    I thought maybe people who just want to spam forums, might actually leave this place alone, as its for a specific purpose, and provides no real substance or value for spammers to post rubbish links to their content, especially as the content here is very targeted to PTSD only. I could understand if it was someone trying to conger up some PTSD related links, but even that does no value, as this board uses a tagging system so search engines do not follow outbound links... all in the sake of detering spammers.

    Is there just no bounds to these twits?

    Oh yes, lets not forget the cialis or viagra! How many of those things can a person get a day. Seeing that stuff everyday is nearly enough to give a person PTSD... the trauma of email spam... oh my god!!! :)

    I hate that too. I have NO clue why I get emails for that stuff. If they LOOKED at my email address they'd see I'm a GIRL and have no use for that type of stuff.

    Let's not forget the Paypal scams as well. "Please press this link and update your PayPal." I don't even HAVE Paypal. :mad: It's quite annoying. If people are going to spam, at least make something that actually LOOKS plausible.

    Infuriating Anthony. Some people just don't care at all.
