For those with morbid curiosity, start on the last page of the members list and then go back, page-by-page, until you find members who do post more than once. (FWIW, the "First Post" in this thread doesn't show in post count.) It's better now; used to take 40+ pages to find one legitimate member. NB: that's 40 "members" per page. Note how many were "members" only long enough to create a spam account, and never logged into that account again. What Yoda said... Lo, the Noodly Appendages smite those with spam triggers in their profiles.


Welcome, new members. We're all looking forward to your posts...

Yeah, I get dozens of people logging into my Wordpress site without posting, commenting, etc. I have to dump a couple hundred every few months

Gidday From En Zed,
I have just read the Gospel of The Flying Spaghetti Monster and I'm convinced FSMism is the way, Today I printed out the 36 X A4 poster ( http://www.venganza.org/images/wordpres ... 36rast.pdf ) "Touched By His Noodly Appendages" and have it firmly mounted on a wall in our lounge!
May the Source be with you!

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

When is it ok to post in other threads? I'm pretty confused at the moment.

Make a post in another thread, once it gets approved you may post where you wish. Sin. WoE.

I love it! If this is a submission for The Loose Canon, you should post it again in the appropriate thread in the Scripture and Lore forum.
