It probably will only get worse for all the reasons MH81 mentioned and the fact that this site is growing all the time and spammers will be more likely to hit it.IMHO. But I think the moderators and software are doing a GREAT job keeping the spammers at bay. Thanks guys. I see our newest member is mmpgtwjg. That doesn't sound like a guy that wants to know how to get his Kohler running again.

I have also noticed that when you look at the new content and go to members, the list is about 95% spammers! But, like said the software and mods are doing a great job of keeping the site clean! Good job guys!

I don't even like the canned stuff! I'm just glad we have the software to take care of most of these folks, or we would all be in deep do-do.

Okie-dokie, I just want to add one warning point to Tink's profile. This might take awhile..... okay, that..............then that.................what's this button do?.................oh, crap...................back, back, back.......

Upon further review, a verbal warning is just fine. NO SPAM!

What's sad is that Spam must really work, they send it out more and more.

Yea and then they cry because they have been taken. They say there is one born every minute, that means there are a lot of suckers out there.

Almost 30 years ago I was a sales manager with a large chain of car dealerships, even leasing was new back then. I still remember some facts about and why certain systems are used to sell things to people, in fact I still use some of it today in my HVAC business, the buyer isn't always in control with a real salesman, but now a days most "salesman" are just order takers.

#1 rule in sales, every no gets you closer to a yes :thumbs: :D
