    Retirement can do that. But I still have some high-tech curiosity. :)

    Guy with a cat in his avatar testing data analytics with "dog".

    I am appalled.

    Lest I seem overly snide :# -- as an experimental scientist, I am intrigued both by the 'problem statement' or hypothesis (i.e., "Mention of 'dog' in a thread title draws canine-content-focused spam/spammers") and the experimental means to test the hypothesis. Indeed, I applaud @BlueFox for his efforts!

    Here's a thought. To keep some anchor to the core topic of these forums, why not combine the canine and the audio aspects of the test and throw some shade on the dog?

    We could test specificity with a post in the Clubhouse bearing subtly different variations on a theme or word as a title.

    E.g.,

    Rabbit, Rabbi, Rabbet

    Which, perhaps, might draw some Welsh rarebit spam?

    Yes -- I, too, am retired... how can you tell?

    HAHAHAHA My mother used to make that when we were kids. I bet it has been about 45 years since we last had it. :o

    Just an example of the plethora of English/Scottish/Welsh/Irish jokes I grew up with. I once shared an office with three Scotsmen (before open plan - just me and the three Jocks in a room), and was the butt of Sassenach jokes every day.

    The original dog spammer has been banned. Maybe they will try another login name, and provide more dog spam.

    Dog spam? Sounds like a meat treat.

    And here I thought you were trying to get Rosie O’Donnell to join the forum...

    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.
