Default Let's repopulate the thread area with things not written by bots

Just an idea. Feel free to write about whatever you'd like

Good idea. I did my bit yesterday with 2 posts. Then they sent another wave of gibberish. Truthfully though, I'm tiring of the lack of responses and often feel like I'm talking to myself. I can do that w/o typing it.

Same here. I write plenty of posts here that get zero response. How's your month going? I've made the switch to 5x5 after 5 and a half years of 4x4.

I wish there were a "like" button, so that interesting posts could easily get positive feedback.

I commented on your post about crossing 900 pts but it was under my other ID, thinkbig. I like playing 5x5 much more.
I'm happy with the way my play is going. So far this month I've set 579 new best/longest word records. Barring any last minute surprises I should get 2 more first place trophies in avg pts/word. I feel like I'm making steady improvement and learning new words. There are still some times that I don't see much on the boards but those times are getting briefer now.
How's it going for you?

If you're pressed for time, you could leave a one word reply like "interesting."

The most interesting thing about these spambots is that they advertise some sort of writing agency that claims to help people write papers and things like that, yet their posts are written in gibberish that barely qualifies as English.

I wonder if they are the same people who write the fortune cookie fortunes?
At any rate, it's a bit ironic that they offer their questionable services in the forums of a word game where most players have a pretty good vocabulary and share a certain measure of love for the English language, which the bots manage to butcher completely.
