Getting Caught Cheating this Forum
« on: August 03, 2013, 07:13:17 PM »
I got caught cheating this forum last night. I posted a bunch of drunk posts about Mildred Monday in order to advance past "Newb"  and I got my ass kicked because of it. Not only were all my moronic posts deleted but I was also demoted to "Newb," and the incident was recorded in my permanent record by the principal. This is a sad day. Not only have I disgraced myself, but i've brought shame to the PLA forums.   :o

Honestly, though, the stuff I wrote last night seemed hilarious to me when I was writing it. Boxwine is powerful stuff. i'm sure it probably wasn't funny at all.

It's nothing personal, it's just that for us who come to the forums via the "new posts" link, the legitimate posts were completely flooded out by you.  You made some good posts, but mostly you were just posting garbage over and over.  The only easy way to deal with it is to remove them all at once. 

Welcome to the forums!  They're mostly dead.  But not so dead that we welcome spam.

Hey RBCP,
Thanks for the personal reply, man. I understand completely and I didn't take it personally at all. This is my new account, without the Keith Alexander reference. 

I've been a PLA fan for years, practically since the first PLA podcasts were released on iTunes. I'm also a liberal/libertarian lawyer with expertise in U.S. Intelligence Law, so if you ever have any legal questions, toss them my way and I'll do my best to answer them for free.

One bit of advice, RBCP,
You said the PLA Forums are mostly dead now.
Have you ever considered redesigning the PLA Forums as a Drupal site? You could use the "OneAllSocialLogin" module to allow users to login using their Facebook, Google, OpenID, LinkedIn, Yahoo, or other major social media account. This might revitalize the PLA Forums, since users could contribute without having to start up a special account with phonelosers.com. I don't know much about Simple Machine Forums, but I know a lot about Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress. Allowing users to login with Facebook alone could increase participation significantly, since everybody's moved over to Facebook.

Just a thought, man. You said the PLA Forums were dead, but there's no reason for that. Integrating Facebook login could bring in hundreds of extra participants who might not otherwise participate if they were required to start up a separate account with a unique password and username. I don't know if this is possible with Simple Machine Forums, but I know it's possible with Drupal.

Drupal looks more like content management than forum software.  I know nothing about Drupal though.  I did try to set up Facebook logins for our SMF forums awhile back, but it failed and I don't remember why.  Maybe I'll mess around with that some more today.  Thanks for the motivation.  Hey look, you mysteriously have an extra 20 posts and aren't a newb now!

Holy fucking shit, people, shit's getting real.  I just logged into the forums with PLA's Twitter.

Oh shit.  Oh shit.  Ohhhhh shit!

It kind of sucks, I have to go through a bunch of elaborate steps to make each social service work.  I think I'm gonna try doing Google next.

Wow, Google let me log in without even setting anything up.  Good ole Google.

I feel like I'm being a Saul Goodman and spamming the forums now.  Sorry, everyone.

Hey RBCP,
Way to go on the Social Login, man! I just saw you implemented it.
Thanks also for the 20 extra posts and the battlefield promotion from "Newb."

If you want, you might consider adding a new "Legal" or "Law" category to the forums. I've got something I want to post about the different consent laws in different states related to recording phone calls. It could be useful to members who do prank calls on their own or who make the mistake of pranking within their own jurisdiction.

Says the lawyer from "Breaking Bad". Sorry, we don't cook meth here. We are just a bunch of users.  :nonsense:

You might not be cooking meth, but these PLA episodes you produce are like crack.
I'm addicted.
Seriously man, I'm at work listening to the Snow Plow Show on my iPod, and I keep cracking up.
My colleagues don't know what I'm listening to and they probably think I'm going crazy.
Our work is pretty boring so I'm sure they wonder why I keep laughing out loud while reading these legal docs.

You are legally obligated to get all of your coworkers hooked on PLA.

Definitely! There are 15 other attorneys on my team right now, and we've had numerous conversations about the PLA because I've been cracking up laughing so much. The girl across from me, Leah, introduced her boyfriend to the PLA last weekend, and he works somewhere else across town. I see the PLA's popularity spreading across Washington D.C. in no time.

Hey Brad,
    I just sent a message to you and Carlito on Facebook. It's really long, but you should check it out when you get a chance. It's an idea about how you can raise money to fund your show and the shows on Madhouse.
   Sorry, in advance, that the message is so long, but I think the idea is pretty good and I kept fleshing it out more and more as I was writing. You can take the lawyer out of the law firm, but you can't take the law firm out of the lawyer.

This is my 50th post!
I think this is enough to graduate to "Senior Phone Loser."
I can now stop "spamming" the Forums with unsolicited legal information and nonsense.
