For whatever reason, HBA has been seeing a much-heavier-than-normal number of spammers lately. The moderators are pulling upwards of ten posts a day at times, and those are just the very few that actually get through to the boards. We're banning spammer accounts as quickly as possible.
The best way to make these guys go elsewhere is for their posts to disappear very quickly. They make their living on clicks through the spam link. Let's deny them that.
Because we're spread out around the globe, at least one of the HBA moderators is online almost all the time - but we can't be in every thread and every section. We need your help. Please keep your eyes open for any spam posts. If you see one, please report it immediately to the HBA moderators. You do that by clicking on the little black triangle near the lower-left corner of each post. The moderators will all get an e-mail notice of the report, and we'll jump on it as quickly as we can. Please don't click through the link in the spam post - if you do, you've just put some money in the pocket of the spammer.
If you folks can help us out in beating back this new wave of spam, we'd really appreciate it, and the boards will be better for all of us as a result.
