    Hey VUers!

    Ever see the gibberish posts throughout the day, and especially, late at night? We do our best to remove these as soon as we see them, but when you happen to run across those, please use the REPORT button. DON'T reply to those, even as silly and funny as they may be. When we catch those, they go bye bye.

    See those idiotic spam posts a lot. Think I reported once or twice but didn't want to be seen as a report spammer by reporting too much too often to trigger a spam report spam alarm for reporting spam. I'm hungry now. Maybe fried spam and eggs.

    LOL. No, when you see those and report them, that's not report abuse. Use that button!!

    No more doing the nekkid mambo through the spam threads late at night. I know they're silly and fun, sometimes, but members go into the Twilight Zone.

    It's the word "sometimes" that makes me curious. Apparently I've dodged a bullet at least three times after replying in those threads.

    Yeah, we haven't figured that out, yet. I know I've seen additional posts in some of those threads and it's not supposed to affect anyone, usually, it doesn't. We're taking further cautions to prevent it, but you're still safer to report the spam.

    I prefer to take screen shots and post so everyone can laugh together.

    My favorites are posts like.. "necro" or announcing that you have replied to an older thread. Because everyone KNOWS nothing new has come along in the past 6 months and finding a dozen threads on the same topic is much better than scrolling to the last posts in one thread. The way I see it, the forum owner / administrator can set the forum to close threads automatically, server side, if they want them closed after a set amount of time. That is something I have never done in my forums. I always figured, maybe new people have something to say as well.

    Just reported this one. Must be Cham:
    "A trio of contouring algae helps drain and flush away fats to maintain your epidermis extra taut while oils make your dermis believe soft and supple"
    got a chuckle out of it at least.....
