Is it just me, or is anyone else getting fed up ofthe amount of Spam on this forum. When i checked, at 7.50am this morning, the last 9 posts were all Spam Cursing.

I really do wish someone would sort this!

There has been quite a lot of spam recently.
Is it all from the same person, joining under different names?
Difficult to fully eradicate though.

I tend to look in most mornings and have been marking the posts as spam but they do not seem to get deleted as quickly as they used too.

It makes me angry to see them. Not even sure what they are supposed to be about with most carrying a training shoe picture and a whole load of rubbish text

Spam cannot be stopped from appearing, it can only be removed once posted and I'm sure all will be removed by the Moderator when he logs on...… Cool Cool

In the meantime, 'spam' their spam...

Add a reply as to the effect the company are thieves, liars, crooks - don't use them etc...
Could actually be a bit of fun.

The people who do it have no connection with the companies.
They are just sad, loser web-trolls who don't have a life and think it's 'fun' to bombard forums with rubbish.
