Absolutely, I had a young girl almost hit me the other day because she was talking on her cell phone and not paying attention.

this will automerge...

another thing that grinds my gears is having to wait...

I guess I'm waiting out of principal, but there are 3 blatent spammers online right now.
http://computerforums.org/member.php?u=50790
http://computerforums.org/member.php?u=48965
http://computerforums.org/member.php?u=49449

it's just obvious that they are spammers, they've got spam links in their signatures, joined ages ago and made no posts. profile info makes no sense...

and they are creating threads at the moment in the general electricals section...

I've literally got the mod control panel open, with their names already entered just waiting to hit ban...

but out of principal I don't think that I want to ban someone before they've even made a post, -I mean what if they aren't actually spammers?

but they've been creating a thread for a half hour now!!

I'm hatin' the waitin'

hmmm... they seemed to have not created their threads after all...

http://www.freelancer.com/projects/P...ot-Needed.html
People pay to do spamming thats really annoying to see that they would go that far
Description
The project is to make 100 posts with a signature with my link per forum, on 5 forums. In total, it will be 500 posts. I will give you the 5 forums that I want you to make the posts on.

Anchor text and links will be provided for use in your signatures.

Keep the following records:
1. Name of forum or blog
2. Login
3. Password
4. Exact location of link
5. Date Link Placed.

Requirements:

* Manual Posting ONLY - No use of software

* Make 8 posts PER forum, PER day. That means you will be making 40 posts PER DAY, and the project should be finished in 13 days.

* Each post must be at least 30 words in length and in good proper English, RELEVANT to the thread. Do not misspell words.

* The posts cannot start a thread; they must be replies to existing threads and must be related to threads without creating spam posts.

You get added as a friend on Facebook by someone you don't know but you give them the benefit of the doubt.

She starts commenting on your posts, small conversations, and generally having a laugh with you, and you have a laugh back, just fun.

After finding out I have a girlfriend she stops the comments and conversations although she hasn't deleted me as a friend.

WTF!!!

yes, i've stopped using firefox.

my spelling is atrocious, usually the built in firefox spell checker would have noted that mistake for me. -and yes, that is the only way that I've had good posts in the past that are free from spelling errors.

got to find a spell checker for IE now.

I ditched FF too for the same reason.

Chrome is great. Now it handles Flash and has a spell checker too.
