I was trying to post a reply to the post below regarding the way spammers are continuing to polute the forums and guess what? I was informed my post had triggered the spam filter and would not be accepted. This is bullshit. Come on guys. Serious posters get blocked but these wankers can post their garbage? Seriously?

Here was my post that the filter blocked...

 

Maybe there should be something that uses the actual mac address of the poster. That would probably go a long way to slowing these douchenozzles. If the network card or router they use gets banned as opposed to just the account they can't just set up a new one each time, but would have to either use a different machine or change out the card or router each and every time they got banned.

The ban list could also be shared as a public blacklist of spammers.

Just an idea I had sloshng around in my head. Not sure if it's feasible but I'd like to find out.

I joined the honeypot project because my forums were getting continually spammed, even with Recaptcha. I installed the honeypot script and included a mod in my forum that checks all visitors against a public blacklist and will deny spammers access to the forums. The spam dropped by 99% overnight. Now I just get the oddball spam message here and there.

Well, so much for Sysmark having any genuine relevance anymore. Another piece of software for the dumpster. It'll be interesting to see how long the sysmark package lasts now that it's all but worthless for any kind of objective benchmarking.

Fudging numbers?

Intel has designed their compiler to intentionally slow AMD processors and cause system crashes. God only knows what their freaking OS does.

Intel makes Oses too?

They make a Linux version called Meego

Ah.... but was he referring to that when he was talking about fudging the numbers.  I really doubt Intel is fudging the numbers since they are already ahead. Now when the P4 was getting it's ass kicked, I think those years they have fudged the numbers. But when your the only one that your competing against, what is the point in fudging the numbers. Sure it looks good but AMD is still far behind.

Unless you are there, there is no way to know exactly what is going on. Unfortunately, Intel does have a record of fudging the numbers. I am not saying that their new cores don't perform well, just that Intel has been caught fudging before, mind you, so has AMD. As for the 80% and 100% vote on proposals, one can vote for a proposal, but that doesn't mean it actually makes it into the final product as it is just that, a proposal. I would really like to know why nVidia and VIA left though, as it may shed more light on the subject.
