SPAM: Anyone notice?

Our SPAM catcher is catching nearly all of the SPAM. In addition to that, we're also sifting through posts to make sure it never reaches you.

Actually we do get a lot of spam on this forum, spam also is what people call post whoring on this board while most just call it spamming the board.

post whoring sounds more constructive

Glad you've got a system in place to filter out the garbage and keep it free from our place of discussion.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

The kind of SPAM I'm talking about most of you don't see. We get tons of messages everyday for pharmaceuticals, Viagra, Cialis and various other types of crap.

Yeah, something like that.

There's actually quite a bit going on in the background the general membership never sees. I ony brought it up because we had a rash of SPAM all at once and people took notice. No one (other than me ) has noticed the lack of SPAM since then, though.
