Isn't there something you can do to stop these spam posts, even if it's requiring registering before posting?

I Think you're right. I'm now cleaning this sh!t out several times a week. I guess I'm not the only one getting annoyed by it.


Elsewhere you asked if anyone buys the crap these bloodsuckers peddle. The sad answer is yes. About a year back I was at a computer security forum where the speaker stated that about 7% of Internet users had responded to spam at least once. I suggested that since they fight prostitution (a noble profession compared to spamming) by arresting customers, they should do the same with spam. The other attendees thought I was joking, but I think it's worth a try.

Buy from a spammer, go to jail!
