DO NOT REPLY TO SPAMMERS

Forum spammers need you to reply to messages for the spam to work. It's not about you clicking the links, it's about search engines. The more you reply to a spam post the more it get's promoted in search engines.

There are "hidden" forum members called bots which are driven by Google, Yahoo, Bing etc and these little forum engines pick up on popular threads so if you reply to a spam message you make the thread more popular. You're doing the spammers job for them!

Doesn't really matter Smile They are banned and the spam keywords get added to the filter before their posts even get indexed by Google.
