    I have noticed a new lame fad of member status update spamming taking off recently.

    Guess what? I will warn and suspend anyone who does it, like I have done twice already today.

    That is all. This is your only warning.



    And with one fell swoop p1ngpong killed yet another shitty fad from GBAtemp.

    Question. What if someone requests you to spam their status?

    I don't quite understand what this means, were people spamming with comments on status updates, or were people posting status updates every 3 seconds like Facebook addicts?

    I think the solution is to just ban Black-Ice. Nothing of importance will be lost.

    Alright alright, better question which is probably better suited for @[member='tj_cool']

    To prevent this, could we not limit how many comments a person can make in an allotted amount of time and then restrict them from commenting until someone else comments? For example, 3 posts within 1 minute, then someone has to reply, then another 3 in 1 minute.

    It'd make it more of a bitch to do it, and could be potentially stopped as long as no one replies to it. Not sure if that's possible though...
