Posted by Exis [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 03:48:08 AM Hey all..
Our team are looking for Visual Basic programmers to help us out at Gameage. If you visit http://www.gameage.co.uk/about.asp it tells you what we are!
We're a company that is currently creating a Multiplayer Gaming / Chat service. We have over 15 Gaming servers working and 87% of the client finished. We need a lot of help now completing it for public release.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help and we will give you some information :)

Posted by regretfuldaydreamer [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 09:33:40 AM I say a couple of things things:
1) Send them a bill for the bandwidth this advertisement used.
2)Do a DOS on them(Thats where you send hundreds of requests to their web server, to crash it, isn't it). And clearly state that we will do this to companys that use this website as a free advertisement billboard.
3) Sign that email address up to hundreds of spam lists
4) Create a page that companys can advertise on, charge them ludricous amounts of money and then relax and be happy in the knowledge: WE'RE TEENS, IN SCHOOL FOR FUCK SAKE, HOW THE FUCK CAN WE WORK FOR YOU.(Sorry about my little outburst there
OK, maybe not, but still delete this thread and email them about our unhappiness about this place being used to advertise.
Posted by regretfuldaydreamer [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 09:35:54 AM Hey, I just realised this is their second advert here.
Posted by mop [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 09:44:46 AM Second? there have been more.
Pah, just do what daydreamer says, we're here to learn and discuss. These people waste our time? We waste theirs.
spam! spam! spam!
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 03:37:51 PM I don't think there is any need to respond so negatively, as long as he intends to return. I don't know if that is true, however.
Posted by diegoeskryptic [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 05:56:47 PM come on P... how many times have we seen this situation occur.... hmmmm.. SUGGESTION: i think that there should be something included in the FAQ which says this site is to not be used soley as some advertisement place!... all violators will be dealt with accordingly (i know that sounds harsh... but it should be sumthing of that nature)... maybe sumone can elaborate on this idea....
Posted by mop [send private reply] at August 27, 2002, 07:00:16 PM Its a known fact that all spammers read and post accordingly to the faqs of all the target forums.
Posted by DragonWolf [send private reply] at August 28, 2002, 07:02:09 AM I don't mind a bit of spam if it means getting more people..
and besides I like reading these ads, their either so stupid their funny, or like this one, quite nifty..
