WTF

I haven't seen any of those. Perhaps all the ads about mail order brides are sent for you specifically?

when I made that post I had only saw two ad's, both for Russian women
now I have see lot more other ad's just for other products. I assume that most ads were about that topic

I fear additional measures are becoming necessary, I kicked around nine of them out, I go do some grocery shopping, come back, four more have popped up. :| I wish I could just meet the people who are responsible for these ads so I strangle them with my own hands...

Hey, I check back here extremely often, and I have to disapprove like 6 of them each time. I just make it part of my usual routine of reading all the posts.

So what do we do about it? Lock it? Delete it?

That thread, at least, helps people get out their retard-urges instead of letting it leak on to the rest of the forum.

Maybe that "support" website that one guy made a while ago did get the attention of some people outside of this community after all.

so it would be easier for someone with banning power can ban their IP's

Are the IP's even coming from a specific region or is it bouncing off of proxys?

Give me a name and I'll try banning them. I have an option next to everyone's name in their profile called "Banning".

EDIT: tested banning on - jvkciuregg - works. This user had a post waiting approval that was just spam.
