Just a heads up, but in the General Toy Talk forum there are 3 new threads started by "bestfullery" that seem to be one continuing post about restaurants and a jacket manufacturer.

I'm thinking spambot myself.

There is just something oddly satisfying about banning a spammer. Get em mods!

Anything we can do about those Russian spammers we've been getting lately?

There will always be a few that slip through the cracks because they use real people to register. They best thing to do if you see one of them before we do is to report the post.

Yeah, I do a lot of that already, I was just wondering if there was a more permanent solution.

No idea...we're banning a handful every day, and with the heavy volume, they're getting through the approval system. It's annoying.

There is a new "Funny Pictures" thread in the Funnybooks forum.

Just thought I would give you a heads up.

What's interesting, is that every time a new one is posted there are always 3 views every time I look at it and sometimes I know it was just posted and 3 views would be almost impossible in that short a time frame.
