I know I'm nit picking but the bulk spammers that go through and post in every category are getting a little annoying is there any thing that can be done to keep them from clogging up the site? ???

Good advice comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad advice

I just removed more.  We will continue doing our best getting them off as soon as we see them.

I'll see if I can't tighten it up a bit more, but it's pretty tight now. THE Only way to truly remove the spam is to go to an "Admin Must Approve" type sign up. Which we've done before and people complained because they had to wait until their account was approved and could post.

I need everyone's help.  Someone is locking up the topics incorrectly which causes them to stay visible and in the forum where people can still click into them.  Please use the tab on the bottom left side that says "Remove Topic".  This will clear it out completely.  Thanks!
