    About a year ago there was a thread titled "1111101000 AKA Sexy Spam!". The thread tallied 6,564 Posts and roughly 65,419 views. I don't quite remember the day it was started but it ended around todays date. And it has been a year since it started but it was the longest thread on ZP.

    The thread had pictures, poetry, art, humor, and spam.

    Some of the members would remember it. Some of the mods at that time did or did not like the thread that much.
    I used to be a former spammer and now I sometimes look out for other spammers in the forums.

    Caution: Spammers who Spam will be banned or will get a some sort of warning.

    The link to the thread has been sort of termininated.

    Yeah, I remember that thread. I got in about 20 pages down or so (maybe 40). It was addictive for about a week. I had to check and read the other posts every few hours to keep up. Then it was gone. Everything has an end. Life especially.

    That was nuts, every few hours or so there'd be 5 new pages of spam. I think maybe 20 something of my posts are in there.

    Ahhh the spam... many a frog and picture were there...
    By the way, where is the frog? I tried to post it yesterday and it was no longer there...

    I loved the Sexy Spam thread; it brought the members together and made us able to "know" each other in a way that most general BBS postings do not.

    ZP without the frog is sad...

    That's damn near all anyone did for the time that it was open. I'm sure it wasn't too fun for the servers either. At least, I remember that being brought up as a possible issue.

    It wouldn't be the same if it were restarted because a bunch of the members that contributed to it and helped make it what it was are no longer here.

    It would not be a good idea to start it up.
    If it was restarted then, it probably would go out of control and become a closed thread. Also, It would stress the servers that operate the site and the amount user plus the bandwith it would take.
    But it was sort of fun while it lasted.

    the thread was closed because of the "unruly resource usage."

    why was the thread moved to the crib? beats me.

    Bullshit, this was never established, only speculated.

    I even asked Jorge to provide any evidences that this McBobo server couldnt take a few extra posts an hour, or handle the storage of the pics etc, and got squat. You should distinctly remember my saying that this server must be, in reality a TRS80 someone dug out of the garbage if it couldnt handle a little extra work. I saved a great portion of that thread to my own hard drive, and had calculated the total size of the container, even if mirrored or striped etc.

    What it boils down to is paying for the hosting by bandwidth and storage, it always boils down to $$ here. It was after the Sexy Spam thread that there were some hardware upgrades etc, my thinking is, so fucking what? Sell a few extra beenies. That thread got ZeroPaid noticed, A LOT. The only other single thing that drew the dreg of the internet to ZeroPaid was Jorge making a public Service announcement. The thread was moved to the crib so it was non accessible to dataminers.

    It was fun while it lasted, got closed for being "fun" and to reproduce it, would be like having Woodstock 2004, or celebrating Mardi Gras in Seattle, it would be a fake rip-off wanna-be.

    The spam thread was cool. Glad one is back in another form. It gives a place for everyone to just jabber about fun things and stuff they enjoy. I avoided the sexy spam thread for a long time before I even veiwed it and then it took me an hour to catch up! It was fun times. We need a thread like this to cut down on the silly thread count. Post silly topic here!

    i know that, that's why i put "unruly resource usage" in quotations.

    i didn't agree with it a bit.

    Ok i will do my best to answer this, as I can view the server load. Im not great at putting it in technical terms, but at times I have observed the server load getting excessive when certain threads were getting viewed a lot. This I have personally witnessed.
