    I've been noticing all these threads (which eventually end up being moved to the wasteland) advertising SPAM -dot- COM


    WTF?

    Is there some type of filter that we can use to that they can't be posted in the first place? Kinda like a profanity filter (heck, why not add it to the profanity filter?)


    What is that site about anyways? I don't want to make it seem like the ads are working, so I've never visited it [kinda like what I do with my spam email]


    Just my feedback :eek:

    Those devious mods edit out the URLs and change them to "spam" when they banish the threads. Is that what's messing with your head?

    I'm guessing that the Mods just edit out the URL as soon as they see it, and wasteland it.

    I don't think there's any filters here. None that I've ever noticed anyway.

    If there is a problem with people posting the same sites with referal numbers -- like the free ipod dot com losers.

    It does get added to the profanity filter, everyone gets tired of them real quick.

    None of the freecrap.com is allowed, the commercial advertising spam just gets tossed real quick.

    Report it using the [​IMG] and it will be taken care of.

    The mod edits make sure they don't get any advertising/benefit at all.
