    reporting spam messages

    PLEASE DO NOT copy any of the spam message into a post for reporting. If the process of reporting carries over the offensive content, please edit that out of your report. Having any portion of that content on the site is as bad as having the original post.
    For safety, I will delete all reported posts that contain the offensive content.

    Thanks for reporting spam posts. All bad guys are dealt with severely.

    There is a flaw in the current vBulletin software.

    I DO get all reported posts. However, the reported post gets sent to me, including the content of those posts, which could contain dangerous content. The hackers who attack from time to time seem to know of this flaw, and construct the posts so that they inflict as much damage as possible.

    So, when reporting spam type posts, please do NOT use the forum's link for reporting posts. Rather, spend a few minutes, and send me a PM with a link only to the spam message. That way, I can deal with it without having to worry about the contents of the posting.

    Thanks to all of you who support this forum.

    And, death to the spammers.

    BTW, most are from Russia, but we get a lot from Korea also.
