    Default I hate spammers: Beware

    I really hate spammers. If you are a spammer contemplating joining out Forum, be advised I WILL BAN YOU!

    I have banned literally hundreds of spammers already and I will find you and ban you. You might as well not waste your time or mine because I HATE YOU! If I even think you are a spammer, I will ban you immediately. If your IP Address is listed on any of the Spam Sites, I will ban you. I check ALL new members against these sites.

    If you link to ANY advertising site, or list your home page as an advertising site, or post nonsense then:

    I WILL BAN YOU!

    I am not called the Terminator for nothing!

    And I'll get you if Ted doesn't!

    I BAN 40 to 60 spammers each day, sometimes more. You can't run, sometimes can hide, but I'll find you at some point.

    I also report spammers through the proper channels, which makes it even harder to join/spam on other forums.

    So do your self a HUGE favor & go elsewhere. Spammers are NOT welcome on this Forum.

    You may think it's funny now, but spamming is going to end on this site. I don't care how old the posts are, what rat hole I have to hunt to find them in, they will be found.

    And sooner, rather than later, spammers will NOT even be allowed to log onto the Forum. With the huge database of banned members that we have, that should cover most of you. That green banner is correct, it means never.

    Spammers are total crap & a drain on our resources, as well as our society. Can't you find something constructive, as in working a job, to occupy yourselves? Or do you consider yourself too good to work for a living?

    I spend on average, 3 to 4 hours per day banning your type from here almost every day. I am determined that we are going to have a decent site for those who wishes to learn Windows 8.

    And I will go to any extreme necessary to do the job, even reporting to ISP's if I have to. I have screenshots of several of you logged on at the same time, using different usernames, & a report on all stating that you're spammers. That's all that's needed, is the report, it doesn't have to happen here. It was part of the agreement when you joined. It can be obtained from one of several agencies.

    In closing, whenever I confirm one of you as a spammer, then I report you, this in turn gets reported to several data gathering services. Which in the future, for a long time, won't go away. Especially for those who requires approval before signing on. It won't happen, & some financial & government institutions are considering spammers a risk to deal with also, as these types are more likely to commit fraud, than a non-spammer would.

    So the more you spam, the deeper the hole you dig for yourself.

    But then tell me what to do if your post numbers is 0 and you are banned for spaming? Is it a little paranoid?

    There are many ways to check if a member is a spammer. We are proactive in ridding ourselves of these spammers before they actually post spam. That will continue until we rid ourselves of all these vermin.

    We have thousands of these spammers joining our ranks. If we were not proactive this site would be over run by spammers literally within days.

    If you were banned, then how are you posting here now?

    I suppose it is possible that we occasionally make mistakes, but we do rectify those few that are made. We have hundreds of new members every day of the week and over 95% are known spammers. We are trying to keep this forum free of spammers. It is very difficult, but we are going to continue to do as we think is necessary to allow our members freedom without having to be deluged with spam.
