Post subject:  Spam posts

The forum here tries its best to weed out the robots that come here to spam worthless garbage, but occasionally one gets through and has to be dealt with. If you all could do me a huge favor and just send me a PM of the username who is doing this, and please do not respond or quote the spammer in the thread, it makes extra work for me because then I have to track down your quoted post and delete it too.

Also, the report function is not the best way to report these spammers, please just PM me directly. The report function has been abused in the past due to people not liking what other people say, difference in opinions, etc. That's not what the report function is for.

Thanks for your cooperation! :mrgreen:

Post subject:  SPAM Monitoring

Recently there have been a number of spammers that have invaded and harassed the forums. Thanks to those who PMed me, we mostly removed the problem.

I would like everyone to be just as vigilant in sniffing out spammers, you can PM me or Darkshade and we'll do our best to solve the problem quickly (real life notwithstanding).

We are currently undergoing a number of security checks to help reduce the number of spammers, but we also know that we cannot ever be truly spam-proof (as the saying goes: "nothing is true, everything is permitted").

Thank you for your continued support, and hope to continue making this community a useful tool, and a fun place to be.
