The Spamming Must Be Driving The Mods Crazy

Post by veebass » 25 Jan 2018, 08:05

The recent tirade of spam must be driving Phil and the mods crazy. It has been heavy duty this morning. Thanks for your efforts.

That could be easily misused though. What do you mean 'modern basses are better'? Obviously spam, so I'll delete. :shrug:

My biggest problem is some of those spam post are really long and I think I'll read it later. I come back to find how I can improve my life and it's gone. :shrug:
