldn't joke about them, rather ask for action to be taken. Knox, I wasn't having a go at you as such, but your initial post and the sniping since did seem a bit out of character. My point was that post counts are not important and people shouldn't be too upset that they're gone.

    Its all fine and dandy now mate, i was out of character and i'm sorry for any offence/hurt feelings he caused, and i honestly don't mind the spam king joke, i find it funny myself, but some people think its serious.

    ah well, i've calmed down again and the old knoxeh is back

    I'm not leaving completely matey, just not searching through the pure spam thats been littered here this afternoon, its a bit better now people have gone to bed, nice and quiet.

    Its for the avatar, and simply to have a big number next to they're posts, its pointless and sad.

    bill hicks quote? if you mean the on in my sig thats a modifyed version of a quote from fight club.

    Tool? yeah they're good, not listened to any of their stuff for a bit though

    i still think that post counts should be done away with, people would only post when they actually had something to say as opposed to spamming all over the place just to get a higher tally so they can have an avatar, give people custom text and an avatar option from the start and i bet spam would be reduced by 500%.

    people spam for lots of reasons....
    1) to get a hiher post count... for avatar and stuff
    2) out of simple boredom they will just type any old codswollop
    3) because they think its funny
    4) because they have nothing good to say and spam is the only way they can say anything

    I agree, i'm browsing the forums looking for interesting general discussion and banter, and each post I visit is full of crap.

    Spam is futile, the mods will actively seek it out and do naughty things to it. My post count is a deterrent to any and all spammers, we can and will deduct posts for those doing it.

    On-topic discussion please, we're all smart folks, acting like it would be brill
