    Social Group Spam

    Was browsing through the social groups noticed they've been overrun with spam for example there's around 9 Dating groups which have links leading to dating advertisements along with one group called Test Group which has a bunch of links for prescription drugs. The forum staff was probably already aware of this but I know a lot of things go by unnoticed like the libertarian political group and Baha'i group so I just wanted to make sure. Have a nice day

    I had a funny feeling you would mention that before your post did finish, considering I read your post in that social group

    I don't think his opinion on the Libertarian party has anything to do with this, it has been explicitly stated by the staff that political issues are not allowed in social groups.

    EDIT: Also, thanks Matthew

    Thanks again. But next time maybe post links to them to make the mod's/admins life a little easier.

    I should know, since I was the first person to start a Ron Paul Social Group which recently got deleted.

    Re: Social Group Spam

    The original topic of this thread was regarding spam, which has no been removed.

    Should you wish to continue the discussion regarding other social groups, this thread is not the place for that.

    Thanks
