Yeah, got it and another one right below it. As for spam, it's always been an issue. I think this being an ad supported forum has a bit to do with it. It's the flip side of never being hounded for contributions. If you notice my sig, I took the liberty of announcing my displeasure with the spam in Russian as well as translated into English.

Many harmful sites/businesses use automatic spam-posting program so it is a never-ending battle.

As soon as I see one, it goes into "physically remove" mode.
