The phrase is "one fell swoop". It's origins lie in a little known play:

Plus, dude, is your liver on overtime producing all that bile? We all get annoyed at these idiots, but you seem to be overly zealous. If you're auditioning to be the new Ben, then you need to retain the same air of righteous indignation and contempt for humanity, but calm down.

Give that liver something to do by taking up drinking! It's guaranteed 100% healthy by some bloke I met in the pub.

The problem itself is fairly straightforward: many people on the board don't know about the PEEL crash, many people don't even know about the test thread ban.

The best solution (IMO) would be to "remind" everyone about the test thread rules at the start of every new test, and perhaps every 5 pages in from then on (does that make sense)...from what I can tell, many people spamming with pointless junk just don't know (or have conveniently "forgotten" ) the test rules...
As much as test threads can suck, they do seem to help keep spammy threads under control

Hell, I should know the thing about the one fell swoop, we were reading that story in British Lit and are now apparently doing a term paper on it...

Yes, obviously I have an anger problem. I have had one my whole life, and it has dimished somewhat over the years. I try to be nice to these guys, but I don't often view them as people who will change. I often tend to think they'll never change just because they're human and I'll hate them forever. Who knows. Maybe I'm just going completely insane...

yeah... plus the java applet (I dunno if it still is on PEEL come to think of it) on PEEL sucks really bad, it basically doesn't work I think.  The CGEF one does, but you'd have to either be on CGEF or already know that it exists, so that rules out attracting people away from spamming the board...   sleep

I was still awake this time (about 5 am in Germany) and saw what was going on, but I really could not understand why people even react on such shitty threads. These threads have been flooded with post within 30 mins, and the most of them were just spam.

Take a close look at those five threads.  In particular, look at the dates the involved PEELers registered.

mArc (2000) posted a warning and closed the threads, David A (2002) posted a couple of times with the PEELers FAQ, and No Apologies (2003) posted the chat room link.

With those exceptions, EVERYONE who posted in those threads registered in 2004.  What does that tell you?

Oh, I see all are newbies.
Well I quitted responding to those threads, (beeing sometimes the first who welcomes them with the FAQ), but you see I'm also a noob.
Why am I so different compared to those?

Fishing for compliments, germanfryfan?  wink

From what I've seen, new people aren't explicitaly hated, just that in every wave there seems to be one or two who refuses to take advice, flaunts the rules and generally pisses off everyone. To avoid expanding your head too much, I'll just say you don't seem to have done any of that.  tongue

Actually, he did mean the PEEL comics thread, the closest i can find is Comics: The Tale of PEEL, but i'm sure there is another one. Anyway, we agreed that PEELodies and PEEL comics were pretty sucky a while ago. GFF, that's before your time, so don't worry   smile
On the avatar-uploading front, i really think we need a new uploader. Drippy came back just at the time when we were discussing a replacement, saying he wasn't dead. But I think another uploader would help, especially seeing that there must be a massive backlog of avatars.

EDIT: Bugger, how come when i mention he's not here, he pops up? I've just seen a post in another thread. However, my point remains valid.

I may be a n00b complaining about n00bs, but has there always been this many... how would you put it... really annoying people starting pointless threads that are even bad compared to spam on-topic?  Also, could someone post the rules for the test threads to "remind" the people who never learned?

Futuramaisok is really pushing it, 8 (or more) pointless threads all of which have been closed and he/she still hasn't got the message! And he/she ignores other peoples advice, so rude.

By the sounds of it he/she hasn't seen more the about 2 episodes of Futurama, or just wasn't paying atention. That isn't necessarily a bad thing but i don't think he/she even likes Futurama! In which case he/she has just been sent here to annoy the HELL outta us!

meh... just join the chat, then you'll know  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

And there is always at one time or another some n00bs, and at one time or another there is their master.  He goes by many names, hypnotoad, superfry, etc.  But in reality he is best known as the AntiPEELer!  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/eek.gif">

Oh and I definitely second aslate's suggestion of another avatar uploader.  Not necessarily take over drippy's place if he decides to pick it up again.  But 2 and at least one going right now would be worthwhile....  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif">

I wish to make a complaint  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I think it's innappropriate to use Peeler's quotes to castigate them in signatures, as Leelaholic does here.

Yes, I realise it's pretty hypocritical for me to say this, considering I maintain a page devoted to Superfry's sayings...however, the difference would be you don't have to visit it if you don't want to. If I ever was to get an email from Superfry asking me to remove the page, I would.

However, signatures which contain quotations from PEELers that are being used to deliberately put them in a bad light surely only contribute towards bad atmosphere...perhaps it's just me who feels that way

I'm not sure how to explain my point - if I was to create a signature insulting Leelaholic (nothing personal), I'd be pretty sure most of the PEElers would ask me to remove it. However, if it was about someone who was considered a n00b, would I still be asked to remove it? I guess I'm just saying we shouldn't slag other people off in sigs...I don't like it...

Hey, can administrators or Mods get rid of topics completely? If so then they should do away with some stupid topics that have been closed, it'll prevent another "PEEL crash" I've herd to much about.

Closed topics don't consume any resources in and by themself (well, maybe a little disk-space, but nothing major).

What have caused the previous 2 crashes was excessive posting over a short timespan. As mArc explains in this thread spam was what brought about the Great Off-Topic Crash of 2002 (we don't talk about PEEL Crash #1). So if people (not directed at anyone) want to avoid another crash, they just have to cut meaningless spam and mindless chit-chat (something that's been on the rise lately).
