    Its been annoying me now, but daily 5-10 users register on my forums and post an advertisement topic

    usually something weird like, example;

    <spam removed>


    sometimes in foreign language, sometimes not

    Education? Maybe they don't know that what they are doing is wrong, or frowned-upon.

    (Did you notice that you have just done here precisely what it is you are complaining about? Are those the spam links posted? Why advertise for them here?)

        Did you know that you were able to edit posts?

        You could click the Edit Post button, delete the spam from your post, then save it.

        That way, the people who spammed you don't get free advertising from you on this site.

        (Could be deleted by the time I submit this, I did Report your post just before.)

          They are most probably spambots.
          Don't let them register with the help of Questions and Answers and your problem will be solved.


          vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

            He's got multiple threads open, he tried Q&A but probably just used the default suggestion.
