F*ckers. Happens every day here somewhere. If you're keen to see more, feel free to visit AF's lovely Spam Gallery (http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1151). But thanks for pointing it out.

We get spammed every day. This site is so big it's like a magnet for these spammers. One of the Mod's job is to remove it when we come across it. Most of the time you don't see it because we've already discovered it and removed it. But there are times that it appears in less viewed forums and can be there for a few days before being discovered. One way members can help the Mods is to report it when you see it. In each post in the lower left corner is a small triangle that is red and white with a " ! " in it. That is actually a link you can click to report that post as being a "bad post". When you click it a message is sent to the Moderators notifying them of that post to take action. You can use that link to report spam, a member not following proper posting techniques ( excessive foul language, flaming, etc.)
