1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

So, what is the point of being a spammer?

    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".

    Yes! Yes I do know that. But in my defense that EDIT button was so not there last night.

    It really wasn't!

    Uh huh... sure! That's your story and you're sticking to it!

    There seems to be a dark side to Marie and I think we are only beginning to see it!

    The edit button often does not show up in my posts. I'd be inclined to believe Marie. But don't worry, that picture is really funny. I just hope the little guy doesn't turn brown too soon...
