    Any idea why so many fake members post spam in the Chicago Bulls forum?

    Well, it's VERY hard to stop actual people posting spam. The things we've done have prevented computers from doing it automatically.

    The more spammers we get the more data we can collect on them and try to figure out how to stop them. @Loki figured out one demographic so that should stop a could of them.

    I REALLY don't understand why people spam though.

    I know it's hard to stop them. I was just wondering why they always post it in the same forum. ^^

    Anyway, thanks for all the work you guys have done so far. ;-)

    I'm pretty sure it's because that is the first forum on the forum list.
