You guys wanna see a forum taken over by spammers? Head on down to the lodist forums where I (used to) moderate. I used to delete spam here and there when it started, but its gotten to the point now that the spam has actually killed the forum. The only new posts you will see there anymore is spam. The forum admin kinda abandoned it and never gave mods the means to ban people. man is that place a nightmare.

Gamefaqs is also taken over by spammers. Whenever I go to a retro system (atari, game gear, master system) with almost no toipics, I garruntee at least one of themis "I claim this board". At least Gamefaqs can ban members, but you can't get in trouble for being spammy.

If what happened to gamefaqs happens to us, I will leave and post only occasionally like I do with gamefaqs.

What's there to post if it's taken over by spammers?

:lol: Quick, post a thread in 42 warning us of this terrible danger. :roll:

These forums will not be taken over by spammers, we don't really have much activity here, and plenty of mods. And spammers don't pay attention to poor modder people. :lol:

I feel it neccessary to tell you that it has been 5 months since the last post. I wonder if the no bumping thing applies to stickies?

I noticed, but was not concerned because it was a sticky.

it seems quite stupid, to post in a dead topic (even if it is a sticky), if you have absolutely nothing to add :roll:
