So its that time of year again; when the spammers start hitting hard.
There have been very many spam posts in moderation lately but the reason I post this is due to one in particular.
This user in question posted multiple spam posts, all different, random and arbitrary and then had the cheek to post a question asking how to contact Admin in order that his spam could be brought forth from moderation. He posted a screener of his rubbish question and carelessly blotted out the words of his spam post in Paint in the hope that we would be fooled.
Keep your eyes peeled for Arbitrary Posts; These Spammers will do anything to get a post on the site. Once its there it will lay dormant and then they can edit it to inject their crap when noone is looking.
These posts are sometimes disguised as actual content! Sometimes you can tell its generated but lately it is a MANNED OPERATION. They are getting wise.
Be on guard, fellow mods!
Here's an example of what to expect. This just came through attempting to post on this page.
Everything after the spam-link is actually taken from the question itself. You wouldnt notice unless you checked.
Deleting a post deletes all the posts that are marked as replies following it :P
