Profile feed





Is that how relationships get started nowadays? "I want to have a relationship, here's my email. kthnxbai!" laugh.png


Unfortunately for her, I don't date any spambots with such atrocious grammar. It's also amusing that it spelled 'relationship', 'appreciate', and 'communication' properly, but not 'easies ting'.


I wonder how many others got similar messages. Thankfully, it's very easy for us to delete them ourselves, but it'd be even easies ting if the forum software somehow blocked it. tongue.png

It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

It looks like there are at least 10 others, including staff like Michael Tanczos.

The spammer was already banned for other spams on the site. It looks like some of the moderator spammer-killing tools needs to be adjusted to handle profile feed messages as well.

Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.

Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I write about assorted stuff.

I got one as well. Deleted it immediately, wanted to report but I couldn't find the option, and was too tired to create a thread. Do people actually reply to this stuff? I have to guess yes, otherwise they wouldn't keep doing it.. how desperate do you have to be blink.png (also, the girl in the picture looks underage *and* pregnant, though it's too small to be sure)

The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.
