    Spam is the name given to people the sign up (probably an automated thing) to forums with the sole purpose to advertise their own thing (viagra, on-line betting, other forums etc)

    You get alsorts of crap on the forums, fortunately we can normally pick it up quite quick, back home UR gets more as it is a bigger site, but they also get stopped quickly.

    I thought I would highly light this feature that everyone has forgotten about.

    Instead of bickering, please report posts you find offensive or dont agree with and let us deal with the issue.
