Please don't reply to it. There is a report button (the exclamation point on the bottom right) that you can use to highlight spam posts to the admins. Every morning, afternoon and evening I go looking for these to deal with spammers. It's hard to find posts that you respond to because I won't be able to go through every thread. So to help me, please use this feature. Makes it easier for me to keep the forums clean. :)

Thanks.

removed the spam message to avoid promotion of their products. Please don't quote them. ;)

I'm bumping this again. Please don't feed the trolls/spammers. They are usually easy to pick out: they have huge ads in their posts, they have links to sites to try products, they are NOT vegan in their discussion (advocating chicken or lean beef for diets), the language they use is often stunted and awkward, and if you pasted their exact words into Google it'd match about 100 other sites with the exact same words.

If you do find posts you think might be spam hit the red exclamation mark and let me know. I ban these idiots by IP and username in hopes at keeping them at bay or to a dull roar. But sometimes I miss it because someone legit has responded to them and I don't catch it.

I appreciate all that you do, SyrLinus. Your efforts have kept this forum pleasant, clean, and respectable such that I can refer people to it often and with pride. I got your back.

What's with the weird rash of advertisers in here this summer? Is this typical or is it simply a banner year for spam?

It seems to come and go. I may have to put back the mechanism that requires us to approve the first post before they can post freely.

Works for me, Sir. Might even cut down on the flash-in-the-pan newbies who post three times, then disappear into the ether.

I think it's time, SyrLinus. The rash of spam is spreading--I found 6 this morning alone. Used to be only 6 in a year. Looks like word got out about our website and the parasites are swarming. It'll only get worse if you don't bolt the electronic gate, so to speak.

I've enabled the post requirements along with additional registration questions so we'll see how that goes.
