Agreed!

This way we can concentrate a little less on spammers and more on trolls and sig violators!

That suggestion has already been made and it is on the list. We will have new skins, but not today.

Besides there is a thread just for suggestions, and it is in this forum. You had to scroll past it to get to this one.

@Trifid's few week old thought: that's just funny.

But something somewhat funny I've been noticing, advertising within messages - they'll say something fairly purposeful or pose a somewhat general question, and then either leave some random links (ads) or put them in their signature.

Nice idea, spammers.

If it is in the sig, it is legal. If it is in the post, it will depend, but is usually spam. Most of these are reported and banned quite quickly, thanks to the help of many members.
