It looks like the ad bots are working hard today, I've seen 3 spam posts in the past hour. :lol:

Many times the posts on here aren't from actual people spamming - they're bots designed to spam the forums after a human creates an account for them.

The mods sure do a nice job.

It appears that most of them lurk around the forum only to strike, when spam is posted and of course when they receive credit for their work :)
