questions and please don't post ads.
On what do you base that statement? Having used sh, csh, ksh (my personal favourite), and bash, I would be interested in knowing what you think is 'insane' about them.
If you don't understand a piece of software it's not really the software's fault. Buy a book..
Now is it bad enough that you let somebody else kick your butts without you trying to do it to each other? Now if we're all talking about the same man, and I think we are... it appears he's got a rather growing collection of our bikes.
As you know there is a constant flow of spammers on the site so all hands would be welcome to report unwanted activity.
Why not let the admin handle the problem in the first place?
One thing is that all the time they use for spam hunt is time away from resolving other issues. Users like us cannot help on too many things but reporting spammers is something we can do.
Does it take much time?
That is up to you but the fact is the more hands we have the less time is required. Protectors and other members constantly report new posts or users so just flagging the reported items has the biggest impact. As you can imagine this does not take too much time.
Is it spam or not?
You do not need to report anything you are uncertain of. If a post looks valid to you just ignore it. Of course you can also post a message explaining that the reported item looks valid to you.
So if you have time do visit 'Spam and Abuse Watch' every once in a while.
So I'm complete noob in web programming, but my idea is to write a script which does help me to go through such a list. I don't mean a script which automatically reports, I mean a script which leads me through the links. I remember before decades there was something like greecemonkey, I stringly assume the are better ways available today
Any Idea/Input fro me how I can do something like a "Report wizard"?
