    no more than likely, it won't. spammers are everywhere, it's not the same person coming back, it's different ones. the best we can do is remove their garbage as soon as we can.

    What are these spammers doing? Are they PMing people?

    They are going to each individual forum and posting crap like this. As one example:
    you get Free $250 Gas Card !

    you get Free $250 Gas Card !
    this is really great (website link removed) - Get it

    Imagine if we never removed any of these annoying ads, the forum would be overrun with spam.

    That's because you are in bed sleeping, (so am I), seems a lot of the spam comes early morning from 3am to 8am.

    I am just glad that someone is there to remove it. I have seen so many forums, groups and even websites spammed off the net.

    Be sure to give some praise to Jodi for this one. She is on the ball and usually catches this stuff before it really lasts very long. As always Jodi, you are the best!
