@lexi Did we ever discuss the beautiful German word Mumpitz? How come you know it? In the German version of Sesame Street, the Amazing Mumford is called „der Große Mumpitz“, which is a pretty good name for a bad magician. Anyway, I finally have managed to contact somebody responsible for the forum, and some of the most annoying threads have since disappeared. (Magically). I hope that we also can ged rid of Mr. Flintoff and his colleagues this way.

@herringbone. I just did a Google translate for "balderdash". Mumpitz... such a great word. I will use it from now on.

For example ; what a load of "mumpitz". 😊

@lexi You should! But you must pronounce it the German way. With a ​/⁠ʊ⁠/​.  Like a Scottsman would pronounce the u in „but“.

@Herringbone Fantastic, thank you for that, I have also been trying to get through to them but no luck. So that's wonderful.

@herringbone. I work with a girl from Scotland so I will practice the "u" with her. 😀

@kyle-barrett I’ve reported tons of bot posts. But it turns out that, for some reason, they didn’t get any of the reports. 😖 But now that I found a way of communication, it should be possible to minimize the number of bots around.
