    What happened to new members's threads having to be approved first before they can be seen? I've seen at least two new members spamming the same site over and over again.. not nice at all.. :mad: and the site sucks too!

    Ray_ mond,

    Most spam posts get picked up automatically through the software, some slip through the net. It takes time for the mods to notice sometimes (IE they are not online 24/7)

    Best thing to do when you find one is to report it as a reported post gets emailed to all mods when you report it so if we are not online but at work for example we would notice it.

    Best not to copy the posts here, since you are just continuing to advertise the spam site!
