It will deffinatly make the spam less spamy now that they come with some real nice pictures
Or they could be limited to having to make X number of posts before selling anything.

ye I think that is the best idea, if you see more of the person, you will possibly be able to trust them more.

Not sure about the links. I see how that is just as bad (if not worse since some of them have viruses) but most of the new people here that actually do have a lagit reason for being here need to post links (looking at a new computer of what ever). Having some one else run through those as well would be hard and very time consuming.

they could just use the text, and if it is a legit post, it could be copied and pasted into the URL bar, i was just thinking that weve had alot of spam threads recencly containing links with viruses etc.. and that would stop things like that occuring as regularly, mabye make it 50 posts for each..

That would work. Didn't think about just text. I was thinking it would just be like automatically deleted or something.

Whats wrong with graphic spam? The only bad spam is spam without a picture. Unless of course that picture is less than desirable.

Well this came a day after a member posted two threads of spam with pornographic pictures of Britney Spears. I think we want to put an end to these spam posts. And if you don't know better with some of these posts, I don't know what to tell you.
