please don't let them screw the forum more than it already is...
stay in charge, you're fine, we don't want a police here.
Guys, it's actually quite easy to set up your e-mail software in a
way it will block all incoming messages from a specific e-mail
address. Why don't you do that?

should be moderated I just ask who wants to do it and noone comes up so
we let things as they are...
This is the only way to work a forum... (with the volume we get)
- believe me, surfers and moderators is really not a good match. anyone
should be just fine by ignoring crapp and posting messages that'll make us
laugh, think or improve our skills. there's really nothing to it. ;-)
