Give up

Postby craigevil » 2012-08-29 15:54

Until an admin chooses to fix the forum, I give up. We cannot ban spammers all we can do at this point is move the post to the spam forum.

I suggest if you have real questions or problems to ask at a different forum like
Debian User Forums - http://www.debianuserforums.org/
LinuxQuestions.org - https://www.linuxquestions.org/

Or use irc where the Debian gurus hangout,
oftc or freenode and ask in #debian
or if you are running wheezy or sid in #debian-next on oftc


Good luck and my the force be with you!

oh: lol.
I have come to realize that then no more moderators are here. I think. If right: that sounds like fun ... :-)
hell breaks loose ... or perhaps not.

no kidding: thanks for all your effort, craigevil.
yes, we disagree, often, but that is a different point.

Why do you say that?

I see Absent Minded has not posted anything in months but who says he is not moderating?

What about saulgoode then? He has logged in today.

Sincere thanks to all of you who have tried to keep the peace and sanity...

:D
The Forum's search box is terrible. Use site specific search, e.g.

What craigevil is saying is that there is now one fewer person "dealing" with it.

I don't blame him. He does a thankless job, and does it well. And 90%+ of the time, all he gets for his trouble is crap.

I hate to see him "throw in the towel," but I certainly understand why he feels as he does, and I respect his decision (even if I don't like it, for purely selfish reasons).

telling the obvious, but i think your chances are higher (hire?) in the IRC channel:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=47049
Much higher.
Didn't a channel for staff exist too?

PS: Well, in case you want that. I think pm's, emails and a forum annoncement is more than enough.

@craigevil
what if you as a last resort consider handing over your complete identity to a successor? i mean, when there is nobody on board with the permissions to relieve you from your duties, passing them over to someone else will be a reasonable consequence. (no, i do not mean me! you can trust me there.)

personally i wouldn't even object to a clandestine operation. we're probably all of us old enough to be able to live with a "benevolent dictatorship" and not insist on the farce of a democratic election.

Some admins are alive in irc at least.

I feel the forum needs some longer term or active members to step up to the plate so I’ve just asked to become a spam buster :shock: I've been thinking about it for a long time at and like many others here have shirked a bit. We'll see if I'm required, wanted etc

Anybody want to buy some cheap generic Viagra ? :D Errrrr ... it might not work all the time and/or someone may only get 1/2 of an erection but it's cheap + generic .. whattaya expecting darn it ? If you have an erection (or 1/2) an erection that lasts for more than 4hrs ... call your doctor.

Ok .... so a spam joke is probably outta line in this thread. Haven't been visiting this forum long enough to know much about it. Obviously many folks expressing concerns with spam. Am not all that worried about it, most the time from what I've seen it's easy to spot and don't bother reading it, shrugs. Volunteering is voluntary, if it pisses ya off or gives too many headaches +1 on screw it anyway.

I volunteered to help hunt spam, since there was that much of it... and so far have heard nothing but stony silence.
Perhaps it's out of line for a relatively new user, but I thought I'd try to help.
