    When they find a cool/popular place which many people come to, they advertise for anything to get attention, or they're kids that think spamming is fun/funny, cool . That's why they do it.

    Trust me there a Forums out there Flooded with spams, I'm talking more than 50 pages of topics with only spam. Guess the Mods didn't pick the right time to take a vocation.:D

    Yes, but I was her first "friend". And as we all know, friends may come and go over time, but the first one will always be special!

    Col has been kicking butt banning spammers. I logged in Sunday morning my time and literally 1/3 of the front page was full of "This thread has been deleted by col.bris. Reason: Spam and/or Unwanted Content".
