NeeNee hasn't been online for a month. I imagine her reaction upon seeing the burst of forum activity and the multiple pages in the spoiler moping thread will be like this:



Actually really, really pleased with how well the forum's been doing. It's still active, everyone's mostly on topic and I haven't noticed any fights (yet).

Even the spambots seem to have behaved. I should go away more often. :P

WELCOME BACK NEENEE! It's good to have you back! The forum went down at one point and we all burst into flames but it came back, thankfully.

Have you been keeping up with the manga though? I can't wait to hear your opinion on what's been going on!

Your alive!! Welcome back~ ヽ(・∀・)

Calm down. It was just one bot.

I deleted him already.

It was funny because the captcha over run program it was advertising was called "XEvil," that was hilarious! Also clearly it works LOL.

^ I don't know. If only one of them got it, I'm not really impressed.

Of course we do have safety questions as well...

NeeNee! Glad to see you're alright.

(Haven't read the new chapter though, so no comment.)

So, um. I kinda insulated the PI of the project I'm on?

He did walk into a conversation between me and the grads about being relieved that we made it through conference week, and he said "oh, I thought you were saying that about my walk from the bathrooms".

I said, "we were worried about you, you know you're getting older and you're not getting enough fiber in your diet".

About thirty seconds of silence. "Thanks for the reminder I'm getting old, earth. When are your quals again?"

>.<

I have no self-preservation instinct.

^ That's just a cute, sassy comment. Of course it depends on how he took it, but I wouldn't think too much about it. It definitely wasn't an insult. Maybe he just couldn't find a good comeback?

It really looks like the first one we had was like a scout, and now he called his friends. It's a bit annoying.

And they still only made one account, with a volume of posts that a human could totally make manually. Bot so ineffective you might as well just do it all yourself. Terrible advertising, really.
