    Isn't there some way we could verify newbies posts? These spammers who post "real" posts with the links at the bottom are a pain in the ass. I keep thinking its some new guy until I read the post and its a bunch of broken Engrish and half sentences. Shit, this one was actually well written: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...8&postcount=27 Maybe institute a captcha for the first 10 - 20 posts?

    don't listen to him. Harry Rosen is balls unless you're going for suits and Holt's is good but not as good as the stores in the states. We just started getting Thom Browne, and such a small selection at that. We have, to my knowledge, no Dior stockists as of 3 or 4 seasons ago. I wish ya'll would expand in the great north.

    its great for grown up clothes though

    wow. that is incredible. i know it's not like the bot is "coming up" with this stuff, it's just drawing from a database, but why didn't people program bots like that before? i am used to bots talking about "china dick xxx israel palestine conflict prons"

    It's actually copied from here
    http://www.classicrockersnetwork.com...rolling-stones

    And I'm not sure a captcha would work. I wouldn't be surprised if some or even the majority of these spam posts lately were written by actual people. For $0.50 an hour or whatever wages are in China etc, it's cheaper and more effective than developing some complex algorithm to do a poorer job.

    Maybe not on the first few posts. But I seriously doubt that they'd keep it up continuously for an extended period of time.

    a few serious requests. AAAC has a feature in the B&S where one can close one's own thread off... is it possible to add that feature? I use the "my posts" button all the time to follow up on threads I've commented in. Is there a way to add another button that will show me any post where I've been quoted? I think that would be really useful.

    Seach "Master-Classter" and filter by posts, not threads.

    The forum has been running very slow for me the past two weeks. This seems to be a chronic problem here that I don't encounter anywhere else.

    I think two things need to be done:

    1. Move to a faster host. Clearly they are not getting the job done.

    2. Upgrade the vBulletin software. 3.6.4 is very out of date by now and with the volume of pics here I think that is an issue. Some forums allow you to do a setting where pics cannot be requoted. That might work well here.

    Things have been very funky slow lately. I don't run into this on any other site either.
