Intruder Alert - w/ virus too !
« on: April 10, 2017, 10:00:15 PM »
1. Just noted today - Apirl 10th, 2017 - someone posing as "sleeper" has taken over the thread started by gOOber, not "sleeper".

2. "sleeper" went in and changed dates and times to look like he started this thread?

3. Thread is "Thanks For the Mammeries, etc" in General Discussion section.

4. This "sleeper" may be in other threads/groups as well.

5. if you click on his post ("sleeper"), your PC will go wammy, telling you a virus is installed and you need to call Microsoft, etc.  All the usual playing games stuff.
Get most of your news from television and all you'll know is what the anchorette info babes spin your way! (Maddow, Costello, Sawyer, Brzezinski, Mitchell, etc.  )

 Get most of your news from television comics (Behar, O'Donnell, Stewart, Colbert, Sharpton, Letterman, Maher, Bashir, etc.) and all you'll know is sarcasm and mordacity.

OK, to clarify, the problem is in the thread that's titled "Thanks for the mammaries", not the "Thanx for the mammaries! - Best Gag Photos of All Time" thread. (The similar names have been confusing the moderators for about a decade.)

I think what happened is that Salem (the Watchman who's in charge of merging redundant threads) found another forgotten old thread named "Thanks for the mammaries" and merged it with the same-named thread that gOOber started. Messages in merged threads are arranged in chronological order, so if the thread created by Sleeper was started before the thread created by gOOber, Sleeper would become the originating poster of the merged thread. (Incidentally, Sleeper hasn't posted since 2015.)

I can't get any of the links in Sleeper's post to work at all, so I'm not sure what to do about the warning message you received.
