What's with all these weird posts?

Why has the site suddenly attracted weird posts?

Porn videos, guys promoting French lessons with poor grammer English, Viagra
etc.etc. Nice to see the moderators removing them quickly too!

I was going to become a site sponsor with my bike tours, but seems the site is attracting some weird traffic, I wonder why?

I'm living proof of the old adage "the older I get the faster I was"

It's nothing new.

I would say at least 5-7 spam posts pop up during the course of a day, EVERY DAY, and even more spammers register with spam links in signatures as well.

There's probably 4 or 5 of us moderators checking constantly and removing spam as they pop up. And banning the user and in most cases their IP addresses as well.

If you see a bad post, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS! As tempted as you may be.

Use the red attention arrow in the right upper corner of the post to report it as spam and all the mods will get an email to remove it.

Thanks!

French lessons? I did not see that one, but if anyone needs some very very bad French insults to answer any of them Nigerian scammers....let me know! Those guys need English lessons......! But please excuse my grammar sometimes.....!

And yes to the following post from JCW......DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS.....I tried once to see where that crap was coming from and have been fighting some really bad spam ever since. Finally got most of it now after a month, at the beginning I was getting up to 20 a day!

But nice to see that our administrators are on top of it, everytime I report some, they disappear rather quickly.

P.S. French and Viagra......not necessary together....!

I always look at the Last Post column and see if the same name pops up as the last poster. If it does, I don't go there - unless, of course, it's a name of a forum member that I recognize.
