You spell it "humour"... Like how it's pronounced!*

*Neither of them really make any sense. I should know, I'm an expert.

An expert on not making sense? Those are difficult to find nowadays.

I am currently in the process of purging the Memberlist of anything that has never posted. This is proving to be more time consuming than I previously surmised.

edit:
04.43 and it's done. Culled something approaching three thousand members, managed to save a handful. Still need to check the Spam-Bot paddock to see how heavy the casualties were.

edit:
04.45 Licensed spam-bot casualties are staggering. I have lost over two-thirds of my stock. At the current rate of spam registrations, it will be at least a year before the losses are recouped. Truly a sad day for Spam-Bot research on the Forum.

edit:
04.48 it seems that I was in fact unable to save even the handful I thought I had earlier. It is a grave day for lurkers.

edit:
05.08 oh hey I just realised I can change the Rules to accurately reflect the number of members on the Forum!

edit:
05.34 and now I realised that some of the members who have posted only once are Spam-Bots! Sure, they're ancient, but that might not entirely be a bad thing for experiments.

Cull and culled is a word that I don't think I'd ever come across a few years ago, but now I hear it all the time.
Chuck Palahniuk's Diary is about a culling song, and our produce department does a daily cull of all the rotten/damaged/garbage produce.
Just weird how sometimes a word never crosses your path for years and years, and then you are inundated with it.

Words can go in and out of fashion like that, for example, until recently I did not know what platonic meant despite never knowing a word that adequately substituted it, but now people seem to refer to it more often. Maybe because they also discovered it and realised how much more convenient it is to use it rather than try to quantify their level of affection.

Oh so when I wanted to delete all the 0 posters a while ago, it was too radical, but now it's perfectly fine?

Ed. I am disappoint.

I was actually trying to save all of the ones that weren't spam-bots, in case you glossed over my post. When it asks you whether you want to delete or deactivate the accounts, it gives you a list of about 150 or so names. When I read through the list I saw bunches of Spam, and hit the delete button. When it stayed with the loading cursor icon I figured the request had stalled for some reason or another, so I went back through and deactivated 0 post users, selectively reactivating the ones that were Meat.

Unfortunately, the delete request hadn't stalled, it was just taking a crazy long time to delete all of the 0 post accounts instead of just the ones listed. So the fifty or so accounts I was able to salvage were caught by the wave of deletions. I tried to save them mage. I tried but it didn't work, and now I have their deaths upon my head.

That's the difference, I actually tried saving people. You just wanted every lurker dead.

So we decide that intent is the way we measure our actions?

Still viable though, apparently.

Well it shouldn't. We should have strict measures on the way people pronounce things.

As long as you said it properly, you shall live.

This is a fair system. We'll give everyone a few days to learn how to say things correctly and then we'll get going with the executions.

Segue became very popular a few years back, and now no one uses it again. Just something that happens, I haven't really read anything on the topic so I don't know what kind of research has been done. It gets a little weird when everyone starts using the same word like that, especially when they don't know what it means. It always sounds weird when they use it.
