Just noticed that 8 of the eleven current forum posts (as of 0735, EDT) are spam.

Some sort of record, maybe!!??

Sorry if I sound stupid but where do you look at, CB? :sorry: New posts? Do you know they are spam because you read the text or is there a more sophisticated way for skilled minds? :sorry::sorry:

I only mentioned it because I once upon a time (in my nefarious past) made use of software that would automatically spoof an ad into just about any forum. It could even defeat the "Prove you aren't a robot" gate keepers :woot:.

<EDIT> I should note that I no longer have that software :D.
