              silly deanjo. some here wont know what that is and now you are going to make them google it until they reach a page on Wikipedia explaining it.

              Wasting precious internet resources.

                Lol, a few of my buddies moved to England for a few years and were craving Clamato. They searched for the longest time to find some and found a food import shop that carried it. They wound up buying the entire lot, went back to the pub and drank caesers all day.

                    Just cut down the time that allows users to edit posts... To 1 Minute. So this might fix it.

                      Hi Michael, would you consider removing this?

                      I often find I need to go back and edit posts,
                      or delete some that have become superfluous in the context of the current debate.

                      I have found this forum flexible/useful in that regard.
                      Tis a shame to see it go, damn spammers!

                        Once I find out whether this method works or not, I will make changes accordingly (i.e. make a plug-in so that only new users under five posts have a one minute edit limit).

                          Sigh, okay that's understandable, thanks.
                          IMO spammers should rate up there with child molesterors.
