I am tired of this happening:

1. Someone posts spam.

2. Someone else replies with important information regarding, say, certain life choices one might make should one find oneself in possession of a baby which is, for want of a better term, someone else's.

3. The whole thread is deleted, thereby raising troubling questions regarding BGG's stance re: stealing babies.

Why can't these threads be A) left alone, or B) moved to some new "200 Yahoo Boots" forum? Believe me, no one understands better than I the desire to keep Chit Chat uncorrupted by random Internet garbage, but I feel that the present policy deliberately deprives people of valuable life lessons, and, frankly, exposes BGG to liability: if I take a SWAT sniper bullet in the neck instead of the head because BGG admins actively prevented me from reading the post which would have steered me in the right direction, isn't BGG at least partly responsible for my ongoing medical expenses?

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure BGG is "pro-baby", whatever that means.

But spam, spam isn't an interruption of the action like a canker on the revealed penis—it's an opportunity for meaningful human interaction, and in the current political climate god knows we need more of that:

For some reason I have a baby that isn't mine—how I came to be in possession of this baby isn't important, and would only serve as a distracting diversion from the real problem, which that I seem to remember something about the police being less than pleased when things like this happen, and that permanently hiding the baby can bite you in the ass later, like once you're shaken whatever demon it is that causes a man to do such things as acquire babies which are strangers to him and he's happily married with several grown children who are actually his own, having come out of his wife in the usual way after the usual things (the ol' poke 'n choke, DVDA, etc., etc.) and he's a senator or something and then BAM a backhoe cracks the vault in the back 40 and DNA being DNA he's suddenly in the news, and not in the way keeps him deep in the wet, but maybe the other way around with his cellie, and while I'm something of a libertine I do prefer that my carousees honor my safe word; and in a damned-if-I-do-damned-if-I-don't conundrum, taking the baby straight to the police station or church with a gun gets the SWAT sniper out of bed and while he's very interested in doing a good job it's early and he hasn't has his coffee yet which means when he takes the shot he either wings you or gets the baby or both, which is messy and painful like a one-eyed headsman whose nickname is "Sevens" because that's the average number of whacks he takes to finish the job, and no one wants to see that.

So, long story short, can you help me with any of this?

I really need more information about how event 1 led to event 2. Do people post important baby-saving information on random threads, search out specifically spam threads to put this, or maybe the spammers put the crucial information there in a vain attempt to save their threads from destruction?

If one suddenly finds themself in possession of a baby that is not theirs, the following steps should be followed in order:

1) Do not drop the baby (This should continue throughout the following three steps).

2) Call out to nearby humans (assuming the baby is demonstrably human) asking them if the baby belongs to them.

3) On no account should the baby be passed to a ravenous bear.

4) Check nearby doorsteps for a basket that the baby might have escaped from.

Nononononono.

If one finds oneself in possession of a baby that is not one's, one ought first to look both ways to see if anyone else might witness one, and then, once one has determined one's safety, then one can tuck in.

If most people had suggested that hypothetical scenario, I would have brushed it off as an improbable event. When you do, I start wondering exactly what you have planned.

Thank you.
So what you're telling me is if I want my spam to stick, I need someone else to post something more relevant in response?

Pete (has a friend or two)
