Luckily those spamful posts were deleted very quickly, apparently. I only noticed it because the posts were reported to us moderators, when I checked they were already gone. And by the way, thanks to all members who report spam to us, it really helps a lot! :)

Yeah, you'd be surprised how many spammers and spambots get through and need to be deleted. Usually we snub them out quickly, but I've been a bit preoccupied with non-forum business recently and so haven't been as vigilant as I usually am.

By the way, if you spot any posts that look even remotely like spam, don't click. Firstly it is is a risk to you, and secondly it just encourages the spammers to to what they do. If spamming generates clicks they will keep at it.

Well, thanks to the moderators for all the work you have with that!
    That was quite annoying. Sometimes I don't know what to think of the human kind.

Sometimes they aren't human ;) Although the spambots are programmed by humans, so they are human by proxy, I suppose...  ;D

If you don't mind me asking, what are clicks?

Clicks are when you click links.

I reported something like this to the moderators on the DTF, it gets really annoying that these things continue to be posted. Thanks animaltoyforum, brontodocus and all other moderators on this forum for deleting these posts so quickly :).
