Spammer on the Limerick thread, of all places!!  At least tlks*** threw out a line, but one that did not have proper count or meter and did not even rhyme.  Its moniker is more poetic, not to mention apt.

And a spammy good morning to all! Today's fresh crop includes a post here in this very board, in fact--the better to entice the mods into buying some whey protein?

I have a $10 off coupon for whey protein at CVS I can send them--unless Vox wants it.

Alas, I am out of the country at the moment, with no CVS in sight! Maybe Yellowtractor would like it.

Do NOT give whey protein to a tractor ... it completely clogs up their fuel lines. You might just as well stick a potato up its exhaust.

Today is a very good example of why I'm so glad we have member mods. Despite being hit from all sides by spam, I know that it's getting cleaned up a million times faster than it would without their efforts.

Why can't they ever spam us with ads for useful stuff? You know, the grading robot, the inflatable professor who can give a lecture while you stay home, the remote zapper that delivers a mild shock to any student you raise an eyebrow at for texting during class.....

That's spam I'd be willing to tolerate.

Watch out what you wish for. Perhaps not useful but quite relevant, we just had spam for black market copies of instructor manuals, test banks, and solution manuals.
