  • Spammer issues.

    As many of you have probably noticed, the growth of the board in membership and popularity has...encouraged the growth of several people seeking to sell you computer equipment and, apparantly, cranes. This is a similar process to the way warm, moist environments encourage the growth of mold and other semi parasitical creatures. I and the other moderators are doing our best, up until now on a case by case basis. This morning, I took slightly more agressive measures to stop the problem, but it's going to take some time, I think, to get it further under control, if, indeed, it isn't just a cost of having a forum such as this. Please continue to report posts that are in this category as you find them, and we'll get them as quickly as possible.

      What exactly would be considered a "spam post?"

          I don't think there's ever been a construction worker just casually surfing the Web who saw one of those ads and thought "Hey, I could use a new crane..."

              That was an answer to your question. The reason you haven't seen anything about cranes is because that thread was deleted. Trust me, it was pretty sad.

              I know! Weird if you ask me... Like I'm really going to make an impulse crane purchase after a game of Neon Wars.

                If anyone here buys a crane before they buy a copy of Neon Wars, though, I'm banning them!!!

                    Why Don't you have a room specificly for Spammers, just call it Spam
                    I'v seen many other forums do it .
                    It lets spammers spam without spamming up the interesting and importent and otherwise un-spamified parts of the forum.

                      What makes you think the spammers will want to spam in there? There would be no point. Not that spamming isn't already pointless. :rolleyes:
