This is a post that ghost-quotes them so they'll be notified that the thread, although probably permanently marred, has reopened for business.

We live?



Nice job Lorreen. I saw those other threads in GD. That spammer sure had a lot of free time to set up that many posts...

I miss having wicked nightmares when I was a kid.

Last night I dreamed I got a terrible haircut. It was awful awful awful but also supremely boring.

Anyway that's what I've been waiting all day to say. Thanks Iorreen!

Anyone have a screenshot of that?

Haven't seen anything like this since the "Golden Era" of CR. "LAWL"

No screenshot, but this thread got off lucky. There was only a ten page gap in the end. A few threads (thankfully either very new or very old with no activity) ended up with more than a hundred blank pages in them--those I just closed, and folks can restart the new ones if they want. There was one weird case though were we were spared blank pages, and instead ended up with a wonky first page with "too many" posts, and new posts out of order.

All in all the spammer managed to generate thousands of new posts. All of them very boring. The problem was partly that mods weren't around when it started (we don't have constant 24/7 monitoring) and that the spammer was very, very, very fast. Ugh.

This thread reached all the way to page 9405 within only 3 minutes. Several other threads had it worse.

I honestly missed when people attacked the forums. It shows a bit of fun. But that's just me. "LAWL"

Going from the "Closed" section, they have a weird target list. Probably I'm maybe missing something, but yeah.

At least we didn't die, and for that I'll say thank you lorreen! It would be far too ironic if a spammer managed to kill this thread.

Now that I look at my history again, I think the spammer broke the thread with all those simultaneous posts. The page numbers were something like 9239 to somewhere in the early 9300's, then it jumped all the way to 9400-9405. At first I thought it was only about 60 pages and just now I realized there were like a hundred pages missing in between. And that was before the posts were reported and Lorreen showed up.

It's about time. Now I just need to wait nearly a week to get a heart.
