I agree and I am one of the people deleting it. It's to the point as soon as some is deleted more appears. Please send your complaints directly to the owners of the site http://www.verticalscope.com/ maybe they actually do something about like employ a better security check at registration.

I just sent a message to Vertical Scope stating the spam situation over here. Hopefully they will take action.

Well it's only really being contained to a new members forum area and that's only for newly registering spammers. It does nothing for the 1000's of already registered spammers that will slowly come back to post spam. They really need to go through the member list and ban all of them. Unfortunately I only have the ability to do so one by one which I won't be doing.

WAY better!

I'm not exactly sure who did what but I really appreciate the effort of those who dealt with the problem. :thanks:
