Ahh... this is December 2010... either the system has had a major hic-up in bringing this thread back up to the top, or you need a new calendar...
It's neither Craig. It's a spammer who doesn't speak English. They copy and paste the same sentence in any forum they can find, over and over and over. Then they come back a few days later and edit the post to add the links to the spam. That way their spammed links go undetected but the bots and crawlers find them and bolster their own spam site ratings and they get new members and lurkers who might stumble across the links.
It's a little game that they play. There's no way to stop them or get rid of them, so I check daily for edits and then ban their spammer asses and delete the offending posts. For every spammer I ban, two more register as new members. As a matter of fact, this week we got a whole new bumper crop. I'm waiting for them to sprout.
over moderating would be a mistake..
at the magiccafé there is this idiot called tom cutts who keeps deleting every comment saying jim callahan is doing magic tricks..
which is quite dumb. since he is doing magic tricks.. he is at the MAGICCAFE after all.. ooh well..
I don't mean overmodding: just that the first post the person makes must be approved by a mod - that let's them see the spam posts and not approve them.
I think the modding here is pretty good: pretty well limited to insult spew like that Azeal guy, that would stay the same.
You do have to understand that this is one of the biggest reasons the cafe is viewed as being a laughing stock in the "real world" of magic and, for the real world pros, the perfect group of fools to fleece with their latest commercial brain fart... if those marks only knew how some of the major players really saw them and mocked them
For every one "legit" guy on that forum who really does know his stuff there's at least 12 that don't know squat but act as if they do... the Tom Cutts is one of the "higher than god" types that likes playing that game, but then Bill Palmer is one of the few moderators over there that meets the standards of being one of the "real world" workers... he's more than the real deal in my book -- a great guy!
I guess I need to go out and do some TV and get some high profile kudos so the great Mullet will invite me back... Callahan was viewed as the Devil's spawn for a good while I believe, one of the reasons he, BDC and a few others got together to revive Magic Talk... but hey, guys like us look at getting banned from that swill hole as a merit badge... Mark Lewis and I once held the high marks for getting found out and tossed off again
i dont believe i am hijacking the thread by talking about the magiccafe since this thread was created by a spammer
in any case..
yeah.. that tom cutts drives me crazy
since in a thread a while back they criticized him on his hipocrisy.. he started deleting every comment i made just because he was angry.. even the ones where i just said ¨that looks incredible¨.. it really doesnt matter. that is why it was laughable.
now i have found some old threads were i see the connection between dave koenig and cutts and callahan.. so it all makes sense...
and about steve´s brooks mullet.. common!.. i give him props in rocking a mullet 20 years after they went out of fashion.. and by the way if they ever do another mcgyver show.. they better bring the mullet back .
