    There are a few users that have emails as their usernames as well.

    Best way to get rid of them is a moderator that does something.

    Yeah I have seen a couple with their email address as their username but they actually post lol

    These accounts just post random stuff like

    Seriously guys the mods are doing a lot to try and stop these.

    All we can do is delete the threads we can't ban only the admins can do that. Petition Peach and Adrenalin to let the mods ban so we can do something.

    The moderators over the past two weeks have been deleting many posts " in the hundreds" and also banning many users. The issue has been raised to the admins to which we are awaiting a fix.

    Thanks for your support.

    As JB said, I deleted over a hundred threads last night alone.

    Don't report them, every moderator gets an email each and every time someone reports a post and if you report every spam thread you see, we'll get hundreds of email alerts. Bear with us while we attempt to get on top of it on.

    To be honest its probably good you brought this up we (the mods) should have made a post about it informing everyone.

    i just got a very dipressing spam bot mesage


    Everything good has died........
    Everything good has died........
    Here's the thing: Yesterday i passed by the local grocery, i saw a tragic scene: A girl dragged her <strong><a href="http://www.dudool.com/luggage-&-travel-bags-c-1139.html">Luggage For Travel</a></strong> from one of the <strong><a href="http://www.dudool.com/apparel-&-accessories-c-977.html">Clothing Stores</a></strong> ,her boyfriend called her, she turned back, unfortunately a car crashed her, he kept her in his arm crying...

    I was so sad for them, during the night i couldn't sleep, when i connected the matter with my rough experience, so i wrote a little poetry.


    Everything is gone.

    Everything happy in my world is smashed, as I run here, looking at my reflextion, I smash it so it can join my happieness.

    Everything loved in my world has crashed, as I go down in the plane that I built by hand, waiting............always waiting.

    Everything beautiful in my world has been distroyed, as I just stood there watching, not doing anything about it.

    Everything good has died in my world, as I lay here putting holes through my body, wishing, hoping the day I get pulled out of this sea of lonelyness, pain, and hate.

    Everything is gone.
