    Too many 14 year old boys with "ADD" and no friends.

    This thread is just begging for a spambot.

    The forum needs a few good mods, and the spam would be dealt with quickly and effectively!

    Holy hobos! There are half to a full dozen of these threads popping up everyday. The broken English makes it difficult for me to decipher, but it appears to be an offer to sell people credit card information for next to nothing. Plus Ipods, computers and the like, just for variety. I can't help but wonder if some idiot actually sent the spambot money.....
    How difficult is it for mods to delete a few threads, and remove some accounts. Can't IP addresses be banned?

    Just report it, it will be gone soon. Mark tried having people do captchas for each post but it did not slow down the spam so he dumped it.
