Why are there now so many "icky" topics being posted by yucky users in the offtopic forum?

Probably the same reason why my already spam-filtered e-mail inbox has seen a 20-times increase in spam recently...

It makes me wonder... who are these people, do they have a consciece, and why don't they find something more productive and/or fun to do?

not to mention who actually answers this spam, making a purchase (there have to be people for it to continue like it does, one must figure)...

At any rate, it has gotten especially bad lately.

For the short term, all new registrations have to be activated by me, so the posts should stop.

Pretty soon, I'll get something in place on the registration form to hopefully confuse the bots that sign up and post.

I know, those have been really annoying. That's a good idea Vincent. Hopefully it works and stops the bots.
