Spam and New User Registrations
We've been hit with a few user registrations which resulted in potentially harmful spam postings. These postings contain links and keywords which the user is hoping will be picked up by search engines and therefore direct more people to their site. While I really don't want to censor posts, I felt I needed to remove these posts. I have no problem with users promoting products and services, as long as he/she is also contributing to the forum usefully.
I also do not want to begin manually validating each and every user registration, but if I cannot stop the spamming, I might need to do that. I will post an announcement if that should occur.
