I'm so sorry everyone. I spent an hour tonight cleaning up everything and getting rid of all the spam so hopefully things will look normal again. I don't spend as much time on the internet these days after my bout with cancer last year, I'm still trying to recover and a serious illness has a way of changing ones priorities.

But I do want to keep the site spam free so please report the threads and I will delete them right away.

Thanks you two...I appreciate your thoughts!

But honestly, I really hate football season now...because that's when most of these spam threads get posted. In less than 24 hours 22 threads were posted, which I just removed and I banned 17 people. What is the point of posting this crap???

Did you even read that page? The page you posted pertains to copyright infringement which has nothing to do with what these spammers are doing. Nor do I care to spend countless hours of my time every week reporting their bad behavior which would likely go unpenalized anyway.

I have noticed that some other car sites do not allow new members to post links to anything including pictures of their cars and I now understand why they do that. The end result is most new members on those sites move on like I did so the policy has a negative effect on participating new membership.

Nevermind....

Yes, I read it. What they are doing is a DMCA violation by posting free links to copyrighted events.

Just trying to help.

Enjoy banning spammers.

I won't make that mistake again.

I DO NOT enjoy any of this but I can't fix the problem all by myself. They can't be reported until they actually post the links and by that time the deed is already done. It's my job to keep the site clean...NOT keep the internet free of DMCA violations. If you actually did read the page you would realize the reporting MUST be done by the owner of the copyrighted material which isn't me or this site so your suggestion was NO HELP AT ALL.

There's no real point in blaming me for this activity...I'm an unpaid volunteer here. Your time would be better spent complaining to the administrator about this stuff because I'm not even an official moderator...they have ALL left in case you haven't noticed. I ONLY have the ability to remove threads and band members...I don't even have access to IP addresses or the moderator forum so maybe you should try contacting someone else.
