Spammers are banned all the time and not announced, unless y'all want to hear about currency exchanges in china, princes in Nigeria and all sorts of things like that.

We are frequently reminded that threads aren't deleted. That's probably why there was some confusion.

Yes that's normally the case, given the cock pimply nature, and not being able to do myself (was on my way out the door) I did give the go-ahead for Julep to do the ban.

Unfortunately she used to a tool to get rid of spammers, which does delete threads/posts and reports them to a service as a spam bot and blocks their IP.

How much is the variance in your like numbers? When did you notice that happening?

It's been happening randomly for the last two months, roughly. I posed the question if the team can remove/change counts like that and was told no. So I don't know what's going on.

I have another question...aren't mods supposed to show up in the 'who's online' list? This is also not happening. Mods don't show as being online but are posting. Is this a new stealth thing?

We can't do that. We've been experiencing some random weirdness the last couple months. I'll add it to the ongoing list.

Are you sure it's not because of all those damn Amazon refugees?

Actually it might be partly their fault, but moreso long time forum users. The forum now has over 1 million posts and the original software was not really designed for that volume. Might have something to do with it, Deep Thought is looking into it so hopefully (fingers crossed) we will know soonish and even better might have a solution.

I wouldn't waste a lot of time on it. I was more concerned that a thread just disappeared for no apparent reason and didn't want to see other threads start disappearing randomly in case it was a software or database error or a hacker. Since we appear to know that it was just a simple mistake in how a ban was done it's no big deal as far as I care.

You mean you might have to "Langolier" some of the oldest necro-threads to make room?
