They want people to pay for a premium membership but there is absolutely no one doing anything about these spammers. Why would I pay someone to do nothing? It is disappointing because I really like this site.

HTMNKYLVE and taboo, you guys got it nailed, some folks like and would rather read all the spammers posts than a members post. So, I guess some of the folks love the way it goes here And so it goes, folks, ride safe. H man , you make a very good point, the legit sponsers pay to help support the site too, the lovely spammers put their trash up on the site for free, and upset some of us

Ride Safe, Live Long

I have just added in a new restriction that anyone with less than 3 posts cannot post anywhere in the forums except in the NEW INTRODUCTION area. This will help us keep the spam to one area and get rid of it much quicker.

Check out some of our new motorcycle forums:
Vulcan Forum | Goldwing Forum | RC51 Forum | FZ6 Forum | Victory Forum
| Buell Forum | KTM Forum | Aprilia Forum | Star Motorcycle Forum |
Kawasaki Forum |
If you are interested, we are looking for moderators and admins to help grow
these sites.

That is a good start, but how about identifying the spam accounts and blocking them or deleting their accounts as soon as they are identified. There is at least 4 spammers hitting us right now on a regular basis. There has to be a way to kick them off.

OK, so I just went on a spam hunt and found that we seem to be infested. I reported at least 7 and there are a couple more that I couldn't find but I know they are out there. Hopefully these accounts will be terminated quickly and the reports did not fall on deaf ears because I would like to get back to talking about motorcycles instead of complaining about spam.
