I hope he does not comeback.

No, he signed up as a novice.

Yes, novice comes first. That was his first post under that particular username.

Maybe you could block his email address, if he posts it, and change everything else to math math math Rover, math, math, math.

I saw a great poster in veterinarians office of a master talking to his dog and the dog heard blah, blah, blah, blah, and then his name, and then blah, blah, blah... It was funny, and also they have a great periodic table of the vegetables at the vets too.

Most of them are very difficult to stop. This particular guy/gal has been barred from 30 forums and blogs for porn spam. Where he comes from they encourage spamming and hacking particularly against Western Europe and the United States.

Oh well, at least you are doing a fine job at manually addressing each instance as needed. Good Work.

Hi;

Thanks, there are some automated methods but they are not very smart and are easily defeated.

Case in point this guy who claims he comes from Latvia, India and Russia all at the same time has been operating for 3 years!

Here he is on another forum back when he was selling blackmarket drugs.

Hmmm. I couldn't see the post on the other forum and I'm not about to join the forum.

It is coming in rather slowly but I have images of them.

Sometime in the next millenium do you think someone might delete the incorrect formula, the last trig formula in post # 2, as I have noted in post # 19 and #20? (See formulas - Trigonometry formulas down near the bottom) No rush on this, but maybe someday.

I will take care of it. Do you want your last post there erased?

Yes, I would erase anything that is not quality formulas.

Done as you asked. Cleaned up ganesh's last line and left your new formula in as an addition to the others. Deleted all other commentary other than one answer to a direct question.

I think I will start messing with a lot of those formulas in my free time to see what I see. There's a bunch of interesting stuff in there. I've always been partial to trig, but only got half a year of it in high school, and the other half year was analysis or pre-calc.

That is what they are there for. For people to use them. Trig is a nice field.

Definitely. Very visual. I should beef up on it. But for now, aloha, it's getting late in New England.

I changed a lot of sounds that Windows makes like starting up and shutting down and popup message balloon sound and stuff to other wave files. That was fun! It's in Windows\Media.
