If a 'first time poster' posts the same url on more than one post, and no posts without one, get Sander to send an electric shock down the Interweb, thus deterring said 'first time poster' from their misdemeanour in future, a la Pavlov's dog experiment.

Or call them names.

Good idea on getting Sander to send electric shock, but I think lightning bolt would be even better.

Maybe spiders. That would learn em'.

I second calling them names. We could get pretty creative.

What if they like spiders??? Then they have a whole lot of pets scurrying around...

I like the Pavlov idea. Maybe a spell thrown in for good measure would help too.

Isa goes off to look for the magic wand she lost last week..

Yeah, like it worked with you

The CIA isn't that bright. Perhaps a mention of the Daams Dungeon of Doom would strike the appropriate fear.......

I say fight fire with fire. We sign the spammer up with every other spammer service we can find. That way the whole thing implodes on itself.
