    Please Report Spam Postings!

    Almost every forum on the internet right now is having an issue with spammers registering for forums and posting "improper" things. We have our forum set up to make it so that you cannot register unless you verify an image on the registration page. This works for most spam bots, however,the problem is that most of the stuff you see making it through now is the work of real people. These people are doing this from foriegn ip addresses, and different email addresses. We have done all that we can to control this without hurting user experiance for everyone else.

    This being the case, we ask that your report all spam/questionable posts (using the button on each post) so that we may handle it as soon as possible. Also, please do not reply to these postswhen you see them. It does no good, and will be deleted anyway.

    Thanks!

    We delete them as soon as week see them. This is why it is important they be reported. There are anywhere between 1250-2000 posts a day, so it gets hard to keep up with.

    Thanks!

    Wait a second...you would have to open up the thread to see the pictures that were posted there sir. That is, unless you got introuble for the title of the thread.

    I think the title of the thread confused me. They misspelled a word so I thought it was some sort of car-tech vocab word that I was unfamiliar with. Boy was I wrong.

    I think a "CLI" version would technically be more correct.

    I will. For the past weeks people have been posting stupid threads that have nothing to do with anything.
