    Spam Attack

    We've been spammed a lot recently by people who paste in messages copied from other forums and other web sites.

    When we catch these folks, we delete their posts and their accounts.

    This group has made themselves pretty easy to spot, because they keep using fake signatures.

    If you see a post like this, please click the report button.

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Why do they want to do that? Just because they can sell their signature later?

    I think they are paid spammers.

    Well, I rigorously report anything that seems to be spam on a regular basis.

    They have a tendency to do it to older posts that people won't notice it on, so it's a good idea for everyone to always check their subscribed threads for random updates by spammers, then report those posts! Let's work together to keep NB clean and tidy.

    That's where I come in place, I hardly read posts through the forum it is in. Only if I'm searching for something specific, but mostly I search for new posts through the 'Unread Posts' So that's how I spot those silly posts..

    And yes, we'll all work together to keep this a nice place
