I am disappointed to see even one spam post - because more can easily follow.

Till now today, it looked to be a closed chapter, but no...
Four spam posts now, and the link in Ratty''s post now points, incorrectly, to your newest post. ROFL.

Blame it on The Donald, lol.
And, here we are, full of spam, once again. A quick Google search of one of the numbers reveals they've also registered a bunch of domain names. Whois shows them to be from Mumbai.

Hey guys, I know this is a hot topic, but let's try to keep the spam discussion in the spam thread. We're working on it and have recently implemented a number of things to help with this, some more effective than others. And there are more to come. We'll be updating that thread shortly too.
Oops. Didn't see Ryan's post because the email alert didn't take me to the right place lol. Never mind.
