All I can do is apologize. Some young Russian or Nigerian teenager has decided that SF is where s/he will make their mark. In the meantime Mom was the only one with both the apprpriate admin powers and know-how to deal with it. We're waiting for the owner to show up soon to help deal with this.

So you mean I will not be receiving my share of a $100 million dollar bank account after I wired $10,000 as a transfer fee to that poster?

No, that one is totally kosher. No worries there. The Ugg boots and the year's supply of cyalis are not coming, though. Sorry.

damn, and i was really looking forward to watching a bunch of butterflies hatch from their mid-metamorphic stage.

SCMom had the full gamut of modship controls. for some reason, rico's and mine were altered/ set up funny, where we're like yin and yang. i can delete posts but not ban the poster and vice versa.

many times lately i have just sat and watched a troll or spammer and deleted each post with in seconds of being posted until they eventually just go away.

it makes the job twice as difficult so please bear with us.

I've been meaning to ask what happened to this place. During my last stint of activity on SF things looked promising. Huge user base with many very active users and no spam. I assume Mike (He was the owner, right?) has gone missing? It seems like an unfortunate task the remaining mods have been left with.
