    Can't bump a sticky, no matter how hard you try. And yes, now I know not to feed the spammers. Or feed the bears? Poke the trolls? Whatever they call it nowadays.

    I meant the New Posts or Recent Activity timelines. It does bump into those areas.

    Very good point. "New Posts" is nearly the only way I view the forum.

    Of course... Artemis and I don't need to see these warning threads. :p

    Can't speak for Firebird though. :rolleyes:

    Back when I was seriously into Joomla-templates, I had a forum at my site... and damn near everyday, I'd get there to find total shit about male enhancement, weight loss, and every other kind of total bullshit you can imagine. I finally just got rid of the forum, since I couldn't find any way of keeping the spammers out of it. So reporting spam here gives me a real glow. :) :) :)

    I am new here and am really glad this is still open. I learned a lot from this thread. Not all of what I learned is good but it was significant. Thank you mods for trying to keep this clean!
