I got close to 10 last night. I think I chased them out of the Sports forum. Lets see if they go back there. I'll be ready to pick them off if they do. Like shooting ducks in a barrel.

Another day, another dozen dalcrapa in the Sports Lounge and Off-Topic General section hard-deleted.

To some extent entertaining to catch a spam bot red-handed (conceiving his/her series of 4 spam posts) already after post #1. Gets perm-banned at once and the profile page still indicatng "Viewing Forum The Sports Lounge".

My suggestion for limiting access to the OT areas to only logged-on users would definitely help, since the threads/posts would have zero SEO relevance if the search engines can't crawl them.....

To make "unlimited" car forums grateful. Do you even know there is a "private" forum of this kind already (don't forget to log in to check): https://f20.1addicts.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=7? It doesn't look particularly flourishing.

And take it as a compliment, because Zito and Switek were no real bug busters but smart undercover cops helping Lt. Castillo's team to catch the bad guys.

Artemis So what's the verdict? Should we be zapping them before they add the link? Or waiting?
