Default HELP!! We Need to Stop these SPAMMERS!

With any internet website, there comes a certain degree of spam. I have been able to handle and hopefully keep the website free and clear of spam, but as of late, the spam-scum has become more sneaky about their tactics.

I have received a few complaints about users getting spam via Private Message. Being a moderator, they decided it is smart not to send these messages to me. The only way I can tell when users do this is when members and users let me know... Then I can get rid of those pieces of crap and try to make the forum a better place.

If you receive a PM or a Visitor message that you think may be spam or you know is spam, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post their username on this thread along with a small blurb of what they sent you (just copy and paste) so that I can terminate their membership.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and I hope not to hear from you!
