For some reason, we've had an influx of spammers lately.
They're easy to spot: They always have a signature that's an advertising link.
In addition, they always post exactly two times.
You can ignore them, I delete them pretty quickly.

Mike - Thanks for keeping our forum clean! It's the unsung early morning work that means our forum doesn't become clogged with junk.

Also - if you see a posting like Mike is describing, don't respond after it in the same threads. I think it might make it harder for Mike to remove. These are posts that are "generic" in nature - i.e. something like "I'm happy you found what you were looking for. What do you like?" and the user is always new, and has a total of 2 posts listed in their profile.

Also, please - new members - don't be shy - post something in the Introductions section - then we will know you and know you are not a spammer. The spammers (almost) never post there first.
