    . . . please do not take it as an insult. Because of the Chinese language spam problem, we have implemented some measures which will hopefully make things better for everyone. I’m not going to reveal the nature of the measures we took, but it means that occasionally a legitimate post will be held for moderation.

    If this happens to you, please do not post about it publicly. If you have a question, feel free to PM me about it, and I’ll answer as soon as I can, but bringing attention to it may tip our hand to the spammers.

    OK, so, I'll refrain from posting in Chinese. Got it.

    ‘Bout time! :)

    Hey, to all you guys; thanks. Moderating this forum isn’t always a fun job, but it’s usually a very rewarding one, and that’s a reflection of the community here, which is to say, you guys.

    Anything you do to try and fix the Chinese problem is a good thing. Thanks.

    It hasn’t proven entirely effective yet.

    Synchro, I just need to check as to whether my non-posts might be moderated, too. :p:D

    OK !

    @Synchro : the Squier-Talk forum uses the same plateform as the Gretsch-Talk forum, and I never saw any Chinese spam attack there... They probably found a solution ?

    A+!

    Everything from you is relayed by the drone we have following you and sent to our labs for detailed analysis before posting, especially your non-posts. :)

    You don’t know the half of it. I recently realized that all the paranoiacs are holding secret meetings about me. :)

    No, we're not.

    The voices may not be real, but they have some interesting ideas.

    That just what I’d expect a paranoiac to say. :)

    Poor Brian Wilson heard voices for years, and these voices threatened to harm him. What helped him the most was when his second wife asked him a simple question; “have they ever actually hurt you?” Brian Wilson lives a much better life now and, apparently, a little love and understanding can go a long way.

    Those voices wrote a lot of truly great songs, though.

    At least some of it may have stemmed from an abusive father whom pushed Brian to write for the sake of the family. I don’t have any way of knowing, but I suspect that many of Brian’s “voices” were the mental echoes of things his father had said to him.

    And how wonderful that creativity triumphed over mental torture. He could have turned into a serial killer.
