    Default Spammers.......

    I can't figure out what spammers get out of it. Someone (Arjumand) revived a thread of mine from two years ago that doesn't even have a photo attached any longer: "Gryfalcon: the largest type." It's obvious that another person's comment from a different thread was cut and pasted, as it has no relevance to the thread. And it's always someone with zero previous posts. We see this every once in a while.
    Anyway, to the Admin: Please delete this thread, as I can't see how to do it.
    Thanks.

    It is a tactic they use to test if they can post and do a link thru to,use this server's bandwidth instead of their own. When successful they then create a signature in their profile with the website that they want to promote and this site gets charged for the bandwidth. I have banned hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of these and other spammers here.
