The NoSpam and image verifications on the forums seem like an unneccesary waste of time, why are they there?

Think about the name NoSpam. Think really really hard. I mean hard, like if I punched you it would hurt me instead of you hard. Thats your answer.

Let me re-phrase then. How do they stop supposed "spam" I frequent forums much larger than this one and they don't have any of this "spam protection" and they all seem to be spam free. By the way, your smart-arsed reply is not appreciated.

You obviously overcame the horrendous waste of time (what, all extra 30 seconds... good lord, you might have died!) and signed up - I assume that you didn't sign up just to complain about the single extra stage in the signup procedure compared to some other forums (look at the GMod forums for an example of a truly time wasting sign up process).

This isn't a suggestion. 'Nuff said.

Well saying arse in this forum gets you kicked in the back of the head. Don't say it.

I'm not sure why I said that, I just thought it would be fun. Don't you be saying arse either. Yes, I know, you can say anything on these forums, which is awesome, but arse isn't a "cool" word.

it's cooler than "ass"...

Yes, but ass wasn't cool to start with. **** is probably the coolest.


Well, nevermind it blocked it. The world may never know what is the coolest word.

**** is still blocked?

Edit: Damn, it is. Go figure. It rhymes with 617's new move.

I'm actually surprised that **** is blocked... I thought I'd removed everything but the racist terms from the 'bad' list, ho hum.

You doubted me?

No. **** was blocked many moons ago. It was even brought to Ging's attention. I was surprised that it was still blocked, that's all.

That's good. I hoped I wasn't being doubted! Although, it NEEDS to be unblocked.

well i agree with Robin Williams... **** is a shitty word. but ******* is fine so what the hell?

Well, no, it doesn't...

Ditto. Unless we're quoting Lisa Lampanelli, it's not exactly a widely used (around here) word.
