I am not complaining about spam on the site, the mods get rid of it pretty quick (and thank you)...
But it all seems to be to do with kitchens! Whats with that?
I am a mod on another site and we get lots of spam, sneaker site and it is mostly sneaker or some sort of faked crap fashion the odd wedding dress thing, so a vague link there... but kitchen spam... not porn or dodgy crap, but kitchens? I really don't understand.

I'm an admin on another forum and most of of the spam attempts we endure are flogging computer gear.

man b - a man whoms not computer skilled in lols ,nor skilled in hundred site ranks ............yet ride daily ....build kitchens



the question now to WHOMS spamming ....

We try to get rid of it ASAP, but I'm afraid we can't be monitoring all the sections 24/7, nor can we read every single new post in existing threads to see if it's legit.

I used to be admin on an Android-related forum. You wouldn't believe how much spam we had from webshops that specialized in iPhone and iPad.
Oh, and for purses and make-up as well, but that might be because I'm a woman in the weekends. :lol:

Current round of spam on the evo forum is advertising hookers!
Quite amusing really.
