obligitory dumb message


Hi:

I'm just posting this retarded message here because I'm trying to help out some of your forum users with a wiki article I wrote. Your forum software won't allow me to post a URL since I haven't posted one other message, so I'm posting here so that I CAN POST THE STUPID URL.

If you ask me, that's the most retarded RETARDED set of hoops I've ever seen to allow a user to post a URL. It's not going to stop one iota of spam and all it does is annoy people who are trying to add to your community.

Please stop making your well-meaning users jump through retarded hoops.

Could we see the results of your research that supports this statement?

Unless you can prove you're the most popular member of this girl's school, you better wind your neck in. The anti-spam measure has worked and continues to work extremely well. Real geniuses now how to post a non-clickable url - you trying to say you don't.

Anyway, "yer mom" jokes. Jeez.

Interesting point is that his link seems to be a legitimate and helpful addendum to the thread on which he put it.

Peculiar how a bad attitude and groundless complaining can spoil what should have been a positive first encounter.
