For your awareness, since the new Forum started up, SPAMMERS have been trying to get on our forum. Every day there are some that register and then leave spam links in their profile signatures or in the visitor message at their profiles.

The spam is everything from shoes, suntan crap, nonstick cooking crap, pills, etc. Some spam is really disgusting.

WE CHECK THE FORUM ON A REGULAR BASIS AND BAN SPAMMERS AS SOON AS WE NOTICE THEM.

At the Welcome to our newest member place, if you click on a newest member name and go to their profile, if you see only two tabs and one says Infractions, this tells you they are a SPAMMER that has been banned and their SPAM post has been removed.

The Community - Member List gives the Usernames of members who have made at least 3 good (non-spam) posts. This helps keep SPAMMERS off this forum.

If you notice a SPAMMER before we do, please report it. We will remove them.
Don't click on their link. If you do, it is at your own risk.

Thanks!

Gary W

NOTE: Most spam is from spambots which are automated computer programs designed to assist in the sending of spam. The site owner (Administrator) has made some changes that are proving to be successful in blocking spambots.
.........In addition, all new registrations go through a moderation process where known spammers are blocked.
.........Sneaky spammers sometimes register as a normal non-spammer person and after they are approved as a member they sneak back and modify their profile to include spam links. We are aware when they do this. If they get as far as posting spam, we notice that pretty fast and the post is deleted and the spammer is banned forever.
.........Thanks to "sparky" for proving to be a SPAM-SLAYER 1st CLASS.Now 2014 still more spammers but they don't last long They are banned forever
