Yes, it seems to be fine. Tank should get a crown for this. Well, at least a coronet. Well done!  8)

Yes all's well here.
I think Tank would look nice in a Tiara, I think I've got one here somewhere.

This is a test post from Tank, using the Tanksock puppet account so the account does not get deleted in the zero post sweep

Why, the audacity, the sheer gall of it! Now that Tank has become an admin, he feels free to flaunt the rules of the forum, and rub our faces in it!!! Tanksock indeed! I'm spluttering in impotent outrage!!!   All that hard work that he's volunteered to do was just a ruse to allow him to create a sock puppet, and do so with impunity. I don't think I've ever seen the like, and there's nothing any of us can do about it, except Whitney, and of course she won't, because she's no doubt very grateful to him for the work that he's done. What is the world coming to, I ask you?

. . .




. . .




On another note, at my end the forum has been functioning without glitches since your purging operation, Tank.  Great job, sir, I guess I'll just have to swallow my ire and thank you for your excellent efforts.
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."

What's the point in having power if one can't abuse it  ;D

We now have only 2,818 members and those with no posts are probably 'clean'  ;D

I think things improved further between the quoted post and now, a day later 2338 members (480 less).

Yes, that was some further cleaning out of more recent spammer accounts  ;D
