Today was rough , I must have taken down 10 posts , yesterday wasn’t so bad . If I had a way to remove the offender i think I could choke most of it off completely as it seems to be from the same 3-5 accounts . But alas , I can only work within my newfound powers . But be assured I’m doing my absolute best to lessen the garbage posts around my favorite forum for model building !! 

"rare" kit? no such thing!

build it, dont let it sit on the shelf.....

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......

Reported 3 at 4:30.  Noticed "adriankahn" is still active, I know I have reported that one at least 6 or more times over a four day period.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Thaks Dale. My frustration isn't with you. They should let you remove these turds.

The "adriankhan" portal needs to be stopped immediately.  This morning alone I have reported 5 SPAMs and have reported him at least that many times over the past few days.

Same here. It is getting very old. I have been with this forum since it started. Day one, and this really grates on me.

Same here. I wonder if there's a way for an admin to log that person out and change her/his password...that would at least slow them down.

The admin could, mods can't do anything but delete posts. Sad. Very sad.

This morning it looks like "fareed" is trying to take over for "adriankahn".  I have reported four posts.
