No kidding! We have been deleting a ton a spammers lately. Confused

It has been a topic of discussion among staff. I believe RocketFoot has been looking into a suitable solution.

Actually, Spam isn't too bad fried, and grilled it's even better.
(But if you have gout it's probably better to avoid Spam altogether).

One or two a day, not that big of a problem AFAIAC, plus, we staff members have a one button goodbye spammer tool, quick, simple and efficient. It's the nature of the internet. I've seen worse.

I believe they use certain keywords.... I think those posts are specifically for search engines to find. That's my guess.

Most aren't from this country, and likely don't speak any English at all. They're just copy/pasting gibberish. Their goal isn't to get you to read the post, it's to get you to click the link.

They get paid when people click the links.

I killed one at PAFOA this morning that the thread title was actually pertinent to firearms as was the post, but it was still spam.

I haven't seen one of those for quite a while, but I've seen them.
