Can please somebody ban the user lorenzo3 for 2^32582657-1 days ? I guess he is a spambot - ing the forum with "FOR SALE" postings and circumventing the 300 seconds rule!

Last fiddled with by Andi47 on 2006-10-26 at 11:40 Reason: Typo

From what we see here, he has never posted before.



Edit: Maybe someone else cleaned up the mess?

Mike, do your forumistic superpowers allow you to sesrch for deleted posts/threads, so you can see what some other mod might have deleted?

Actually, the word is "neologism" - but yes, "forensic" works in this context, as well.

Maybe my sarcasm detector needs retuning, but do you honestly think a hyper-literate guy like Ernst could make a mistake this basic?

For the record, I think he should have used 'forumtastic' or 'forumtacular'

From what I know about hhh, he wouldn't call anyone "stupid" to his face, except in a purely sarcastic/humourous manner.
