  1. I just wanted you guys at talkbass to know that I'm sorry for egging on those a-holes that attempted to sabatoge our forums. I had thought that by egging them on that they'd concentrate more on me and in essence stall some time till the mods could do something. Apparently that took a lot more time than I had hoped, so instead, I ended up looking pretty damned stupid.

    I just felt pretty sure it'd be right to take some action rather than just sitting back and watching the forums overflow. Well, hopefully there won't be a next time anytime soon and at least then, I'll know how to react. But now that its over, its pretty funny, but it's good its over.
  2. Don't sweat it, man. Luckily we seem to be pretty good by now at handling it, by ignoring them until Paul or the mods arrive.

    We're in luck though, Paul was on in only fifteen minutes or so after it started. :)

    i sent them P.M. telling them how i felt about what they were doing and how we here at TB dont appreciate pulling stupid stints like that. it was derogatory but it was asertive to say the least.i did'nt want to get into a pissing match with whoever it was so i did personally(which is always more fun):D Iknow i'm not perfect and i sometimes say dumb stuff and end up getting some razzing but i dont intentionally write fake threads which attempt to infuriate others(well sometimes i dont;) )you get the point. so next time lets all ignore them and hopefully they will fall of the face of the earth:bassist: PS.whats a thwaap anyway ?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I must have missed this whole episode as I have no idea what happened. :confused:
  5. ah......lol..basically a bunch of jerks ( at least 2 kids) started spamming up the site just putting up threads only saying Thwap, but to the point where the server was being slowed down and they overwhelmed the forums with the crap.

    It was pretty funny because at one point you coudl tell they ran out of ideas, and that's when I started to post counter threads making fun of them, egging them on to stall some time...lol..... but its good that it is over.

    its done to slow the site down huh?(note to self, put this in the vault for later use)all kidding aside it is annoying and stupid,but when i was a kid i did far worse,good thing there was'nt the internet when i was young or i'd be in jail now FOR A LONG TIME:rolleyes:
  7. I copied Anbassist by adding a bs reply to alot of old bass related threads fast and creating new ones. It was working for a bit, but only in one forum at a time and i couldn't keep it up. Merlin tried to help too, but after i stopped.
