Hrm... Is it just me, or does the spam seem to be increasing in volume? :) It's very sad that they have chosen to target such a great community. However, I have to tip my hat to all of the mods/admins; so far I haven't come across a single piece of spam that hasn't already been dealt with. Great job, guys and gals; keep up the good work :tazz:

:) Thanks, Dan. We try very hard to nip that junk in the bud as quickly as possible. I caught two of them within the past hour. Both banned immediately. :tazz:

Not even a warning?

When you register, it is assumed that you read (and agree) to the Terms of Use:

That's their warning :tazz:

Just to clarify. We have zero tolerance for someone that joins the site only to post spam. If you just joined, have made three posts, and they're all spam -- you're going to get banned. Other's that have been active here, but then made a post that's considered spam, will get a warning.
