      It looks like it has become an online pharmacy or something?! I would report the individual posts, but there are so many I thought it would be easier to note it here.

      Heya Gar,

      There’s really no regular visiting mods any longer and those posts are actually made by scripts(or programs) that can post an incredible amount of posts in very little time. I’ve also stopped reporting them due to the sheer volume and lack of response. I see about 30-40 on the first page of search results for unanswered posts, some dating back to the beginning of August.

      There’s hope, however! Jeff said they’re migrating to another forum system. If they’ve chosen VBulletin as their go-to forum system, it includes a bit better method of catching these types of posts if set up correctly. Regardless of the system they’ve decided on, there’s some very easily implemented checks for this type of thing that can be integrated into any forum system with little work. I utilize Akismet for any commenters/posterts that aren’t yet trusted (30 days and 25 posts). It’s a great service that has a fantastic history of catching spam with little false flags.

      My fingers are crossed 😀

      I’m really confused though, I can’t decide if I want to buy a fake license first or viagra without a prescription? Man… those tough decisions in life. 😕

      Ok guys, forums are back in business! It’s a new system with additional built-in spam protection plus we’ve simplified the # of forums so it’s not such a hassle to police everything.

      The irony of this post is just fantastic! 😂😂
