    Why all of a sudden are you getting so many spam posts? A lot look like sports (you can hover over and not open)

    Do you have a bot from a betting combine hacking this site?

    Or, to eliminate the problem, MSQC could stop supporting this forum. I love visiting here, but it costs them to maintain it. I don't see FQS or fabric.com doing this. It seems to me, they do a pretty nice job. Just food for thought.

    That reminds me, MSN took down the ability to leave comments. It was getting so nasty and political for even the most innocent stories. First it said disabled, then they took it entirely down.

    When I broke my wrist last month I stayed off the computer for close to a month. Felt good to get away from all the weird stuff and complaining.

    Ahhhhhhhh, that the worst thing in my life would be that I had to just scroll past a little bit of obvious spam!! I'd consider life to be wonderful and a perfect day.

    Thank you Carlie. Some people just seem to be happier if they are b!tching.....js. This forum is an amazing thing that M* has given to us....they don't have to...think about that....I know I would be much more unhappy to lose this place, than to have to deal with a few spam posts.
