Default SPAM and old threads

I will be deleting old threads that have accumulated a lot of SPAM since they were originally posted. These would mostly be irrelevant videos or links that have had no replies for a long time other than repeated SPAM posts.

I have found some threads with only the original post and then I've deleted dozens of SPAM posts on that thread. Some mornings I find upwards of 80+ SPAM posts in all four Forums..I remember one day deleting upwards of 300 SPAM posts.

SPAM is replying to SPAM in some instances when a SPAMmer has started a new thread.

Don't take it personally if you find a funny video or link to something you posted has been deleted.
If I find a link to a LIGHTFOOT related article that does not have the text of the article included in the thread and the link does not work I will delete it also.

thanks,
Char

i recently replied to a Robbiins one (dark text, seems familiar and could be spam) in case it was legit, but DELETE away if the radar's up ... and thanks for all that you do as usual!

yeah _ any threads that start with black text will be deleted...the spammers are pretty clever using parts of other posts in theirs too.
sneaky bastards.

This explains why a couple of my threads have been deleted. I thought you all had something against me. :O

If I ever accidentally post anything that doesn't need to be on the forums, just let me know so I can avoid doing it again in the future.
