    Please, everybody keep this OUT of Stratics.
    This is NOT UO-related and as far as we are concenrned it's advertising and spam.
    Those who post it will face the consequences (infraction points).
    Thank you for your attention.

    ...

    A quick Google and I believe I know what it is and what it is comparable to, in which case, I don't blame Magdalene one bit.

    Just another message board infestation really.

    Just Google "fight my brute" and you'll get the general idea. I think I've only noticed one post here about it sometime in the last week, so I think the mods have been doing a good job of keeping it away from the UO forums.

    Opening a thread about dragon eggs and pimping them is not welcome either. Eggs sitting in a sig are tolerable.

    i dont see why eggs are allowed in sigs either because to use your words......"its advertising and spam" also it is " NOT UO-related" i think if you disallow one then it should be the same for all. just my 2 cents

    Thanks for pointing me toward that "unmentionable" web site. Kinda generic, but entertaining. I see all sorts of diiferent non-UO related mini-games links in peoples sigs. Maybe SOMEone just had a bad experience with this one? The dragon/dragon egg ones are pretty annoying to me. Cutesy to the point of nausea IMHO, but they don't hurt anything, how is this different?

    I have the Eggs blocked in Firefox just as I would any other "please click my {insert whatever here}" types of things, especially if and when they started to slow down page loading.

    There isn't one yet? Given the mental maturity level of the net in general I would have expected that to be the FIRST thing people came up with.

    No, the internet was invented so scientists could look at pictures/research results from labs across the country instantly. Porn came second. :D

    It's this lame, flash based game; essentially the pyramid scheme of gaming, as you advance by bringing more people into it.

    And, unless I'm misunderstanding this thread; having a link in your signature not against the rules, but making a post dedicated to it is.

    Lol @ Morgan's "Brute". :)

    I would link to the WoW music video of "the Internet is for Porn", but the lyrics contain words in violation of Stratics code of conduct - so just go to Youtube and look it up yourself.....

    OK so how much trouble do I get in if I post what the internet is really for in an embedded format?

    Rats, Basara beat me to it. Someone did a WoW based video to be dubbed with music and lyrics from a puppet show. But that was years ago, I know I'm not alone in having found it.

    That's funny. Players have been banned from Stratics for posting this similar to your message. Suggesting players go look up things that are against the RoC should at least get you an infraction. Then again, you are a mod, so nothing will happen...la

    a. there's the law, the spirit of the law, the letter of the law and there are creative interpretations.
    b. mods are not invulnerable, for bad behaviour they get de-modded first and eventually banned later...

    This made me think of a text msg joke I got the other day from a buddy:

    "A boy drew a penis on a chalk board. The teacher of course erased it. The next day the boy drew a bigger penis and wrote, 'The more you rub it, the bigger it gets!'"

    You're mostly right... but the progression was MILNET > ARPANET > Internet

    ARPANET evolved from portions of MILNET shared with colledges working on R&D for uncle sam and themselves.

    MILNET had one realy fun purpose and was the reason DOD Protocol (the precursor to TCP/IP) was developed...To make sure a launch order got through no matter what the circumstance or media.

    That's right... The internet was born to nuke commies to oblivion! Huu Haa!

    Then why do some mods act like they are and purposely try to pull some people up on absolutely anything just because they don't like them, while others escape with similar offenses completely unscathed?
