Possible Alternative Situation: If we attract too much of the wrong attention, we end up with spam-bots and rule-breakers who would turn this place into a garbage dump, or use up all of the admins' time in their attempts.

I briefly hosted my own backwoods, highly-specialized message board, the only links to which existed on a backwoods Wikipedia page and a backwoods Google Group. It's unbelievable how much bot traffic I was constantly having to fend off.

I'm not a web hosting expert or web designer, nor have I ever administered a website before. But I suspect that that's likely due to the fact that bots are usually run tandem to spiders, which are enumerating every single link on every page, and then visiting each of those pages, and repeating the process. If your message board was technically able to be indexed by Google or any other search engine, I feel like it'd be quite easy for the spider to find your message board, regardless of how obscure it was for the ordinary person. At that point, it comes down to the bot protections you have in place (CAPTCHAS, etc), and the type of message board software you're using, if you didn't code it yourself. Or maybe you simply needed someone constantly blocking and kicking bots like Cain, here.  :lol:
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature.

We already get a lot of bots.  However someone deletes most of them at the signup stage.

I'd help, but I don't have permission to delete unapproved accounts.

Yeah, no, the person constantly blocking and kicking was me, and the captchas from that particular board implementation were probably easier than a prom queen.

It makes sense that spiders would make no qualms about going anywhere and everywhere. When you think like a robot, all of the web is fair game. Actually, speaking of Google indexing, old threads in this forum pop up as number one under certain searches. To be fair, the search that led me straight back here was "Upright Citizens Brigade Discordian".

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

If someone does the ďFine, youíre right, Iím clearly a terrible person, Iím Satan, Iím the worst person alive, I should just dieĒ thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

this is why i'm sincerely hoping we colonize a planet in my lifetime. It's the only semi-possible escape i can see from this madness.

If we can't get our shit together here, we won't be able to get our shit together anywhere else, either. I'm not sure what that would accomplish besides fucking up more planets (which aren't really even ours to fuck up in the first place).

yeah, duh. But imagine the interplanetary football rivalries!
