So

Much

Spam!

Ugh...
To reduce spam, you need to use those spam mitigation controls in the ACP. (Your username is blue, so I assume you're admin.)

If they come through, well, two things: IP Ban/Discourage along with discourage/ban on their accounts. This way, even if they slide through the spam mitigation cracks, you can take away their access. The more you do it, the easier it becomes.

Just an F.Y.I.

All of the above already done - it's just one of those things that comes in waves and then goes away again.

Nowhere near as bad as it used to be before xenforo...my gosh, we had floods and floods of the stuff on a daily basis. This is one or two posts a day, so manageable. But irritating all the same.

CT: this time next week I'll be on my way home from seeing Jack Whitehall in Liverpool...feels like I've been waiting for this show forever

8 queries sent with 1 rejection so far. I could probably send another 2 or 3 today, but I should probably return focus to outlining STATIC. Then again, I don't want to force it either, so... :unsure:

I know saying "I like the US version of an Japanese product" is pretty much no different than slaying a baby duck but! I do like the US versions of many Godzilla films and I don't care if people agree with me or not.

At work, one of the rooms is called the Pear Tree room, named after an estate in our town. So, in the spirit of Christmas, I created this little beauty to sit on the noticeboard in there. It's tragic that so few people understand the joke and even more tragic that many of them are older than I am and therefore have no excuse for such ignorance:

For almost a week, I've felt like a violin string that is tightened to the extreme and could snap anytime, but today all the tension is finally gone. My shoulders have dropped like three inches (I tend to hold them up when I'm stressed, it causes terrible headaches). I'm smiling and speaking with a normal volume (regardless of the conversation topic, stress makes me speak with a very loud voice, which I'm not aware of unless someone else asks me not to shout).

Today I went to a café and bought myself a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream, just because I felt like it. I slouched on the sofa, read a book and smiled. The greatest thing to worry about was that there was also an offer about a "winter latte", which I would have preferred over hot chocolate if I had seen the offer before the barista started to make my drink :laugh:

Oh yeah, and I'm gonna send some chocolate for someone I treated very disrespectfully a couple of months ago. She's been very understanding and told me not to worry about such minor things. I'm still worrying and I want her to know that I really appreciate her mature attitude and I still want to apologize for being such a jerk. During these last few days, she's helped me a lot, although she's not obliged to do that and she would definitely have a reason to stay out of my personal problems. She deserves that chocolate. :thumbsup:

I'm finally able to state this with full honesty: I'm happy.

Edit:
Today goes straight to my Best Days of 2019 top-5 :D some things happened, someone confessed the wrong they've done in a way, I feel victorious. Wow. Just... wow. Justice has been done, at least in some sense.

Contractors working on our roof for the next few days. So much noise, the dog's losing his mind, and I'm not entirely convinced they aren't trying to break the house entire.

This should be fun. :meh:

Constantine references William Blake in today's issue and I'm flashing back to V in DMCV.

Insert "i get the reference" moment. I wouldn't mind if they did more with Blake's work in a sequel.

Hellboy gets a lot of mileage from the Conquerors Worm by Edgar Allen Poe.

Oh, thank gods. They were going to do ours and the neighbour's at the same time, but due to being short a few guys, they focused solely on ours--so it got done in one day when it otherwise would've taken until Friday.

+Kiddo's Christmas performance today, and apparently her class is second-last on the roster. This...is going to be a long show. ._. Think I'll give her the last day off; I think we could all use a lie-in before going down to the in-laws for the next week.

++Welp, STATIC is back on the backburner for now. One of these days I'll finish the first draft, but right now isn't its time.

I'm liking the Trafalgar Law DLC trailer for the One Piece: World Seeker game.

One comment was "give him a spinoff" and I thought a prequel showcasing how he got his bounty would be fun.

So let me get this straight: Fortnite has a tie-in event with the new Star Wars, and the event had an audio excerpt from the movie, and now people are thinking this somehow makes the game canon to the movies? Why are people that stupid?
