    Spammers are the lowest form of scum on the planet. I spend
    many hours a day, hundreds and hundreds of hours in my
    lifetime, removing their detritus from this and other
    chatboards I monitor. I craft filters to block their spam,
    but they change methods as quickly as one is blocked. Valid
    posts are often blocked because of this.

    If I could elimate one country from the planet - N1geria - 95%
    of this crap would disappear, and few would miss them. I
    apologize for the aggravation, but know you can't be as burnt
    about this as I am.

    If you can, when you spot spam click the "report this post"
    red link on the side, and I promptly remove new reports and
    block the latest spam patterns. Every little bit helps.
