Default Spamers taking spam to a whole new level?

Is it just me... or are spammers taking spam to a whole new level? Now they're using our posts and putting links on them? O.o

Not really a new level. Lot's of plagiarizing spammers out there.

The McAfee thinking that Chaz is unsafe could be due to the server move.

I'd imagine it be more annoying for you mods though to keep off the board though, since it gets stuck in your average post? (like my first post -.-)
At first I thought people were actually posting links.

"Irritating" . . . yeah. Especially considering their sheer numbers

Would it help if we flagged them as spam? Or would that lead to the whole post being deleted?

It might

Look at how many times we've managed to ban someone by mistake

McAfee has been telling me Chaz is dangerous for a while. Others have reported it as well.

Hundred and twenty spam threads on the board,
One hundred twenty spam threads.
Take them all down,
Ban them all 'round,
Another hundred threads of spam on the board.

Is the new server helping? Is it supposed to help?

The new server's not going to do anything about the spam by itself, but it's supposed to be the first active step toward updating all the things so we can have better spam filters.
