Done that and the spammers don't get on my site that I look at everyday to be sure all is good.

Still trying to figure out why you continue to visit this site, Lee, if you hate it and its moderator so much.

Please share.

The moderator should be on at least 1 time per day to address these spam issues and any and all others as they arise.

Sorry-

had a tough work week and had the weekend to get the house ready to be plastered today. Power was out most of the time so I didn't have time to login. I've deleted the spam, and banned the user. I'm leaving the thread for those of you interested to discuss this further. Feel free to PM me if you want an iPad...

It is obvious that Lee has plenty of time on his hands to moderate or whatever. He has taken to trolling the photo galleries - left a sarcastic message on mine that the brown trout pic in my "Rapid River" album was in fact a brown trout (duh!) and therefore he "doughted" (sic) that it came from the Rapid ... nevermind that this would have been clear if he had read the report associated with this album (which also features pics from the same trip of the Sunday and Peabody Rivers).

Lee - get a life please?

Oh no! My poor eyes! I clicked on this thread hoping to see some fish porn, and oh dear! Some spam! How could a thread called: FOR SALE: Apple iPad 3, Apple iMac 27", Apple Macbook pro 17" not be a fishing report!?!?! I've suffered so! I'll never be the same again! How could this atrocity stand?!?! It was up for literally DAYS!!!!!

Seriously, you want a guy like Sean moderating this site. Forums run by self appointed internet egomaniacs suck, and most of them fail in very short order. Many have tried and failed. Some have failed just don't know it yet (trolls take note).
Be thankful we have a fairly active forum in a day and age when forums are dying out that's mostly positive and helpful.

There's an old proverb, I think it might be from the Bible, but I could be wrong:

"Whaddya want fer nuthin, yer money back?"

This forum is totally free. It has very few ads compared to other forums. It isn't run by some guy showing off the fact that he's God's gift to fishing, or promoting a fly shop or guide service. Whether or not you realize it, that's an incredibly rare thing these days.

How great this forum will or will not be is completely up to us, the users.
