    What with these guys?

    I don't understand. Whats with these guys that then join post less than 10 times (never even mentioning they own an A-body), not really adding anything of value then disappear. No links trying to spam us. We have had 3 of those this week:

    mateojordan45
    david_banks1330
    knighttony13

    What is their motive? Besides cluttering up the forum and bring up old threads.

    On a related note we had a more typical spam attack:

    Obviously a spam bot from www.wbodystore.com. I cant believe any business would want their name associated with this kind of "advertising".

    I'd rather drive a cobbled together rustbucket Ford than a brand new Chrysler anyday.

        Sometimes they'll have the bot post "legitimate posts" up until a certain point, as a way to fly under moderator detection.

          Forum spammers are always trying something new. If you see anything that actually is spam, just report it and one of us will take care of it.

            Just a reminder folks, if you see a spam post (or anything questionable), please report it using the "Report Post" link. It's the small triangular icon under the user's name with the exclamation point in it.

                You gonna remove the users too? They have names consisting of random letters and numbers, like vifdfwsr22 and such.
