    YouSpam?

    Submitted for your ... er ... um ... amusement?

    Now they're just rubbing it in:

    And there's an even better punch line: Those redacted links? They're YouTube. Yes, now even YouTube is spamming us. From France.

    Personally, I think we should simply strike further posting of YouTube links. And suppress discussion of Drake, Missy Elliott, and Lil Kim. But that won't have the desired effect, so it's futile.

    But do remember: YouTube is spamming your community. And their spammer is even insulting us.

    So, hey, YouTube, don't like our site's performance? Then stop being part of the problem! I know, I know. It's not actually your fault. It's some French SEO jackass. But you have no problem pulling videos from your site when a music publishing company fraudulently asserts ownership, so try spending some of your resources protecting your name. Because, you know, you're YouTube, and it's never your fault, is it?

    What are "user notes"?
    How can they be created, who gets to create them, who gets to see them?
    Is this something like the post-it tool?

    If you click on a user's name, and then in the left column in their profile -

    wynn
    Send Private Message
    User Notes (0)
    Find latest posts
    Find latest started threads
    .


    Thank you.

    Um ... er ... right

    In truth, I have no idea. Just in the few minutes since I read your post, I've been trying to find them, and, to be honest, I'm not seeing anything about them.

    These are in the user profile?

    (I was going to test the user notes, but, no, I cannot even find them. What am I missing?)

    Thread "http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?118697-Economist-Caution-Prepare-For-Massive-Wealth-Destruction" of B&E is being flooded with un moderated first posts 6 to 8 in last two days. Why has moderation failed to keep them from appearing? I ban the posters. Stop accepting new members until fixed or do something - I will not keep doing this much longer. Are they all coming from the same IP?

    That's an error. It shouldn't be happening. We're not sure what the problem is yet, but it may have something to do with posting links.

    What's with the "list of people who have read this thread"? Can we get rid of that?

    It's something that users with more than 1000 posts can see, if you're interested.

    Yes we can get rid of it if enough of our Valued Senior Members don't want it.

    If it really worries you, try starting a thread in Open Government (with a poll).

    It's a feature I appreciate, myself. It's helpful to see who's read the thread even when they have not replied.
