Another new spammer -- I couldn't figure out how a thread on heat loss in the winter would be revived in THIS ugly head, until I saw who revived it!

99% of spam posts are done by bots or spam generation programs designed for specific BBS systems. There is no "meridth", just a randomly generated registered user. The programs hits hundred if not thousands of forums like this with the same info. It's a cat and mouse game between the spammers and the admins...

And "sherinmary4" got this one: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17502

It's most definitely not spam, but rather a question... I don't want to offend anyone, but was it really necessary to post the info on the Ghost stories contest in so many individual threads? I spent almost half an hour opening bumped-up threads only to find the exact same message over and over.
