Lol - that is what they are for?

When I saw these good looking discussion Posts I thought, wow, he has a little spelling problem but he could start a good discussion. I was disapointed

redsomething, yeh probably the same guy.


**EDIT**

Can we PLEASE have stricter rules on continuous spammers, if they've only come to the forum to do that, what use are they? BAN IMMEDIATELY, in my opinion obviously :P

I think the biggest problem is the mods don't have the power (as far as I know) to outright ban people, although they can suggest this to David.
everybody has a life outside of internet forums, so expecting threads to be locked down straight away is a little un-realistic.

perhaps the easiest option would be to take note of the spamming addresses and add them to the language filter, thus making the spammers look more like the computer t**ts they are. when their link is replaced by a link to something else.
(perhaps shop.apple.com would be a good redirect for the freeipod links)
