97 ?!! Good grief. I saw it filled up the whole five slots of the Forum home page, but didn't look further. What do these people think that kind of spam is going to gain them, anyway!?

Sam, did you report it at all? Hope the webmaster will take care of it ASAP.

I'm sure a lot of reports have been sent in but weekends are a problem.

I grew up watching Monty Python on the Public Television network here. Maybe that's why my sense of humor has always been a bit off and I like BBC TV so much. :-)

anyone have any theories on why someone feels the compulsion to demonstrate their brains are made of the brown stuff that fell from the south end of a northbound mule?

Presumably (hopefully?) someone at RS has your tech savvy to take preventative measures as you suggest

Edgar,

Spamasubi is definitely a hawaiian cultural thing! They sell it in 7/11's etc. Lived there for 5 years - my son used to get so mad because that's all the parents would bring for snacks at his ball games:)

Nigel - OMG sooooo hilarious!!! and creative:)

I hope the folks at RS can figure out a way to stop this stupid spam!

A long time ago it was suggested that trusted members could be entrusted to quarantine or delete obvious spam when the office is shut.

It was declined.

Not sure what Nigel was sipping when he wrote the conversation between the waitress and the customer, but I'd sure like to have a little of it.

That's too bad, Nigel, as the longer it sits there, the more emboldened the scoundrels can become. Give 'em an inch, ya know?

Not sure what Nigel was sipping when he wrote the conversation between
the waitress and the customer,

TC, that is the script of a CLASSIC Monty Python sketch.

Kathy, Was not aware of that sketch. Thanks for the enlightenment.

to muck around with the words of a 1960s protest song which I love, if you don't know that sketch what other sketches don't you know?

Surely you are aware of the Dead Parrot Sketch and the Lumberjack Song? Buttered scones for tea?

And remind folks that "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition."

The Dead Parrot Sketch makes me laugh every time I think of it.

Nigel,

With regard to the 1960s (and 70s), it's been said that if one remembers the '60s and '70s one really didn't experience them.

Sketch was hilarious.
