    tdjcbe, what can be done about it?

    Alex King and company, of course, have no idea about who is doing it.

    Sorry about the spam everyone.

    An overzealous intern recruited some friends back home (yes - India) and went a little post crazy.

    They have been reprimanded and it has been stopped immediately. They are now in the process of removing every post.

    Alex, nor his team at Crowd Favorite had anything to do with this.

    Our apologies.

    Lloyd, I really do hope that I don't have to tell you how to do your job.

    They are now in the process of removing every post.

    I await word from the poster on the forums that they hit. I have to admit though that I would be concerned if I had an employee or intern who didn't understand that spam was bad.
