I love the Knights of Camelot though I'm not as keen on their favorite meal (at least according to Monty Python)... well, actually, I've done my time on potted meat and it left me no worse for wear. I think it was called college. So, who am I to speak poorly of that delightful portmanteau of spiced ham? But, those annoying purveyors of unsolicited real estate advice, movie deals that are a steal -- quite literally, and pharmaceuticals ranging from the legal to the somewhat legal to the downright illegal, never mind the bizarre attempt to date our community, these annoyances are still very real within our community.
Recently we've seen people abuse the ability to create documents on the site and a user who reached out to a number of our members through the direct messaging system. Please do us all a favor. If you see something abusive, off topic, rude, over-the-top, or too good to be true... or even one of those interesting novelesque story excerpts with the links imbedded to download movies, please flag it.

We have a very active and vibrant community. Please understand that attracting this activity is part of the cost of having a good place to share knowledge. As my mom used to say, "the more popular you are, the more the jerks want to tear you down, ride your coattails, or get in your business." Of course, I think she might have been talking to my older brother about me, but it fits here, too.
On another note, has anyone seen Spamalot? Is it good? Can I take my 10 year old... remember, I took him to Young Frankenstein; he liked it; and, I didn't have to hear him repeat the language... yet.
