It was posted by "PDub". I got a screen shot of the post before it disappeared. It went quick. LOL


PDub...certainly not PDubs of the Sith...he's been with me for most of the day, and he doesnt post at all anymore.

Weird.

You cant veiw the forum anymore, I see.

I can't view that post but can get in to other areas fine so I think it is just that thread.

Edit:  This goes to Zod's post below.  When I reply to sender my email bounced back to me so it wouldn't of work it seems.

Oh. I have some interesting news, if I can find a link, about a certain service you can pay for that floods back spam to spammers 20 fold. I heard about it on the news a few days ago.

You'd think they could just delete the post in question and not the ENTIRE thread...  ::)

Most of the time SPAM is sent from addresses that are either unable to accept email or are unused after the mass emailings.  Also, most of the time requesting to have your name taken off of a SPAM email list only serves to confirm that your email is a valid one and you end up getting  a billion more crappy junk mails.

I'm sure that if something like that were done, Phillip could just delete freeze@rebelscum.com and create a new email address to send from the next time some toy company pays him out the whazoo to send out advertisements.

I heard about the spam flood thing myself.  I gotta assume that it's more sophisticated than just something that returns E-mails to the sender's address.  Maybe it can track the path of the E-mail and find the original server (though I figure most of those paths gotta be spoofed to begin with).  If they have something that can get past the spoofs... well then that'd be worth reporting on the news.

I wonder if there's a link floating around out there somewhere.

Don't drag the Jawa into your tiff with Jimmy_. Jimmy_ is his own person and hasn't been active with us for about 6 months or more.

I know that Nick. I wasn't talking about theJawa personally. I was just pointing out Jimmy_'s sig there. Out of respect for you and most of theJawa crew, I refrained from posting all the public conversations he and Delvec had about me in your forums there when I wasn't around. ;)

And Tom, 'Scum never had a link to us up on their site, and we've never had one back to them either. I assume you're talking about the affilliate type buttons on the main page, right?

LJ, Josh or Tommy can correct me on this if I'm wrong, but I don't think the RS forums have all the cool bells and whistles that ours have here.  We can pretty much do anything with member's posts/threads - we can merge them, split them, isolate single posts... pretty much everything, and quite unobtrusive to our members too.  Some very nifty features here, that really help to keep this forum organized and running smoothly, for sure.  8)

Matt, on the left hand side of the main page where you have the fourm, chat room, etc buttons one of them is links. If you click on that there is a RS link which takes you to RS. I would post a screen shot of it if I knew how and had the time.

Edit: C3 is going to be fun now after this.  How many people here are going to get auto's.  I'm will probally get them but I was thinking about get the auto book for $200 and somethingt but decided against it after this.

You're right, the one feature that would totally help we dont have, the merge feature. That I would love to see, so much better on the eyes than to see all these locked threads!!! ;)

Just a little shout out to the staff here since Phillip removed Jedidefenders link at Rebelscum it would seem only fair to remove his link on here since most sites put up each other links as favors for each other. SInce it is apperant that they is no love between the sites then I don't see why there is a link to Rebelscum here.
Just my 2 cents


I'd like to think we can take the higher road and not sink to the petty level that has brought us to this point.   :)

Even if they don't have a delete post function - I know there is an edit-post function and one could simply remove the item, ban the user, and leave the thread.

Thanks for pointing it out, I hadn't noticed that...

You'd think so, but when my ass gets banned for nothing more than being buds with JediMAC?

Gone. :)

I just went in there and "updated" the page and dumped the RS linky... 8)

Phil doesn't give a rats ass about any of his members. Everyone should come here. Except GNT. Let him rot and rack up another 50000 posts this month.
