I don’t know who was so diligent at removing the spam postings this morning but thank you.  They are so friggn’ annoying.  I did block him so that they wouldn’t show up but still I’d like to find their email and mailbomb them.

I deleted some and blocked the IP. Most of the time they just sign up and spam on thier profile, I cant do anything about those. Sometimes they spam a post, this time they got creative and made 10 posts about fishing none the less, but they were just posts copied from someone else. So far all the spam accounts I have gotten rid of are from 1 specific country. If you get a burst of those again, feel free to PM Me or Twitch or Q-Man, its easier to get rid of them early.

The one I delete had 10 posts, it could have been twitch or Q-man who got rid of others.

If anyone sees spam, your are welcome to PM with the link to any one of us, I would rather that be done than leaving a spam post there until someone finds it. We dont have the ability to do anything with Bot accounts or spammers until they have posted and the sooner we get rid of them the better the forum will be. It looks bad for someone new to come on site and see spam posts.
