I don't think anyone would want to use spaces in their username, let alone their display name, LET ALONE their ...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]I'd love ot hear their reasoning on why they don't allow spaces.[/quote]  My guess: they do some CSV processing on usernames based on spaces, because what's a database?

    [quote user="blakeyrat"]they don't have a way of setting post count[/quote]  Who even cares about setting a post count?  Isn't the correct answer import all 507 posts by this user.  Their post count is now 507, because "SELECT count(1) FROM fucking_posts WHERE fucking_user='this_fucking_user';" ...

    [quote user="Alex Papadimoulis"] Well it's trivial to change the import threshold. Could make it 10. [/quote] Why not make it 0?  Import everything.  Just make sure to carry over the "banned for spamming" flag. Fuck those guys. [quote user="Alex Papadimoulis"] But still doesn't solve ...

    [quote user="boomzilla"] Isn't the real problem with his stupid readers who get hysterical seeing ads for stuff they disagree with?[/quote]  That particular comic author has no problem telling stupid users to fuck off.

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"] I think, as usual, you really misunderstand the idea of the "social contract", friend. Nobody is making you look at ads, but if you are going to look at my content, you are going to look at my ads.
