    Some dude from China spammed all my forum members, trying to sell products that are related to my forum's topic.

    He sent me the spam, too. I sent him a note explaining why he's getting booted from my forum. I locked the spammer's ID and changed the password.

    It wouldn't be so bad, except that my traffic is DEAD.

    I have a physical address (in the spam). What's a plane ticket to Beijing cost these days?

    Hell just call them up and order some Chinese food home delivery. Then stiff them on the tip.

    I feel like a farmer who's just endured a natural disaster and didn't have insurance.

    I did get one post today inquiring about a product. Hooray for newbies!
