I see and report a few every few nights I think when I'm here. It's always some cut and paste nonsense text and then links to a bunch of movies that you have to install a special video player to watch (I'm sure *THAT* isn't full of viruses, malware and trojans)

Seems like it comes in waves though. I think the mods are doing an OK job.

Viper: Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
Wolfman: Holy shit, it's Viper!
Goose: Viper's up here, great... oh shit...
Maverick: Great, he's probably saying, "Holy shit, it's Maverick and Goose."
Goose: Yeah, I'm sure he's saying that.

I know the mods zap it quick but it would be better to keep it from getting through in the first place.

Maybe require 10 posts before being able to start a thread?
can you get a screen shot of it, and post it here?

i deal with anything new i see in the AM.
but, thats only new THREADS, if there are spam posts i wont see them, or even know where to look.

I just neg rep them, report it and move on, I know they're never logging in again.

It makes me feel better lol. Same as i found out today if you shout 'Fuck off' while on hold to Att&T - it recognizes it as 'speak to an agent'.

If you were up at 3am PST There was one at 5:30, 3:30, and one at midnight. For some reason I don't get emails any more when people report spam. The emails I get are when someone chimes something "negative" into a sale thread and the OP reports it it seems.
