Spam?

I've seen dozens of suggestions by forum members on how to reduce spam or even possibly eliminate it, and ADMIN has obviously chosen not to do anything about it. Maybe they are inviting spammers to post and somehow getting paid for it. just a thought.

not a hershey kiss or a oilfay athay. This is actually on the internet, some wacko believes the government is controlling everyone with microwaves. The hat is supposed to deflect the waves.

I find that IF you cut the can of Spam into quarters, then stick a piece on a bun with LOTS of mustard, and have a cold beer to chase it down with, it's POSSIBLE to choke it down....

Is there anybody actually on this site that has the power to change anything? I see active moderators but the only thing I have seen from the "Admin" was a post about how to sell my car on ebay.

Is the site just owned by a faceless group that bought the name before somebody else did?

I swear Spam was a lot better when I was a kid, at least that's how I remember it. Really good sliced and fried in a pan with flour coating. Today's Spam doesn't measure up.

According to Brian Krebs, noted IT security blogger of krebsonsecurity.com, "For extra coin each month, one can rent a bulletproof server with a license for XRumer, a black hat search engine manipulation tool that automates the registration of new Web forum accounts and the spamming of links on those forums, all in a bid to boost the search engine rankings of the spamvertized site. If you operate a blog and have had to deal with what appear to be automated, link-filled comments, chances are good that XRumer was involved in some way.

For a $20 one-time setup fee, your server will come pre-packaged with links for forums that XRumer is able to spam, including thousands of Web pages in top-level domains that are often given more ranking weight by search engines, such as .edu, .gov and .mil."

XRumer is probably responsible for all the cellphone spam on this site.

Wikipedia info on XRumer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XRumer
