I'm getting fed up of users who are trying to be smart - they have links to websites in their posts that are hidden through the use of colour. You should know that I use "" to check whether your username/ip/email address is listed as a spammer. I have left a good half dozen posters alone this past few months because they appear to be genuine users, with some of their posts actually responding properly to threads.

However I have now decided to get tough - if you have "hidden links" in your posts you can expect that post to be deleted as soon as I see it, whether the content is genuine or not. Three strikes and you get a ban.

There are posts, such as the one directly above this post, that appear genuine but have the hidden link. I will be "Flag"ing those posts, which means ANY TIME the user posts I get a notification. If that user continues to post with hidden links I will "one click ban" them, which means all their posts get shredded and their account is banned.

Also, there have been a lot of posts such as "I agree!" or "Thank you for the good post!" - all these are being made by people on the StopForumSpam register and ALL of these will be deleted when I see them and the user banned.

Further - I have the ability to EDIT posts. I can remove your links. I do not like doing this but I will if need be.

So if you are one of those people I suggest you close your forum account and go away, because you are not going to get anywhere here.

Sam / Bifford.
