Hey all -

So for a while we were getting really really persistent and voluminous spam posts with (predominantly) Korean characters in it. It was causing a lot of time and trouble for the mods and admin. 

Due to steps we took to counter it, some people have found themselves autobanned without notice. We have figured out it’s because they are using characters either on the forum or in PM that are not in the Roman alphabet. 

Morgan continues to work on resolving this issue, but in the meantime, here’s a heads up.

I'm in the habit of using arabic numerals in all my posts. Should I be switching to roman for the time being?

For at least all of MMXIX.

The autoban includes quoting past posts.

We'll unban you if we see it happen, but if you could avoid quoting any foreign alphabet until we get a better workaround it would be easier for everyone.

That would put you solidly within the American mainstream, which has an aversion to Arabic numerals. Sadly, most Americans are not aware that the Muslim ban did not also cover Arabic numbers, which are quickly infiltrating American society.

The ban on "Muslim math" was one of my favourite parts of the last season of Veep.

    • I know for a fact they will get back to some people next week. I think it’s a good sign you’re not on the waitlist, that means you may be just will be accepted right away. :)!  Especially with your stats. I owe you a cookie 🍪 if I’m wrong. But I’m feeling pretty confident about your chances. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼   
    • Also by the way Kiki - I read in Ottawas forums, that someone contacted the admissions office, and they said wait list was coming out early June. Maybe they're bullshitting, I don't know. Go check it out.  Once again, sorry for the confusion. Can't believe I said I got wait listed at Uottawa this year thinking it was last year like a crazy person lol. Maybe I'll call admissions of both Ottawa and Windsor myself on Monday, and find out whats going on with wait lists, then Ill post on this forum.     
    • I'm no newbie to Toronto since I live in Etobicoke but I'd rather be closer to school. Any ideas about the best place to live outside of Osgoode Chambers?  I'd rather live with law students if I have to share accommodations. Side note: If anyone is looking for a roommate feel free to reach out to me and maybe we can look around together!   
    • I definitely think you should call since they've started pulling from the waitlist
    • For anyone not from the Victoria area,  what are you doing for housing?  Any areas you looking to avoid?
