Rant - Spam Postings
It seems that not a day goes by where some lint head comes in here and starts advertising his or her gimmick. :furious: Today, it's cell phones. I don't get it. It's rude, obtrusive, and a few other adjectives that I can't repeat. I IMMEDIATELY report the post as Spam and I really have to take my hat off to the administrator, because Spam doesn't last too long around here. But it still leaves me wondering what it is in the spammer's personality that makes him/her think they are above civilized behavior... that the rules don't apply to them. I'd love to take a staple gun and put one into their upper lip... right beneath the nose. :boxing:

Well first, understand that these aren't people registering on the site and posting... it's a "Bot" or a computer program that goes out and auto registers on thousands of forums at a time and posts this junk over and over again.

I found some new ways to trip them up so hopefully we will see less soon.

And we'd like to thank you for reporting those Secret Squirrel
It really helps us keep the place clean when users like yourself report such things

Thanks to you and all who use the "bad post" button!
