Anyone care to shut down this latest spam attack?

Mods need to approve new members before the post in any section other than the "practice post" section if this is going to stop. This is only going to get worse.

Just banned and deleted this latest attack.

Mods don't get to decide new member policy, the owners do.

The key is reporting the posts... hit that hazard sign looking thing up in the top right of the posts. Put Spam as the reason. We all get e-mails and at least one of us can jump on and deal with it.

There are enough eagle eyed folks that we get a heads up pretty quick.

How about a question that has to be answered to become a member?
Q) What's the cheapest part of owning a Land Rover?
A) Buying it.

One touch clean and ban feature is real handy for Mods.
Delete threads and ban people in one keystroke.

Yeah unfortunately we don't have "Superban" like tools.

It's a manual process.

Maybe one day.....

It was pharma spam. Not for good stuff, like painkillers or ED meds, but for heart conditions and stomach acid. Totally bizarre.
