notified

[from Old French notifier, from Latin notificāre to make known, from nōtus known + facere to make]

I am done notifying Anu when spam occurs.
I am just ignoring it. When even the notifying causes so much
consternation, why bother?

Notifying is fine Luke, but why tell the world afterwards? Don't be upset that it annoys some people you are doing a good job but notifying people that you have notified people is over notifying don't ya think? I for one have had enough of this game hence why I tried to bring it back to words by posting the notify def.
Lets move on!

The point of telling that you have notified Anu is to save other people the effort of notifying Anu and also to save Anu the bother of fielding all the notifications.

Two comments were on the thread before mine, why pick on me?

I was only doing what I saw others doing when they "notified"
of spam.


I thought that was the point, Faldage, thanks.

We know by now that Luke will notify Anu before most of us will even have seen the spam, so if he's willing to continue to do so, the notification "notified" would no longer be necessary or useful, unpleasant as it is. That would be a real good job.

I am not willing, and don't care about the spam.
I am not a policeman.
