Sure! I enjoy looking at them now and again, thanks.

I took notice of this post from JimRob yesterday in response to a RP supporter on the FReepathon thread who asked him if RP supporters were welcome on FR:

"Obnoxious flaming Paul spambots who can’t control themselves often get the boot from FR."

I took that to mean that JimRob sees Ronulans as distinct from obnoxious Paulbots, which certainly makes him a much more even-handed wielder of power than I might be. That's probably a good thing.:-)

Do you think Jim Thompson would mind if we hit the "abuse" button on those we think might qualify as "obnoxious flaming Paul spambots who can’t control themselves"? Or would it appear too close to the doctrine of unclean hands since we're part of the buck a zot paulbot gang?

(Courtesy ping to Mr. Robinson since I'm posting about him)

Aha, my understanding grows. If I find someone who might qualify as an obnoxious flaming Paul spambot, I will alert you. Absolutely Nobama would be better than me and so I ping him thusly.

There's some fancy PaulBot Zottin' going on today!

Wave bye bye to JakeS here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2835901/posts?page=2#2

That brings our Freepathon pledge to $12 each, for a combined total of $96 for the month of January...so far.

Wonder if we’ll make it to $20 each by the 31st.

That would be awesome! At this point it looks as though we'll make it to at least a combined $100, which didn't look nearly as certain a couple of days ago. Wow, hitting $20 each by the 31st would be pretty close to perfect though. Here's hoping the "obnoxious flaming Paul spambots who can't control themselves" (™JimRob) will feel a resurgence of delusional zeal after SC. :-)

Here's one to keep an eye on. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2838854/posts

It looks like a promising thread to catch another Paulbot in our zapper. Gosh, I hope so! We only have 4 days left in the month to get us over the $100 hump. Pickings have been pretty slim this week.

Just damn. The one guy I was pretty sure might get a zot had 3 of his posts deleted, but he lived to tell the tale. Maybe the thread can snare another Paulbot though. I just bumped it, trying to wave a shiny object in their direction.

“Just damn. The one guy I was pretty sure might get a zot had 3 of his posts deleted, but he lived to tell the tale. Maybe the thread can snare another Paulbot though. I just bumped it, trying to wave a shiny object in their direction.”

I’ll go to the thread and look around. This is like fishing. My husband bought me a rod and reel and put a weight on the end and said I should go outside and practice throwing the line. I said I didn’t need to practice. So, we go fishing and he says I need to throw the hook in a certain spot “over there”, fairly long way away. Then he said, “but you won’t hit it”. Sooo, I kept my eye on that spot and throw that hook and it went exactly in the middle of that spot. Husband said, “Damn, I had to practice years to do that.” My hand/eye coordination has always been excellent.

So. have my rod and my eye and will go there and hunt.

Happy hunting (or fishing), Marcella.

I found another guy who hadn't made a single post in six months, then showed up this week and posted four posts actually telling people they need to vote for RuPaul. I'm pretty sure that is a zotting offense, right? For the first time I can remember, I actually pinged The Boss on a reply to the guy, hoping this might get us over the $100. :-)

Check out his posting history

Some pretty good zot material in that thread, but it closed down pretty quickly. I think he saw the writing on the wall and backed off. His time will come...

Woohoo! I didn't even notice that it was a December 27th thread that someone had just bumped back up. I pinged JimRob on the thread and now the guy is one crispy Paulbot! We made it to $100! I'll add them up in a neat column and post the totals tomorrow. Who knows, we may even get another one, we have 3 more days!

Well rats, onyx. Apparently it’s too late for me to be anything but lost, too. I have to retract that last PaulBot Zot. It appears the guy actually was already zotted on Dec 27th, before I commented to him and pinged Jim on the thread tonight. *blush*

Sad to say, we haven’t made it to $100 yet.

Quick update. Thanks for being so understanding about the late night embarassment where I pinged JR to a paulbot he had already zotted four weeks ago. :-)

We have roughly 36 hours remaining before our end-of-the-month $$ tally and January donation to the FReepathon for the PaulBot Zot pledge. As you know, we only need one more PaulBot Zot to bring our total over $100.

Marcella made a valiant lage-night effort to get us over the hill here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2839738/posts?page=209#209. Thanks, Marcella, for being a tireless hunter for the cause.

Little Jeremiah has also pinged to some threads that looked so promising, but sadly we didn't get our zot, and not for lack of trying. Thanks, LJ.

Keep your eyes open for the next 36 hours, gang. Will the illusive Paulbot surface from his hidey hole and poke his head up just long enough for us to get it zotted? Stay tuned.

Here is the final January post and tally for the Great FReepathon PaulBot Zot Pledge.

Special thanks to Marcella for bringing it home in style, hunting up a rare twofer, and sending our total over the $100 goal.

Wave bye bye to CGalen here:

And wave bye bye to Acadiunus here:

So, here are our final January recipients of the coveted PaulBot Extraordinaire Award:

PaulBot Zots

E.K. Crossbow
dubie
RayTheSpook
keyd
WilliamHouston
Vintage Freeper
Leader_Of_The _Conservatives
Hellbender
Republic_of_Secession
Golux
Linda Liberty
JakeS
CGalen
Acadiunus

That’s 14 Paulbot Zots at $1/each = $14 per each of us, for a combined total of $112 between the eight of us for the month of January. Go, us!

Could you guys weigh in on how you’d like to acknowledge your pledge on the FReepathon thread? Here are three options:

1. We could post one collective acknowledgement of the $112 donation, with individual credit given to each donor in the acknowledgement
2. Each of us could post our individual $14 donation on the FReepathon thread, acknowledging that we’re a part of the PaulBot Zot pledge
3. We could combine the above two options. One post tonight for the collective $112 donation, then each individual could post his $14 donation on the Freepathon thread at the time he process his contribution

Your thoughts and preferences are invited.

The quarterly FReepathon is still ongoing, with the meter currently sitting at 42%. There’s always the choice that we could re-set our reader board to zero and start our PaulBot Zot pledge over again for the month of February. I’m up for that, with the understanding that everyone’s financial situation and enthusiasm level is different. If you would like in or out for continuing the PaulBot Zot pledge for the month of February, beginning anew at zero dollars, please let me know (either here or by FReepmail) and we’ll go from there.

Finally, in honor of our grand achievement, I fixed up a graphic to commemorate the occasion. I hope you don’t mind!

You all go ahead as you wish. I will hold mine to see how our FReepathon goes along. I already sponsored Round #1 of our New Monthly Donor Campaign for $100, and if I’m needed again, I might add to the $14 to sponsor another Round or Half Round. Well done Marcella!!! and everyone!!!!

Thanks for the heads up, EnglishCon. We now have our first PaulBot Zot for the month of February.

There are now six of us in this round of the buck a PaulBot Zot pledge, bringing this month's FReepathon pledge to a combined total of $6 so far.

Here’s your late night/early morning PaulBot double-bagger ZOT ping!

You’ll find both of them on this thread. If you need a good laugh today, one of the PaulBots begged admin mod to ban him, and had a very special request as to where he wanted to be sent. These PaulBots are into some pretty kinky things, my goodness!

Wave bye bye to bobbyw24 here

And wave bye bye to his super freaky little friend, flyfire here. (The replies back to flyfire are not to be missed)

This gives us 3 PaulBot Zots so far. At $3 per each of us, the combined total donation for this month’s FReepathon pledge is currently $18.

This will be the final PaulBot Zot ping. JimRob just posted a new FReepathon thread saying that it will be the last thread for this quarter's FReepathon, which is now only about $1.6K away from meeting its goal.

We've only had three PaulBot Zots for the month of February, and none since February 12th.

At this time, unless any of you object, I move to suspend our PaulBot Zot Team and get our pledges into this quarter's FReepathon before it closes.

Our February pledge currently only amounts to $3 each (unless you joined those of us who decided to kick in an extra buck for PaulBot flyfire for the bonus entertainment value of the replies to his zotting.)

I'm also going to propose that we each consider tossing in an extra buck or two to round our individual pledges up to $5. Of course, any donation at all helps keep the lights on, and whatever amount you donate will be appreciated.

As per last month, it worked well just to have each of us post our individual PaulBot Zot donations on the FReepathon thread.

Thanks to all of you for helping to make it fun to rid FR of a lot of its PaulBot infestation, and for sending the rest of them scurrying underground like cockroaches!

Hi, EnglishCon. I just rounded mine up to $5 too.

I'm in for another game for the next FReepathon. By then, I'm betting a lot of the quieter (smarter) PaulBots will be emboldened all over again and come out of hiding. :-)

Sorry for being late to the party. Major Internet access problems here yesterday. Never got up-and-running consistently until 5 PM or so. And by then it was dinner/leisure time with my lovely wife. (And, watch NCIS I might add...)

Just donated $10 in honor of the PaulBot Zot ping list. It’s been a fun time.
