When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

But without being able to greet spambots, what will you do?  Won't your entire reason for existence become a dry, desolate wasteland of meaninglessness?  Maybe you can take up knitting.

No, not entirely, I will move onto to asking you to explain jokes to me instead, although I have already started it anyway. ;)

I think I should join the military to be a spotter for a sniper, cuz I seem to have a knack for always being around when the spam gets posted. I just fired off yet another report a minute ago

Yeah, it started out extremely annoying, but I'd be lying if I said it hadn't become mildly entertaining in the interim.

You're nuts.  I'm tired of playing whack-a-mole.  I must delete 30-50 spammer accounts a day.  I'm screening all the new joins and almost all of them are spammers.

Clearly, the thing to do is make Frost be in charge of deleting all spammers.  And every time one gets through, an automated hammer bonks him on the head.   :wacko:
