I have no idea why, but we've seen an increase in playtime spam. Running up posts, Pokeman? posts and just general senseless post. I've got an itchy trigger finger and have dispensed with all them. Why the increase? I have no idea.

I think maybe part of it is the waiting for 3G and 2.0 and App Store etc. - and all the wild rumors on all of these to wade through - got everyone a little out of sorts.

Agree with the praise of the itchy finger too ...

Thanks, chris!

Yeah, they do seem to come in waves. And, like Patrick, I think this is due to waiting for WWDC, and THEN having to wait again for actual release. Boredom breeds mischief.

Just come check out Aggie and I in the chatroom some lazy Friday afternoon for proof ;)

Same here, I thought maybe Apple was releasing a new product, or something new with the Air.

I um. . . . . . . . I. . . .agree...with iCafe on this one, cause with the site getting more attention were gonna get attacked more by these spammers. But generally we have a loyal member base and I'm sure anyone thats already here arent gonna pull a Benedick Arnold on us for some random reason ya kno.

We Will Survive, what doesn't kill us will only make us stronger ;)
-Or something like that hehe. ..

Now it's "thanks" madness. Wow, are these all coming from the same IP, chris?
