Hi Merk & Tituba There's a new user called punchy you should check out. Two short innocuous posts, and two at these locations that look very spammy to me. http://www.barbarasher.com/boards/viewt ... ht=#196755 http://www.barbarasher.com/boards/viewt ... ht=#196753 skannie

Since it's somewhat on topic for that forum I'm leaving that post for now. If it looks like it was done by an automated spam bot, i'll get rid of it. I'm waiting to see if the poster responds to my question. More then likely it'll get removed since it seems odd they joined the board and their 2nd post is pointing to another site.

Changed my mind, it's a spammer. It might be an actual person making the posts instead of a bot, but i'm pretty sure it's spam one way or another, so the post has been removed as has the user.

If you do find spam on the board, click on the little exclamation mark in the post. You can use that to report the post as being spam. This thread has been locked now so that people will use that tool instead.
