There's been a lot of Spam adverts on these sites recently.....I blame the people who actually buy from these &^^&*£^%!^%
if everyone said "I am not going to buy anything from a company who Spams me" then they would not send these damn things out.

The web site has been undergoing some upgrades recently. There is a glitch that interferes with the usual screening the moderators do to remove spam before it gets on the forum. So, please bear with us, we're deleting it when we see it, but for the time being spam is getting onto the forum. Hopefully in the end the system will be better than before at preventing spam and still giving easy access to new users.

Hi mchlbrmn,

Wouldn't it be easier for the moderators, while the problem is not resolved, that the participants of the forum are able to report spam somehow? Perhaps a button beside the messages posted? This way you wouldn't have to be looking for them.

Take care,

There is already a button (upside down triangle) with a "!", which is next the the "Quote" button.

Thanks! I hadn't realized what the purpose for this button was.
