    I must say something about all the spammers here ,, it is getting outta hand ,, and the bad part is ,, i post a "simple " reply to a user on here about rv parts and i go under the gun ,, and it gets deleted ,, but all the others go on and on ,, i guess this rv forum is now for the spammers ,, i may be wrong ,, but i thought all this was fixed ,, oh well ,, i will shut up now ,, before i get deleted ,, or really mad ,, it is no fun trying to answer a honest question from an rver that is looking for "hopefully" good advice ,, then these spammers step in with thier adds and ruin it for everyone

    I agree Rod. It seems we get alot more spammers with this new forum format than we did with the old one. But I guess this is supposed to be the "industry standard" format, so any hacker/spammer would know how to bomb us with their crap. The only good thing I've found so far is the little ! in a triangle that let's me alert Cindy and the gang of any spammer that posts. Oh well........

    I don't usually weigh in on stuff like this, however I totally agree with the two above posters whom I have a great deal of respect for. I for one don't like some of the drivel some of these folks post and do wish something would or could be done to vote them off the island here.

    TNARVS - your replies are getting deleted? I didn't know that. Are your replies after the spammer post in a thread?

    When I delete a spammer, I'm only deleting their post in the thread. I will keep my eye on it.

    AkJimny - I really do appreciate your help in reporting spam posts. I caught two more this morning and deleted them.

    I can tell you before we switched to this forum, I was spending probably 6-7 hours or more removing spam posts and those users from the system. Now we might spend an hour a week.

    Remember, any of you can report a post to us as spam by using the little triangle with an exclamation mark in it at the bottom of each post.

    Thank you!! :)
