    Tell him that Dr. Carlos Santana referred you to his black magic practice

    Bump a couple of proper posts to move it off the front page.

    One after another by lovemontra and others still there taking up whole pages, with repeated threads, one would expect moderators to ban these and take them off.......

    I'm with ya, bro. I posted a question on one of the threads, asking if a moderator had noticed the posts. Dealing with black magic and such, they are.

    Clearly, the mods are aware of it as they've banned a lot of the identities and deleted a lot of the spam, but the person/people/spambot keeps on creating new identities and posting more spam.

    Please don't quote spam/reply to spam, as it serves no purpose - the spammer isn't going to be sitting there reading your responses to their spam and thinking, "Oh, no - I knew that I shouldn't have posted that there!"

    If you feel like you've got to take some action, you can report the decision to the moderation team by opening the post and then clicking on the red flag at the bottom of the post. I'd assume that the current "black magic" spam posts have already been reported.

    Can the joining requirement not be changed to require a 'code' to be entered as is now common as well as new members being moderated for their first 20 posts - the latter would be a good idea to reduce the number of silly and repetitive first threads (ie what suit do I want/does this fit etc) that are so often created anyway.
