    I'm having a heck of a job using MSE at the moment, every page is very slow to load.
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    It's a bit like buying a broken telly to replace your broken telly..Seems like a waste of time to me. Still what do I know?

    Nope, you are indeed correct

    It's MSE's latest wheeze for stopping the spam

    I must say its working, I've only reported about 50 today

    To be fair, and reading between the lines, I think they have had a huge problem recently, and are trying to solve it.


    I think they said that they can't warn too much or the spammers get prior knowledge of what they're up to.

    I think there is some sabotage of the site going on.

    I daresay they are doing their best, and given that this site is all free, maybe we should just be patient?
