Default More Spam then Tech Help?

I was wondering if anyone else saw the growing number of Spam threads in the forums?

Basically Guy, what you can do is to just report these spammy posts. See the Report this post under every post? Just click on it and just state why you think that particular post/thread deserves to be taken off. In that way, you help mods. They can't be going round every thread to check.

We, as members can help too. Then can spam be prevented and destroyed.

Agreed! I like agreeing! LOL...There is much spam...i hope I ain't causing any percent of it but I think adding more moderators is the right thing to do!

Just curious...does off-topic fun count as spam? If it does, I'd better shape up fast .

No just as long as its in the correct forum.

SPAMing is self promotion of sites, affilate links, porn, chain letters ect
