Spam-spam-spam us here!


If I were a Mod, that would really get on my nerves, having to delete each post an idiot made like that. There are some who join and have a link to their business and make a one word post just to advertise their company, that really chaps my rear, it is hard to keep from saying something to them and sometimes I do. I hate to open a page of posts and all there is on that whole page is some post hound posting just to advertise or run his post count up. I have never understood why it was so important for a person to have so many posts. Whew, now I got one more post count. Sorry for the rant there.

Question

Spam-spam-spam us here!


Being a Brit the gastronomic form of Spam is well known to me, however the electronic form is a little more mercurial and I was hoping someone could enlighten me.

Targeted spam such as the Calgaryroofpost in this thread:

Flat roof removal and repair.

How does this work? Has Calgary Flat Roof signed up for some service that has someone lurk on the forum, and then create a new profile to promote their services when a suitable post pops up? I would want my money back personally.

Just curious...

Calgaryroof IP is from India(IN) in region Southern and Eastern Asia so I imagine yes this is exactly what is happening... Just click the Red ! in the lower left corner and report them when you see them. We boot them, they're spammers.
We get them and dozens more every day.

Spam is unpaid advertising----we get a lot of sneak thieves here that want to use this forum to sell products without having to pay for the privilege--

The postings are confusing and rude to our members.

Yep. You can delete one post, a whole thread or one letter.

It would be pretty funny if those silly ol' lugheaded spammers stopped spamming any other threads in the forum and only spammed this thread, wouldn't it?

I think he's about to be banned.... .

I always wonder why they waste their time registering and posting their useless information.

Too much time on their hands, I guess.

Just so you know...90% of the people that visit this site are from the USA.

I doubt the handful of people that actually reside in the GTA have much use for a limo service on their way to the hardware store
