Why must it always be trolls? Can't we have some elves, fairies or pixies for a change?
Seriously, it's probably just a pityable, lone guy in a godforsaken country with no girlfriend, work or hobby, pestering people for a few miserable bucks to go by. As long as we don't have those awful x-rated links back, best just ignore the fellow.
Actually a person not a robot... fulfilling a quota...
The only way to stop this kind of Spam is with a membership that vets new members, some of the forums I'm on actually do this, but wth only a few oddballs its more trouble then its worth as its easy to delete a few spam posts, strelets needs a moderator whoose on the ball...
It just needs a better barrier preventing the spam posts. The "picture puzzles" dont always appear when starting a new subject or post, so they are not very effective. To be fair it isnt as much spam as before. As long as nothing X-rated pops up again, that was a big no-no.
A moderator is not needed here. Its a very good, well mannered forum. Even when we may not all agree with something. Generally its treated like an adult discussion with sensible debate and humour.
I very much doubt most people who post here would want this site turning into Hats forum, where even the tiniest little hint of dissent is removed.
