    I have a forum that i need to look legit even if it doesn't have any posts on it and someone keeps creating new accounts and spamming it with ringtone stuff(worst targetting ever). I ban the accounts and delete the posts but then i have 10 more spam posts. I suspect xrumer even though the posts don't have any links in them so i don't see how they would be of value.

    Why is this in the "introductions" forum? Also, some more info would help, like which script are you running?
