User "Shazia" appears to be a spam-bot of some sort.     There doesn't seem to be an obvious way to report spam other than this...
It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness. That is life.

So was it a malleting or a headstart and hunt in the alaskan wilderness for our spammer?

Multiple air-strikes followed by malleting.  It was the only way to be sure.

Precision orbital laser platform strike.

Maybe I'm a bit of a Luddite, but next time if you can get geographic coordinates for a spammer, I'd be more than happy to schedule a blanket party.

I tend to take misuse of network technology personally, and there's no school like old school.
If it ain't broke, I'll fix it!

Land line ringer voltage applied to the nether regions.  If I remember correctly it's 90 V 20 Hz in pulses.

Nope, more like 130 VAC and 20 Hz is currently common ring voltage - But.

From the old Party Line days there are the Synchromonic, Decimonic and Harmonic spreads that run 45 to 150V at from 16 Hz to 66 Hz.  Western Electric, Kellogg, ITT, Stromberg Carlson, Leich and Automatic Electric all had variations on the same idea. And some worked better than others - you could hear 'Bell Taps' from the other frequencies and still know someone was getting called besides you.  If you are checking old phones at a flea market you may run across one or more of the above.

Between frequency sensitive ringers and connecting them Tip-Ground or Ring-Ground, they could have 8 parties on one loop, and not have to play with the "One long and 2 shorts for Mabel..." method.

And if you think it's fun getting zapped with ring voltage at a residence at the other end of the loop, try getting it straight from the fount at the CO sometime.  "Wa-ha-haaaa-hoooieeee!!!"

And now we know that you should have told Roger to SHOOT the gun, not 'use the platform to destroy the SPAMbot.'  Crashing it into the 'bot was a bit overkilly, surely?
