Green Room - Week 21 - Day 3

Sorry about all of the porn spam that had been happening lately. I may be forced to restore the ban on commenting unless you have an account. I really don't want to, because I know at least one person who would be very negatively impacted by that, but at very least I know that I can't have Idol Minor happen here with that turned off! :O

After all, what's going in Russia is the big US news these days!!

So how are you doing?

Hard at work on your entry for the week? http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1023224.html


If you still need some direction, or to bounce off ideas, http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1023247.html

But you've got this! This definitely isn't a week to phone something in, and I know you are going to put out something great.

Porn spam?!? I must've missed something...

Day Two of Heatwave Central here. I think we broke a record, something like 95 or 96F today. It's still pretty warm out even at this hour. I don't even want to think what the electric bill's going to be with three A/Cs running.

It's mostly older entries. (although there was one in the Home Game thread)

I've been deleting about 10/day. Not images, just links. But still...

Huh. I want to say I'm surprised but in reality I'm not. But still.

Porn? I haven't seen any porn. Not that I was looking for it.

Watching Game of Thrones as they replay the series prepping for the new season. Watched House of Cards, but will have to watch the new season again as I watched when I was sleep-most-of-the-day-and-night. I kept falling asleep when I was watching.

I'm a couple episodes away from finishing the new season of House of Cards.

When reality is even crazier than the show, you know it's bad!

Seriously, in the past few years, when has reality not been crazier than TV? :-) We are living in "interesting times" my friend.

But the pornbots seem to have accounts, so would stopping anon commenting even stop them?

They can be banned.

Yep.

There are also the ones that *above* I'm not 100% sure about. I keep thinking "it's spam", but I've seen some comments that weren't just complete word salad and made sense in the context of what was being said. So it makes me think there might be a person on the other end who can be reached, and converted to an Idoler, in the same way I've been able to do in the past. :)

Then again, if it gets too annoying, then I'll take action.

But yes, that is a big difference - you can ban actual users.

I always like to daydream that situations like this are AIs just waking up and reaching out to us.

*thunk* OMFG. THAT is a prompt!!! What an amazingly thought-provoking outloud musing.

I blame a brief fixation with the show Person of Interest for this. They did such a great job of walking the line between science fiction and science-believable on that show, so that you really have trouble discerning whether the AI is sentient or just damn good self-preserving programming. They slowly unspool it over lots of episodes. Good stuff.
