    You can thank Hammerhead for the bullshit. I find it funny and amusing at times degrading himself. After awhile it gets old.

    He keeps using a proxy server to keep spewing his shit. Every damn morning the same old crap.

    The Ask? section should also request a verified registered user before being able to start a thread.

    Most forums have that policy so this crap does not happen or eliminate most of the problem.

    Hello! I'm a newbie here and I would like to say thanks to the moderators for cleaning the boards.

    I haven't encountered spam here yet. :)

    I think james doesn't understand your answer in other words what changes have admin made apart from newbs not posting links,is that all or is there more behind the scenes stuff going on like filters etc,he may also not realize mods & admin have different levels of editing ability (in other words restrictions on what can & can't be done by mods)
