    All forums have a constant fight against SPAM posts, GT-Rider is no exception...

    Admin try to get in there and delete them as soon as possible...

    Unfortunately I am in a different timezone to Thailand, so I try to get to them before any of you b#^tards wake up :lol: ...

    Most of them are posted by programs (bots) not people, so posting abuse back doesn't help... The original poster doesn't come back to check if there are replies... I usually search by unanswered posts, so posting back means it can be a bit harder to find them...

    If you are legitimately trying to sell an iPhone, maybe write something in the title so I don't delete it while I am wielding the big stick...

    Cheers,
    Daewoo

    The spammers get right up my nose too mate. I / we try to delete them as soon as possible & normally they are not around for more than a few hours.
    All of them take the time to register & they only seem to pop up on the weekends - someone is picking up pocket money for spamming?
    Have a nice weekend now. The rugby is on in a few hours isn't it :)
