You folks have always been the best. Thanks for all the you've done and are getting ready to do.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

I appreciate all your efforts in this. The combination of luck and your efforts mean that it has been a while since I've seen anything that could constitute SPAM, mad ramblings yes (after all I do sometimes read my own posts), but SPAM no.

Thanks.

The crazy amount of spam lately has been quite shocking. Thank you for staying on top of it. It is challenging to deal with this sort of thing and not make it difficult for legitimate users at the same time. Thanks again for doing what you do. It is appreciated.

SPAM use to be a rarity, then a cottage industry, and now almost a fortune 500 enterprize. I thought years ago that it would decline as those generating it would suffer from diminished returns like a very poor business reputation for their outlandish practices, but they do not seem to care at all.

If the time comes, and I really do not hope it does, but if that time comes where the internet is governed I hope the government US Internet Post Office of that regulation body will be able to identify SPAMMERS and charge them the cost of a snail mail letter for every SPAMMY message they send.

If not the day will come when some SPAMMER over stimulates a savant and the savant will eliminate not only the original SPAMMER but put and end to all this unwanted SPAM misery.

Maybe I should write a book. End of Rant! Happy Friday!

you could consider creating an easy way for some of the most prolific volunteers on the site to be able to feed a post to something for an automated removal; so say Sean or Grant or Gail used the existing {Report!} link, and the text they pasted contained a specific key, that post (or all posts from that user in the last 24 hours) might get auto removed.

just a thought.
