A note about spam posts...

Post by millster »

We don't get a lot of them here but when we do, it seems people think it's fun to reply to them.Please do us a favor and just report the thread without replying to it. The spammers don't see the replies and it serves no purpose at all. And no, it's not a good cover for postwhoring to increase your count because when the thread is removed, the posts are removed first thereby decreasing your post count. Thanks!

Well, that's not true this week. new user ihjwernml579 has dropped over 300 in the last few days.

Its important to never click on any of the links that the spammers post. One one hand they might be just some obnoxious marketing ploy, but they could just as easily be links to virus laden evil.
