list SPAM last night

Hi Everybody.

It looks like we somehow got a bout of spam in the discussions last night.  I've deleted it all and blocked the user, and I'm looking into how that could have happened so that we can fix whatever hole they used to get in.

Really sorry that happened, stay tuned for an update and a fix for this issue.

Effectiveness of a full page takeover overlay to promote an internal product?

A client of mine is requesting a full page overlay takeover, essentially dimming out the entire site and displaying a promotional ad right in the center of the user's viewpoint. The idea is that the user will see this takeover on their 2nd pageview, and will be forced to hit the close button if they're not interested.

I personally think it's bad UX design, a complete slap in the face to the user and should be executed differently. I believe this approach will actually decrease regular page views, because some people will just be annoyed and leave the site entirely.

child-folders and resource objects like files that need to be displayed.

There can be upwards of 1000's of objects (folders and files) that are in
that parent folder. Loading the entire set all at once has two negatives:
