Yes, I can be wrong and have been before. However, this poster passed my own spam test threshold and the problem does seem to be increasing. If I'm wrong, well I'm sorry. I don't think I am. I hate to see people get sucked into some spam target. No, I don't care to PM him, but you can. The Moderator or Admin can slap me if they want to. I don't take offence easily. There are others that I'm confident are spammers but there's still a flicker of doubt. And a probable brand new one too. You can usually tell when a new spammer is warming up and trying to establish a little cred before the official spamming starts. No I'm not a moderator and it's probably not my business.
I agree with ALL that you posted.
I was unaware that you have a more sophisticated screening process. Good on you and thanks.
I wonder if we (as a community) can set up a protocol for notifying Paul (site owner) and Larry10265 (moderator) to efficiently police spammers without falsely identifying accidental (perhaps overenthusiastic) supporters of products or methodologies that helped them?
