Is there anything that can be done about what's going on with these? Personally, I can avoid them, and not cause myself too much grief about it. But, I'm pretty confident that everybody using these boards isn't a 40 something. I'd almost bet that there are some teens and dare I say younger frequenting these boards. Probably some of your kids. I know that Harley, Joseph, and everyone else that can, gets them deleted as quickly and they're made aware of them. I'm just wondering if there isn't some kind of a filtering system that's supposed to catch spam posts.

Forgiveness is between you and your maker. I'm just responsible for the meeting.

It's ridiculously difficult to keep the spam out. I changed the registration policies so it's harder to register, and there's the visual identification test, and the spammers still somehow manage to register. I'll check out these suggestions and hopefully one of them will help...
