It seems like today have been a popular day for spamming. I lost count of how many spammers I kicked today. I think it is about 7 so far :lol:

If You see spam then please do following:

Look under the username on the left side. If it is says "User is banned from forums" You don't need to do anything as the spam is already being handled.

If the user has not been banned then please use the "Report post" function. Click on

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: NOT FOUND | MIME changed to 'text/html'
give a short description. Thanks to all those that do use the function.

And please do not post to the threads. Posting to the thread only give the spammers more views and potential clicks and we don't want that. If it takes a while before a mod can move the spam it is better that it just decends down the list. Sometimes it does take a while before a mod can move the spam because only seniors have access to all forums. The rest of us only have access to some of the forums.

Thanks :D

Thanks, Tommy. Good advice. The last spammer I saw here was already banned, which shows that you mods are on top of things. :)

Tried to keep up with one today and he was good. I even got warned not to post so much. But I think the little link thing worked well. I type really fast so I think the server couldn't keep up.

What to do with spam?
It is a staple in Hawaiian cuisine.
In it's simplest you slice it about 1/4 inch thick and fry it. It is then placed between two slices of bread and served hot. Mustard is the preferred condiment. :-) :-)

I have a Cannon with me at all times. You can't take the shot if you don't have something with which to shoot. :rolleyes:

I personally like it straight from the can. I take a spoon and make cylindrical cuts (like a spade shovel in the ground) and excavate my peices. Am I a freak? LOL :lol:

To the OP, I understand totally.

Hey Tommy, I too HAD troubles with spam on the forum that I run but I found a really effective solution which you guys can implement as well. Ever since vBulletin started using this great little plugin system it is so easy to install this little mods.

The mod is called Akismet Anti-Spam and was originally developed for vB3.5.4 but it works perfectly on 3.6.0 so should have no issue with 3.6.1 and .2

The mod can be found on the vBulletin.org forums here
http://www.vbulletin.o​rg/forum/showthread.ph​p?t=118421external link

Check it out. Works really well! It's caught all the spam that has passed through our forums since I installed it.

Spam - stick in some cloves, cover with brown sugar, bake until heated thru.

Tastes just like Spam with cloves and brown sugar.

Slice of grilled spam about 1/4" thick, layed on top of a properly formed dense block of seasoned sushi rice, then wrapped around the middle with a dried seaweed band. You find these about 5" or 6" long and about 2" thick (if my memory serves me) in the town Makawao on Maui, in a store well known for its cream puffs.
