That is completely understandable.

After taking Saturday off - that's what they do each week, they are back today - so just a heads up for those that have not seen this thread yet.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

These posts annoy the crap out of me! There are mornings that I come on and this is all that I see. I have reported a few in my time here.

Is there not a way to prevent new users from posting for say 24 hours or something? If they were not able to post right away would they really stay around?

The delay will definitely help, but the downside is that a lot of new Mac owners will have to wait and can't get the immediate help that they might need..

No real way around spammers..they always try to find a way to get through..

Rest assured, we're working on it. If you think seeing the ads is annoying, imagine being the one that has to clean up after them.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Oh, I know that we have the easy part of reporting it to you. Kudos to you for the great job on the cleanup. I have noticed that after I report one they are always gone in a matter of minutes.

You guys do good work here.

Without going anywhere near the site itself, this may make interesting reading for those who've contributed to this thread Tnsale.com Tnsale - Whois Lookup, IP and domain Whois information. So, Tom, unfortunately, all your friends in Texas will have to travel to China to deal with these tnsale marauders.
