  1. Early in January 2011, when the student population of RedBrick were
  2. under pressure studying for their exams, a strange phenomenon occurred.
  3. Some students resorted to spamming channels with figlets and the like to
  4. get an intense buzz of adrenaline before the 1st semester exams.
  5. The spam wasn\'t tolerated.
  6. The associates and majority of the students were angered, forcing the
  7. committee to implement an automatic 24hour ban at the first sign of a
  8. figlet. \#lobby went +t for the remainder of the exams (with something
  9. to the effect of \"WARNING FIGLET = 24 HOUR BAN\") and the spammers
  10. looked for new ways to get their kicks. They came up with the ingenious
  11. concept of collaborative figleting, in which 3 or more members would
  12. create a single figlet - If you\'re only posting two lines you can\'t
  13. get banned, right?
  14. WRONG

  37. The ops went on a banning rampage and our heroes memory lived on for
  38. those 24 hours in /bans \#lobby. There was something like 10 or 12
  39. people on the banlist at one stage. Soon the carnage spread to other
  40. channels (mainly \#intersocs) and even pms.
  41. After exams, order was somewhat restored with spam returning to
  42. normal(ish) levels. [Category:Humour](/Category:Humour "wikilink")
