Josh, this character posted 143 topics into the Introduction forum, each nothing more than a commercial promotion for drubs. I reported several, and hope you realize what this person has managed to accomplish. Unfortunately, I doubt there is much of anything that can be done to prevent others from doing the same thing, and this could mean the demise of not only these forums, but those of anyone who trash like this can infiltrate.

Roadside, thanks for the report. I've banned the user and deleted the spam. Unfortunately, because we have such a large amount of views happening on this site, we will always be the target of spammers. I usually check the site a few times a day and delete the spam as I can. I'm constantly on the lookout for new ways to block these idiots, but they keep finding new ways in.

Feel free to just report one of the instances of spam, know that I will read it and take action. I can delete all of the postings by one user in one fell swoop, so if they post repeatedly all of those posts will be gone with one keystroke.
