    I think everyone of you has already noticed that from time to time there are odd threads, offering

    - nude pics
    - porn
    - women
    - movies
    - software
    - illegal drugs
    - pharmaceuticals
    - enlargement for "privy areas" :D
    - other stuff...

    Please just ignore them, don't even PM them or click on their links! I'll delete those threads immediately. Why is this so important: those SpamBots are not human. They just roam around the net, look for discussion forums, guestbooks etc and spam them. If you click a link, poing, the board is registered. To speak in clear language: "they" now know that the board is existing and people on the board are interested in those ads. So please do the board a favor and just ignore that pest.

    king regards,

    You're right, nimd4.

    Most of these things happen because people don't know crap or just switch off common sense when they're on their computer.

    It's not that bad here, it's just annoying, look nto my documentation thread. Nearly 95% or even more of it is spam-deleted-documentation ;)
