So--- do to the amount of spam that's been showing up lately, registration is now required for posting.

Sorry about that... it's worked for years the other way, but those who feel the Internet is merely a way to inflict their spam upon us seem to have to make it worse for all of us.

Idea OTOH, now we're going to have a lot less of those "oh yeah, that was me" posts.

--- The management.

Sometime back when we had a big bout of spam, and there was discussion of whether to go to regestered posting only, Jay said he never posts to boards that require login for posting.

So, I hope he loves us more than that, ya know, because I'd miss his wit and intelligence

jsut for you hun:

Spam in the place where I live (ham and pork)
Think about nutrition, wonder what's inside it now (oh boy)
Spam in my luchbox at work (it's the best)
Really makes a darn good sandwhich any way you slice it at all

If you're running low, go to the store
Carry some money to help you buy more
The tab is there to open the can
The can is there to hold in the spam

Oh, spam on the table at home (ham and pork)
Think about selection, are there different flavors now (let's eat)
Spam in my office at work (it's the best)
Think about the stuff its made from, wonder if it's mystery of meat

If you need a spoon, keep one around
Carry a thermose to help wash it down
Now, if there's some left, don't just throw it out
Use it for spackle or bathroom grout, now

Spam in my pantry at home (have some more)
Think of expiration, better read the lable (oh boy)
Spam breakfast, dinner, or lunch (it's the best)
Think about how it's been precooked, wonder if I'll just eat it cold

Now, once you start in, you can't put it down
Don't leave it sitting or it'll turn brown
The key is going to open the tin
The tin is there to keep the spam in

Oh, spam (spam)
Ham and pork
Think about nutrition, wonder what's inside it now (oh boy)
Spam (spam)
It's the best
Really makes a darn good sandwhich any way you slice it

Spam in the place where I live (have some more)
Think about addiction, wonder if I'm a junkie now (let's eat)
Spam in the place where I work (you're obsessed)
Think about the way it's processed, wonder if it's some kind of meat

Spam in the back of my car (ham and pork)
Spam any place that you are (ham and pork)
The tab is there to open the can (spam any place that you are) (ham and pork)
The can is there to hold in the spam (spam any place that you are) (ham and pork)

and lets never forget:

Spam - Monty Python
Lovely spam, wonderful spa-a-m,
Lovely spam, wonderful S Spam,
Spa-a-a-a-a-a-a-am,
Spa-a-a-a-a-a-a-am,
SPA-A-A-A-A-A-A-AM,
SPA-A-A-A-A-A-A-AM,
LOVELY SPAM, LOVELY SPAM,
LOVELY SPAM, LOVELY SPAM,
LOVELY SPA-A-A-A-AM...
SPA-AM, SPA-AM, SPA-AM, SPA-A-A-AM!

That reminds me. I'm going to see the Spamalot musical on Sunday in Chicago.

This topic also reminds me...
I am relatively new to this board. WHY doesn't jay ever sign in? Did I miss something?

Nope, we had a couple a while ago, but the last bit spate of Spam came from Guest postings with names on them. (Generally something like asdf for the name.)

A Spate of Spam... that's kind of like a Murder of Crows, I think.
