$$$$$$$$....they probably get paid for the number of 'posts' they successfully post....Their rate of return has to be near zilch ! :roll: :roll: :roll:

I have always thought the links they provide were straight to virus central.

Glad you guys got it all fixed up

I don't think fastvega meant anything personal. It was really bad this weekend. Almost every thread was full of the spam and i mean FULL of it. I was also about ready to give it up for a few days until bj and top sportsman got it fixed. I'm not knocking those guys because i know they just couldn't keep up with the amount that was getting on here and as fast as it was happening.
We seam to be back to normal (Whatever that may be. lol) now and for the first time in while the forum is pretty active with all sorts of questions and comments.

dude, there was nothing said that was directed at brian or tom... the whole problem was higher up then the mods here. i was a mod on a few different sites... i know what is involved when it comes to dealing with stuff like this and know it was beyond what brian and tom could do on this end....the longer you let spam bots into the site... the more you will get cause they send the info to other bots to post here too and even though they were working their ass off at removing them as fast as they could... their are millions of them out there and its like pissing into the wind if you dont fix the security issue that is allowing them in to begin with :wink:

I don't think they get paid by how many post they create, but everytime someone clicks on the site that they posted, then they get paid for the click. They will eventually just go away if no one clicks on the site posted. I don't think anyone on this forum will be clicking on anything that they have posted.
