    This is a forum about WW2 aircraft. We don't want to see postings about cell phones, playstation or any other junk you're selling. Be advised if you decide to post here one of the admins will delete your posting and permanently ban you. Do us and yourself a favor and post your spam elsewhere!

    Unhappy Hollidays!

    I will add that your e-mail addresses will be reported to your ISPs. Yahoo and Hotmail do indeed take action against spam of any kind, e-mail or message board.

    this is usually done by bots that dpn't care of banning.
    kamikaze tactics is enough for delivering advertisement once and die then.
    so this topic is adressed to those who cannot read - bots.

    i've never considdered it a massive problem on the site, but that's probably because the mods do a good job of removing it quick sharpish!

    We don't want spammers coming on here selling stuff and posting 50 of the same add, it's that simple. What do you intend to post?

    Not necessarily. There have been a few that have included e-mail addresses for their "business" that are on yahoo or hotmail. I know that both of those will terminate accounts for spam when reported. Seem silly to create a bot to advertise your business with an e-mail address that is going to be terminated...

    I know for a fact that several of the spammers here have not been bots, and have gotten pissy when their posts were deleted. Oh boo-effing-hoo.

    Well put Eric!

    I'd say 95% of the spam we have intercepted so far had been posted by an individual, not a Bot. A few of the ones I caught were banned right in the middle of spamming several threads and after being banned they were sent an e mail so obscene and vile that their retinas probably melted when they read what I sent to them.

    Bottom line Spammers of any type are not welcomed here​
