OK thanks I think you have whacked the current ones. I'll PM you any new ones.

We've had two of these "meaning of life" messages in the last few weeks. I got one tonight and I told him to go away. He then posted a filthy reply to me, which, of course, I deleted, and I locked him out. Then another one popped up.

I've asked my editors to watch for them, and I'll keep locking them out. I don't think they're Hare Krishnas, just nasty trolls.

Pardon me for butting in;  I've had those too too, I don't say a word, I just lock out with no warning and delete the message.  :)

It is helpful if you drop a note with membernames to or send me or Gunter a message. We can nuke the messages for everybody if we know the names. The spammers are adroit at changing IP and email addresses so we may not recognize them until after they post a lot.

That's what I'll be doing from now on. I've got some good editors.
