Is there anything that can be done about all the spam messages posted on the forum? The ones with links that lead to spyware infested porn and *SPAM* sites? The amount of stuff seems to be on the increase every day...

Thanks!

They should be deleted on sight. Be that as it may, anyone who actually clicks on one of those links deserves to be bombarded with spyware and the like.

I like red, but I think I'm going to go from choclate cherry to midnight ruby. And from thence to a true black. unless i really like the midnight ruby. Ah colors not found in nature, what fun!

I remove it as I see it, but unfortunately, it's not spam created by bots, but by real people who have nothing better to all day than create accounts on message boards all over the internet. They clearly have more free time than I do.

Best you can do is PM me with any threads you see, and don't reply to them.

I'll clean them up swiftly.

If those are real people, they're not that good at it.

Hey Mikey.

A really nice forum feature would be a 'View active topics' link that enabled a listing that left out posts made by certain posters. The active topic list today is just completely splattered by this CharlesSanchez6 asshole. A feature like this would only require typing his username in and Bob's your uncle.

I'm Surprised That CharlesSanchez6 Hasn't Been Banned For All The Junk Spamming He's Done Yet :(

If I get my hands on a Predator Drone can I link the guidance system to my computer to trace the Spam back to its’ source so the unmanned craft can launch a Tomahawk missile at Chucky Sanchez’s' base of operations....Just wondering???
