    I am taking a stand against these flood of spam bots and ads. Any users that see these posts with completely irrelevant postings and links to random websites, please let one of the moderators or admins know. I thank those that have been alerting me to these, and I am staying on top of them the best I can! :) Your help in these matters is much appreciated.

    Well said, what do people actually get of sending link after link, and then sending the same really stupid message over and over again its just irritating rather than anything else

    Most advertising links either have viruses or they get money for the links. Advertising is a huge monetary gain online. Most of these you are familiar with. Side bar ads on websites, but sometimes they are a "click to acquire wealth" type of advertising. They will get a percentage of money for the amount of people that actually visit the website,

    That's true, I personally don't think the money is good enough to sit and do it non stop, but whatever floats their boat.

    They are not typically real people posting links, they use macro programs that do it for them

    True, the only real way to stop this is by using the security letters which will end up annoying ,members like us.

    Even that isn't fool proof all the time.

    true, but everything in technology can be bypassed if someone is determined enough to do it.

    For every new firewall and virus database, there is a new hacker or a new virus to challenge it.

    ROFL, there are several Live Virus holding web sites where you can D/L live virii for Software Testing. Developers use them to test the vulnerability of apps/programs etc.
