    I agree with you Rod, spamm has gotten so bad, that I stopped alerting the mods. So glad that they decided to read THEIR forum and clean up the place.

    Cindy is at a show this weekend, and is working on it in her spare time after hours. She told me the other day they deleted over 100 spammers in one day, and are looking into more ways to prevent them. Rod is partially right, when spammers find an easy mark, they jump all over it. We have to be patient and let the Mods do their jobs. I am alerting Cindy to all I see.

    I don't know about vBulletin but when I owned a boxer dog forum, I used Invisionboard and there were mods that could be installed that would prevent the robot spammers from joining. I used one that required a 9 digit number to be put in and that eliminated 99% of the spammers. The only ones that got through were real people and I could delete & ban them pretty quickly.

    I'm with Ken. I click on the little "Exclamation Point" and report all the spam I find. And like Len, I'm posting "Spam reported." I don't know if this helps or not, but it may keep us from making multiple reports on the same spammer.

    Hey you guys. I was at a show and apologize for not being more on top of it but my time and internet access while there was very limited. I do really appreciate you alerting us to the spam. I am checking the Forums several times a day and removing the spam posts. I actually just removed about 60 or so of them. I'll address this issue with my team again this week. You guys are the best - thank you for your patience!!

    Cindy :)
