Well people at least be aware of them!

Lynn, leave them spidergates wide open! Ride them spiders high, yeehaw!
Actually, I never just *do* something, I always try to discuss it with Staff first. So, I brought up the Spiders with them yesterday and this morning, every mod who responded agreed that we should close the doors to the Spiders in the Where We Go To Play forums. So, if you log out right now, you will not be able to see those forums.

Thanks for the info. I've been curious about them for a while but didn't want to bother Lynne with a "what are these things?"

My apologies Lynn...my "sense of humor" is very strange (actually I am not sure if it can be called a "sense" at all, "nonsense" may be a better description.). I most admire the kind of humor displayed by the recently deceased great American humorist Kurt Vonnegut, who in turn was especially influenced by the late French author Ferdinand CÚline (who in his turn aspired to write his dark humorist prose "on the cusp of the plane of delirium").

So please excuse my excess in the name of humor (exaggeration being a pillar of humor)...I want to emphasize that I never once doubted your good intentions, your judgment or your sincerity.

Re: Help!! Spiderbots crawling on my Threads!!!

All is good, Guy. Sometimes I post just to make a point to others who are reading a thread. Sometimes people seem to think that I 'rule' this site, but I try hard not to make that so. Sure, I'm the one who knows how the software works and all that, but I try to always get input from Staff before I 'do' anything.

edit: And you just reminded me that I want to steal that Vonnegut book from my son!

I went with option #2. (Couldn't understand option #1).

One more time I say this is a very interesting topic that may affect everyone living in this planets, despite our different geographical locations and/or cultural gaps.

So, here's to the management' quick reaction!

I vote that the only page the spiders should be able to see is the homepage.

If you check the wayback machine that is exactly the approach taken by "Sharing the Groove"

You are quite welcome

I also like your Zepenita quote. Here is my own answer,

"Trumbull County: Area of Ohio partially containing the former Congressional District of the Honorable James Traficant, Congressman for Life until the FBI finally took him down. Free James Traficant! Now Beam Me Up!

PS: I say make it private whether there is something to hide or not.
It's a club that is members only.OUR club
What is typed is typed for members only
All torrents are private passkey for members only.


That says that it should be all private for members only to me

I dont remember seeing "Itsy Bitsy" as a member so no goodies..or baddies should be revealed until you are a member i feel.

Just my 2 cents

No K_K, you are wrong...good "SWAG" though ("Stupid Wild-Assed Guess", in your case)

BTW, what is your middle name? Does it begin with a K? Does rhyme with "Queunt"?

Well no matter, KKK wannabe fondler of Bush's Ball's, whatever gets you though your night.

(Sigh...another typical TTD thread...ends in senseless insults...me as guilty as "KKK"...what else is new...vote in the poll, say goodbye to this stupid thread, I sure as hell will)

Exactly my point K_K, it seems impossible to have a conversation here without it turning into some form of "oneupsmanship". OK, good one...I am the fool here...why does that make you feel better?

Re: Help!! Spiderbots crawling on my Threads!!!

It wasn't a case of "oneupmanship" chap.
I gave my thourghts to your thread subject and joshed with a sentence that you quoted like a buddy drinking with you in a bar that came back with a one liner.

I am only sorry that typed words do not show expression or tone of how it would be said well enough.

Mis-interpretation is all that is at fault here.

Ha! I seem to be getting oversensitive in my old age, like some kind of damned grandmother! (Now I am waiting for an army of grandmothers to attack me...Good! It will be more female attention than I've had in ages )
