    We seem to be getting hit by a lot of spammers lately. The auto submit software they use targets the breakers board as it automatically picks the forum with the most posts to post their crap on.

    No point in replying to them as the person who is responsible for the spam will never see your reply, it will be posted on several thousand message boards in one run of the software.

    Please just delete them as soon as you see them, no need to email me as I check through the memberlist daily (at the moment twice a day) and delete them all.

    Thanks!

    Steve,

    I delete them if no one has responded to them.

    If someone has responded should I just leave it (edited of course) or delete the whole thead including the responses?

    Some of the responses are quite funny and make entertaining reading to us regs, but when the subject title is clearly spam "Loans", "Sex Videos" etc I'd rather the whole thread be deleted with or without replies.

    It kind of gives the wrong impression to newbies who may be visiting for the first time but don't click on the threads to actually read them.
