But I’ve looked through all the boxes, and even in the trash, and I don’t see one…
When the SDMB got spammed this morning at the crack of dawn, I thought it was perfectly thrilling, but later on I felt guilty for how much fun I was having, because I realized that TubaDiva and all the others were going to have to spend the morning wielding shovels and manure forks.
But anyway, I had the impression (I don’t know from where) that the MB came with some sort of a spam filter, that it grabbed all suspicious messages first so the moderators could look at them, and that that was why it sometimes takes so long to get a confirmation of a posting, because a computer at the other end is busy reviewing potential spam.
So, not true, eh? I’m disappointed. Do they even make something like that? An industrial-strength twit filter? Couldn’t they borrow Jeeves’ parser and retrofit something? (See, I read PC Magazine, I know all about computers…)
On the other hand, I am filled with admiration, because this means that the reason we all don’t have to look at spam is because the mods get up at cockcrow and delete them for us. 'Preciate it, folks!
