    :curse: two new "threads" from somebody called "Carmac" - "free desktops" and "pink razr phones" - surely not Train/modelling related?

    Thanks for the heads-up. The posts are gone and I am sure Carmac will be following soon.

    Thanks, Tom just took care of this guy. Just for your information, we harvest these spam posts on a regular basis, usually the first mod on-line finds and deletes them then when Mikey gets the sleepy seeds out of his eyes,:sleeping: :sleeping: he drums them off the Gauge. We appreciate all the help we can get in spotting and getting rid of these scoundrels.:wave::thumb:

    Tom, Don, since I own/moderate one group and moderate 6 others, I know what fun it is keeping an eye on idiot spammers, and smacking them - HARD! That's why I bought it to your attention - sometimes we miss one or two of the small illegitimate personages! <VBG>

    Well Ralph, try getting up before noon some day.:sleeping: :sleeping: Remember, I'm in Arizona and so I'm a couple of hours behind the east coast and geeze, those guys in Oz have been up a good half day. But, in spite of that, even though we sold our business a few years ago, I still can't get out of the habit of getting up way too early.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I do admit though, there is a certain amount of pleasure watching a spammer post his garbage and deleting it within a minute or two of when he does. That's got to drive them crazy, or maybe they think we have an automatic de-spammer...:D :D

    Soooo, I assume nobody's interested in the bridge I've got for sale?

    It's a nice one too.

    The only way you're going to sell me any stinkin' bridge is if it happens to be located in Brooklyn :D

    Swamp land in Florida? I have some, someone sold me..... :D :D
    I suspected that he wasn't only a spammer, but a scammer. They don't make a pink RAZR phone...Only black and silver.
    I checked it out.
