They're here all the time. We generally catch them before you guys see them.

We haven't thought about fixing the problem because we had assumed we'd be on other forum software by now. Unfortunately, the migration hasn't gone as far as we had wished. Modding this forum isn't a trivial task anymore because it has been hacked to hell and back.

They're called spambots. Basically, companies receive royalty money if they help advertise for other sites. Webowners pay these companies money, who run scripts to create spambots. These spambots automatically sign onto forums - any forum to advertise. They can't repond back. On Ultimate-Guitar.com we have millions coming from Russia and Turkey which wholesales cell phones, musical instruments etc. There must be something on this forum which fuels the advertising of viagra  :lol:

There is report post to moderator/admin button on all posts.. I think clicking on that is enough to let the board admins know somethings up and remove the poster and the post.
