Here I was thinking that we had some very keen newbies with all these new posts! At least we have that handy dandy report button now...

You're a dark horse, chiggins.

I thought it was Polish for some reason. Whatever it was, it's gone now.

Interesting, I reckon it's something about the forum software. I sometimes visit a different forum that uses this software and they have 'Russian spammers' all the time too. They ended up setting a restriction where new posters couldn't post links until they'd made at least 5 or 10 (can't remember how many) posts, to stop spammers from putting in links.

Yankee, I think there are just a lot of Russian (or Polish) spammers. Possibly they target this software, but I don't think it's specially vulnerable.

Yeah, I thought it could have been Polish too. It certainly wasn't Russian!

I always wonder what they think. Does anyone really press those links?? Why would you, half the time they are in some foreign language.
