This may depend on the frequency I come here but I haven't seen a single spam since my last post in this thread.  It seems the moderators have been doing a good job.  In fact, I needed to search for this thread.  ;)

Well it isn't there any more, so keep on reporting them and they don't get the oxygen of publicity for long.

This is a question you have to ask yourself ;D

Why is the location of every spammer set as Afghanistan?

It is the first option available in the list of countries.., well that might be a best guess.. someone had actually mentioned it previously..

yeah, you don't think they'd actually make sure to update their country of origin before happily sending their spam everywhere, do you?  ;D
