    Not sure what's going on here, but I've noticed a lot of spam threads have started. Seen 2 this morning in the few minutes I've been on.

    nah, you're fine. spammers, for the most part, do their work at night our time and i try to get rid of it early, but sometimes life gets in the way and ya'll get the opportunity to see what is for sale in the third world countries. some of them even think they can get on as members and run wild with their posting. ain't gonna happen. lately, pakistan is the hot and heavy bed for spammers. but some of them use servers based here in the USA and are able to slip through for a short time. but, enough ramblings, ya'll have a good day.

    I've been deleting them as soon as I see them. They seem to always get passed all we do to screen them out

    And a tip 'o the hat to you mods who do this on our behalf.
    That crap is annoying and we all appreciate you guys cleaning this out of our Forum. Usually we're unaware because you knock them out before we see them....maybe a good measure of your value is how quickly we bitch when exposed to the spam.
