Looked like a coordinated attack! Well done Dave!

Was that spam about the cannabis seeds for sale on the Plant ID Forum? I submitted a proposal to move it to Classifieds. Smiling

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

@dave - a whole batch of spam has just been posted in Classifieds. I've reported several of the posts, but I think you'll need to clean it up. Thanks.

Oh my goodness ... it does look like some Spammer has been having a field day on the Classified Forum! I'm sure @Dave or @jon will be able to take care of it.
