ATTENTION !!!
To all spammers and trolls that may come forth.
I, for one, hate spammers and trolls with a passion.
It does this community no good, causes endless reports, and otherwise, wastes everyone's time that happens to be involved.
YOU'RE NOT welcome here (not that you'll listen, but I said it anyway).
If you have no contribution to this forum other than useless junk, please find another place to hide, be it under a rock, or a bridge ("bridge" is for you trolls).
Let it be known, that "spam", the "bad kind" (who will be fried), and trolls, will not be tolerated for otherwise useless, non-helpful posts in any thread on this board, and any posts and/or accounts, will be summarily deleted without notice or warning.

If you can't respect this (our) community, with helpful insight, suggestions, or even the sometimes "heated" debate, you simply don't belong here, and will be dealt with accordingly.
If the staff misses you for some reason, be assured the fine members here won't, and you will quickly be brought to our attention.

Thanks for viewing, but kindly move on.

I never see any of this trolling or spam, I kinda feel left out. (Note to moderators: You must be doing your jobs too well.)

Seriously I never see anything bad.

I've seen it, and I've also seen spammers get the boot... after I clicked the "Report Post" (red ! in the post) button. :lol:

It's been here, whether you have seen it or not.
That's the point, to take care of it before you see it, why waste your time on it when you could be doing something helpful, besides reporting it.

Yes you have, and I thank you and the others that have done so.

We as staff, can't be here 24/7, and sometimes it takes some time to see the reports, but rest assured, if I don't see it first, one of the others will, and deal with it.
We may be Owner, Admin, or Mods., but we are most definitely not "all seeing/all knowing".
We also rely on you as members to help us make this community a better place, without the trash that will inherently try to invade, and disrupt.

The report button, as Strangerous has pointed out, is the best way to notify us.
Use it, to help keep us all "on topic".
I can't speak for the others, but when I log on, I typically check our Mod. control panel before anything else, for reported posts, and go from there, searching for something to eat.

Some if not most of these spammers are brought to our attention by members of the forum. Lets all keep up the good work!

I feel your pain, I had such a bad spammer problem at my forum that I had to rewrite code so that new members had to type in an answer that only a real person would know 8)

I second that. I don't see much, if any. Good job guys.

Hohuyoo095 appears to be a spammer/troll/unwanted quantity on the forum. May want to delete the account.
