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>

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:01:14

Is that why they don't acknowledge cause you don't have gin...have malibu, where are they?

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:01:21

I live near HQ, shall I mosey on down with some biscuits?

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

What kind of biscuits? I made some melting moments today, fucking gorgeous.

What the actual fuck is going on?

There are apparently only three 'real' threads in the entire of Active Convos. Not really sure what the point of it is.

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:06:03

I have 3 varieties of biscuits before me- yes, 3, plus muffins

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:06:56

Maybe HQ are too busy watching it live.....
my eyes hurt confused

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:07:30

Fucking Hell cafecito you are prepared! May I enquire as to the varieties before you?

IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 03:21:41

Can I share some biscuits? Am stuck under sleeping 12 week old ds2 who is currently refusing the crib. And there's bugger all in active condos coz of these stupid spammers!!!

IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 03:22:19

Condos? Maybe I should sleep more hmm

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:23:55

Well I have some bisciuts I made, but I ate them, so I have rummaged and have 4 maltesers and some fudge....not that enticing, but free to a good home.

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:27:05

the biscuits are M&S extremely chocolatey ginger biscuits, dark choc, and some double choc cookies, and some florentines.. the muffins are quite wonderful, fresh fruit inside, yumminess. The 3 bars of chocolate were rather nice too blush [past tense]

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:28:34

Gis a muffin, have just started another thread and am now worried that I have to rob a load of gin for HQ.

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:28:58

I am starting my sugar detox today - having literally lived on biscuits for the past 2 weeks, it's necessary.

Maybe MNHQ would respond if I offer them the wine in my kitchen?

coppertop Sun 03-Mar-13 03:30:13

A thread with food?

<shuffles in for the wait>

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:30:41

my favourite muffin, is raspberry white chocolate - huge raspberries inside. the raspberry/blueberry are good too, as are the apple, cinnamon, ginger.. and the toffee banana...

see, sugar detox.. long overdue..

still no HQ?

IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 03:31:34

I think MNHQ have been spoilt in wealthier times and are not adjusting well to having to be thrifty. The gin is this on the ground these days and it is now starting to affect their productiveness! wink

I want muffins and biscuits now!

SavoyCabbage Sun 03-Mar-13 03:32:33

There are millions of them! In every topic going. Why would we want to watch Portland play football?

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:32:47

I'm imagining the Saturday night shift HQ as not interested in gluten free fresh fruit muffins, or delectable dark chocolate florentines, but more so in wkd blue and staggering to a kebab shop on their way back to HQ...

kebab? <wafty smell of dubious origin>

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:34:40

I have snaffled the maltesers, bit airy inside and not satisfactory, is there some sort of do going on that they are all at? Just acknowledgement of my <hours ago> reports would be nice.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Sun 03-Mar-13 03:35:30

Blimy, it's ridiculous. It's going to be like a movie - Techinator Rise against the Spambots.

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:37:14

maybe this is. the end. shock


IsThatTrue Sun 03-Mar-13 03:37:17

The boy is in his crib but I cba to go downstairs for food!


cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:38:42

maybe Tech has gone on strike over working conditions?

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

Who needs feeding, can I post chinese chicken noodle soup? Got loads left over,(not cause its shit, cause I made a humungus panfull) (I think)

coppertop Sun 03-Mar-13 03:41:47

Tech's gone on strike until they upgrade his shed.

This is all he has. sad

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:44:48

Am actually highly amused now that they haven't replied or even acknowledged any of the reports/threads here, they must be at IT.


Chubfuddler Sun 03-Mar-13 03:48:59

Is this thread all the actual chat going on then? Wtf happened to active convos?

cafecito Sun 03-Mar-13 03:51:39

poor Tech

maybe we should be joining the spamming in solidarity for Tech

that might get some responses

Chubfuddler Sun 03-Mar-13 03:53:57

Tbh the spam bot hasn't got a hope of keeping up with the rate of MN posting during daylight hours.

Chorusforpoormortals Sun 03-Mar-13 03:56:05

Thats probably why its happening now, but am pissed off its on my night off!

Chubfuddler Sun 03-Mar-13 03:57:47

Right well I'm here, and apart from AIBU which I hide I am happy to talk shit about any topic. You post, I'll follow around the boards.

SavoyCabbage Sun 03-Mar-13 04:00:19

Well I tried to bump some other stuff but the spam is bumping itself faster than I can bump.

Chubfuddler Sun 03-Mar-13 04:02:32

Fuel tv has a twitter account, anyone fancy telling them to sod off?

OmiQueenofTypose Sun 03-Mar-13 04:22:02

Wow, the spam confused my poor sleep-deprived brain. I was all slow and blinky for a minute.

All this talk of food is making me peckish. We are running low on everything, but might go rustle up a hot chocolate. If ds lets me leave his side...

OmiQueenofTypose Sun 03-Mar-13 04:33:49

I'm on my phone, otherwise I'd just hide the spammed topics. Although I've already got aibu hidden.

Poor MNHQ. Tucked up fast asleep, all unaware of what will greet them when they wake.
