    Yes, we have no moderators. We have no moderators today.
    And there is little hope of ever getting any.

    A world unconstrained.

    It's a little experiment to see what percentage of humans had bad parents, subsequently no respect, no decency, no conscience.

    Most of the "spam" on this site is the result of a single, disgruntled & mentally ill individual who uses innumerable aliases as a result of his egregious abuse of his employer's VPN. Even if we had an active moderator it is unlikely that they could put an end to this whacko's nonsense.
    It is easily enough ignored........

    My brain sees it as pop-ups on a web-page, and easily filters it out. I find the petty psychology of it amusing.

    If you actually wanted to stop it (because there is more than just David), it takes some front end administration and a couple of people to approve join requests to stop the autobots. You set probationary periods. The other method is a monetary verification of insignificance to the user but expensive at bot scale. Would you pay $1 a month for a filter? That's Elon's ultimate scheme with X.

    Best way to hurt him 'back in the day', I'd think still applies....don't give him what he's actually truly seeking: - attention.

    I rather enjoy Spam. In fact it is currently on sale at Costco. I get the healthy kind with low sodium.

    You know, I've never tried Spam. And I am 73 years old. Thats a long time to not try it.
    The only Spam that I've enjoyed is the Monty Python version.

    But seriously folks, these spam-ers are terrible. Be they here or on my phone or email or texts. I don't like them
    and would not patronize them.

    I did a project in Hawaii where I was surprised to learn that they eat a lot of Spam. I kid you not, they make sushi with Spam. Handrolls with Spam down the middle as if it were the fish of your choice. And nigiri, a nice little brick of rice topped with a slice of Spam held together with a little ribbon of nori. It's also very common to use an automatic rice cooker to make a big pot of rice with peas, scrambled egg, and, of course, chopped up bits of Spam all mixed in. Yum. When it comes to Spam, Hawaiians are totally unmoderated.

    In fact, the Hawaiian market is the largest per-capita consumer market for Spam in the world. Go into any grocery store, large or small, and you are likely to see an end-cap or stand-alone display of more varieties of Spam than you knew existed. The 'delicacy' variety that has a piece of Spam between layers of rice is Spam musubi. And it is delicious.

    I took this at random on one of our visits; we have family on the islands:

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    This no longer looks unusual to me!
    (Although I still don't eat a lot of Spam, my daughter does love her Spam musubi!)

    Maybe there's a causal relationship between age and not eating spam.

    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'

    As a member of the septuagenarian cohort I think not.
    Even though after all this time I'm still not sure exactly what it is.

    Jon, having been mostly a vegetarian all my adult life, that wall of Spam makes me shudder!!! Not surprising as I also don't care for Hawaii.

    As a non-vegetarian, I find that wall of Spam amazing. What a selection. Even spam-lite. It almost makes me want to try some Spam.
    And Zeptrax's receipt of rice, peas, scrambled eggs and spam sounds good.

    Haha, we lived in Hawaii and visit a couple times a year. I have to admit, when we are there Masubi is my favorite breakfast. We also make them at home as you can buy the Masubi molds to help make the rice into the correct shape on Amazon. My wife has a yummy glaze she uses for the Spam. We have two kids, 2 and 4, who also think it's a tasty treat.

    The locals use the Spam can itself to shape the rice.
