    Hats Off to Admin and Mods...
    ...for keeping this place civilized.
    I am in a different time zone and log on in what would be the wee small hours for most regular users. And I see 'Today's Posts' filling with spam upon spam upon spam.
    Jeez. I hate to think how much crap you guys have to delete.
    Anyway, thank you.
    'Nuff said.

    Why thanks, Colin! Yeah, there's a ton of clean up every day. Relentless. My favorite time is when one guy will put up 20 in a row, each in a different sub forum. Yeah, it happens - often.

    Thanks Colin, we do what we can. The filters are pretty good but there is still plenty that gets through. The obvious stuff I fire off to the SPAM place for Hell but try to warn and foster those who make naive mistakes.

    The tools in vBulletin make it pretty easy to quickly zap the spammers. It can actually be a little enjoyable, kind of like playing Galaga. Wave after wave of spammers, every day.

    Phil really deserves a lot of recognition for everything he does. And trust me, even the moderators probably don't know most of the work he puts into it.

    Thanks for your hard work to keep the house clean, guys.

    BTW, I remember there used to be a "report" button at the right bottom corner of each posts. But I couldn't find it anymore. I think it would be helpful for us to report the spammy posts whenever we see one that Admin/Mods might have missed.

    It's still around, just moved to the lower left, near the "Thanks" button.
