Please get rid, does it really take this long?

mermaidbutmytailfelloff Sun 03-Mar-13 02:19:46

Apparently so. I have doughnuts here...I could waft them and hope the smell wakes them up.....

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:20:37

Nice idea, I will do coffee pot.

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 02:21:56

<wafts coffee fumes to tech and mnhq>

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:22:19

When you do report stuff, how do you know if they have noticed?

DeepRedBetty Sun 03-Mar-13 02:23:44

They (eventually...) get in touch, via email. Sometimes it takes HOURS!!!!

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 02:24:21

They will post on the site stuff threads to say they are here. They don't reply personally to spam reports

DeepRedBetty Sun 03-Mar-13 02:24:55

Also the only thing likely to attract their attention at this time of night is telling them someone's finished the Gin.

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 02:25:14

Often they will send you an e-mail, but they're receiving so many reports about the spam that they are not sending e-mail responses.

mermaidbutmytailfelloff Sun 03-Mar-13 02:25:15

Oh lubey I need coffees now <drags her aching bones to the kettle>

MissBlennerhassett Sun 03-Mar-13 02:25:29

Yum, donuts! Could do with something sweet after rather too much spam.

GothAnneGeddes Sun 03-Mar-13 02:25:42

I have never seen spamming and trolling like this. It is not on.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:25:57

Oh, <little disappointed, wanted horns> To my own e-mither, or here? Blimey, it was hours ago it started.

exexpat Sun 03-Mar-13 02:27:13

I do wonder who would bother spammingMN with ads for live boxing etc- we're not an obvious target market. Could it possibly be the reference to 'fight club' in the AIBU talk guidelines has given someone the wrong impression...

Or could someone think it was a witty & clever thing to do? Maybe someone related to the trolls visitors with a couple of stupid threads in feminism at the moment.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:27:30

I have missed spam nonsense.

<don't know what spam is> Ahem.

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 02:27:51

The e-mail you registered your MN account with.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:31:18

Thanks ClayDavis

exexpat its the feminism ones I reported straight away <and then quietly amused meself baiting, slaps wrist> so they have bigger probs to solve then, cause I was suprised it is taking this long.

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 02:38:47

Just seen the threads you're talking about in feminism. I'd imagine you would get a response to those because its separate (and more serious I would have thought) than the spam problem.

If you want to know what spa is, just go to AIBU or baby names at the moment.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:40:40

Have just been and seen, wow.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:41:38

Anyway, nowt in inbox and coffee ready, who needs one?

Does anyone live near HQ? Fancy popping round and banging on the door?

IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 02:50:25

I think they may need more gin after this! Never seen spam this bad and I've been here over 6 years!

This is not helping my night feed browse!! angry

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 02:50:59

Would it help if we wafted gin in their direction?

I think it was about this time Tech appeared on Thurs night/Fri am to sort the spam issue. I'm not sure whether he can help with the troll issue though.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 02:54:37

I have some shite wine, and a packet of bennies,...will that lure them out?

<love that word...lure>

IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 02:58:36

Maybe we should tie a bottle of gin onto a fishing rod and lure them out with it? <sooooo bored>
