That would be easy to do: approve a known spammer then immediately ban him ;)

How do you compute the aerial velocity of an unladen swallow? And is there a difference between African and European?

I don't know that...ARRRGH! [gets launched off cliff]

I mean, I know who would win that. Granted, if I had the power to ban people, I would place the spammers on a much shorter leash than is currently provided, but that's besides the point.

Also, US 281 as I-69F?

Is this some sort of inside reference to another thread here?

Nope. Tom is a misc.transport.road and Facebook personality whose catchphrase is "do us all a favor and..." directed at some unpleasant person or entity. He always punctuated his diatribes with some random route in a state that could be upgraded to an Interstate.

By the way, I'm curious how ColossalBlocks knows about TFO...
