    Ditto! There has to be a way to stop this permanently. I visit several other forums, mostly sports chat and have never seen this problem. Perhaps the Mods could check with other sites to see how they prevent this.

    Where are you all reporting these trolls/spammers/pains in the rear/whatever to? I've been just ignoring them. They're pretty easy to spot by their names, also the titles they give the posts. When I see a topic with a lot of views but no replies I stay away from it.

    If we all simply ignore them, eventually the first pertinent, readable thread will be buried back on page 2 or 3 behind a boatload of spam posts.

    I just started reporting the posts to our anti-spam software (which doesn't seem to be doing a great job as of late), and I'm hoping it'll be able to get with the picture and keep the spam out for good.

    Other than that, I just went through and deleted about 30 that were clogging up the the subforums, which I'm trying to do every day to keep it manageable until the problem is officially solved.

    I appreciate everyone who's been reporting the posts and keeping me on top of things. If it doesn't end soon, I might just end up banning the words "live stream" from the forum, since that's what's in the body of all the spam posts. Will keep everyone updated.
