Re: George RR Martin - when did his writing go downhill?

I guess I don't remember being as put-off by the sex in the first three. It didn't seem to dominate the story so much. Now I guess it's just so predictable that EVERY character has some sort of sex life, voluntary or not and it doesn't always have anything to do with the story or the character's dev...

George RR Martin - when did his writing go downhill?

So, I'm reading the fourth book of the Song of Ice and Fire series, A Feast for Crows. It's taking me *forever* to get through this book, and I only recently realized why. It's because I find the book so frustratingly repetitive, slow, and annoying like softcore porn (or, what I imagine such would b...

Re: Spam problems lately

Not to be a pain but.... is there any way to make those activate account e-mails not come to me? I got nearly 40 "activate new user account" emails when I opened my inbox today, lol.

Re: Spam problems lately

Hello all. Sorry I've not been around lately.

Re: Hoping you are ok Azzy

Hey everyone! Thanks for the concern. Praise God I am alright and so is Simon. Kabe (where I live) is about 280 miles away from the epicenter. School was in session when it hit here, but all the kids were at a park near the school for PE class, and so they were all safe. We were a little shaken by t...

Tolkien estate demands destruction of novel about J.R.R.T.

Apparently someone has written a novel where Tolkien is the central character. The Tolkien estate is not pleased :lol: Seems like a person should be allowed to include a dead historical figure in their writings. Has the Tolkien estate gone too far? http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/feb/26/mirkwoo...

Re: Spam problems lately

Geez they're relentless. I thought after making email confirmation necessary and banning a few IP ranges that'd help. It seemed to work for a while.
I just don't understand it. They know nobody is gonna click the links, what do they even get out of it?

Re: Spam problems lately

Got rid of some more today. I also enabled user authentication, so before they can post they have to check their email and click the verification link. AND I banned an IP range that seems to be cropping up a lot. There's a Ukrainian host called ukrtel.net that seems to be what a lot of the spammers ...

Re: Spam problems lately

I used to have a board and ALL the spammers there were from Russia. I never had one legit person sign up from Russia, that's why I think it's probably safe to IP ban the whole country (if possible)

Re: Spam problems lately

Hehe thanks Shireling I'm pretty excited as well. Looking at honeymoon options now. They're limited because of our visa restrictions but it looks like we might be going to the US Virgin Islands. Woohoo! Just cleared out 6 more spammers. They're pretty much all Russian. I wonder if we can just ban al...
