Recently we've had a new generation of spammers coming on board. Unlike the old type where they start a thread with 'best nike prices' etc, these guys post in existing threads with one line that has something to do with the thread and have a link in their signature/name/both to their on-line site.
I can't check every post, so if y'all spot one of these let me know please

Cheers

Edit: just hit the 'report post' function on their post

Parihaka- I am curious why this rule is in effect. On other forums they allow you to post a link to your own site, why can't you do this on this blog? While it would drive traffic away it also lets you know if other posters have blogs or biographies elsewhere on the web.

Again, I mean no offense I am just curious.

You can link to blogs via your personal profile, though some members who've been around long enough to establish their bonafides do link to their own blogs if that blog is specific to the topic in hand.
Part of the reason our forum is successful is because we keep spam out: whether spambot links to porn sites or genuine individuals seeking to up the clicks on their own sites by spreading links across forums such as this to up their own traffic.
The only sites that advertise on this site are the ones who pay for it, we're not going to dilute their impact by allowing everyone else in for free.

Don't know if I can concentrate that much but I'll try...

(If I weren't so drunk I'd do a silly html link to have fun...)

Wait!
