You mean you're not always monitoring the threads?

Hmmm... might need to change my vote.

And, Blue... that was horrible.

Edesignuk is a pretty regular member, I think he would do it fine, the rest of us, europeans members can check it the first months ...

Only problem with that is, he'd have to just wasteland threads, instead of abusing the newbies.

Absolutely no fun in that...

No fun, but it'd be better for the forums, no?

Why does edesignuk's regularity (ewww...) have anything to do with this thread? Wait, that is way too much information! Am I back in the stalker thread again?

Why does he have to pick one? He can still do both, right?

I think edesignuk would do an excellent job. I'd vote for him (if we decided mods by voting)!

Well, the image code is turned off.

So if he nukes a newbies thread...



All you'll see is a line of text...

I really like this. We could number them for policing of their cations. Give them the ability to edit the spam threads removing reference to the site.

What the tag line. "justice has been served"?

Maybe you could be Judge Thredd 1 and I could be Judge Thredd 2. Of course I would be the more compassionate one.

ROTFL!

Remember I said that I would be the more compassionate one. I only want to serve justice on spammers.

we need to choose "baby mods" by the timezone, so someone will be around 24/7 to punish the spammers.

one each in east asia and europe. regular mods can cover the western hemisphere, i think.

global MR ban the spammer squad!

I personally think that "E" would tone it down with the added power (if the Mods chose to give it). The Mods giveth, and the Mods taketh away... abuse it and lose it.

But "E" is not the only choice, there are a number of responsible members who take a great interest in this board, are respected by the masses, and would show wisdom in their judgment. I'm sure the Mods have a short list in mind since they have discussed this already.

Another good "nick"; the Spamminator

Might work better with my thoughts that the jr. mods would only take on spam.
