The same thing happened on the "Where to buy wood" thread. The OP made a bogus post with a link to a non on topic web site. The moderator deleted the link but left the post since it was "on topic". Well guess what, the OP edited his original post and re-added the bogus link. The thread should be deleted and the poster deleted also.

Just my opinion of course.

Cute or lazy? Can't believe they started plagiarizing older posts from the forum. Of course, maybe you guys have seen all of this before, but it is new to me...


No, all of this spam is fairly new. Just in the last year or so. IMO it is the result of the ever increasing tracking of the Googles of the internet and their ilk. Get your web site anywhere on the internet and it comes up higher on searches.

Thankfully we have moderators that are doing a great job of deleting the junk. I get email notifications of new posts. They are sent as soon as a post occurs. When I get up in the morning and check my email I see posts that appear to be spam. When I log on to the forum those posts are not there because the moderators are doing their job.

The moderators efforts are very much appreciated.

I agree 100%...just surprised by how crafty the spammers are sometimes.
