    This has been happening for years now. I just report these kind of idiots, mods usually remove & ban them quick

    The forum gets a couple thousand posts a day, and the visible spam posts are rarely more than a couple dozen for a few hours each night.

    Personally, I think that's a great job, both on the part of the automatic filters, and on the part of the volunteer mods who clean up everything that gets through.

    yes, I would agree 100%, but > the spam text is SO STUPID... it just shows that somebody is using the mass-posting software and bhw is just another website in its list..

    ;) a person could make killing by selling this software to Jr VIPs of bhw :D :D .. and these spam posts would be MUCH smarter ;)

    Is there a option for mod approval when a newbie starts a new thread? Perhaps that would fix the problem

    I live in India. I believe that spammer is from India too. I am thinking of getting a shotgun pretty soon. I will shoot that bastard if I ever manage to find him. :/

    I have a gut feeling that if I'd ever encounter these spams, it means I'm on here too much. Lol... I've seen it twice already.
