    @Charles P. Jefferies

    I have been noticing an increased amount of spam lately from people who are posting links to external sites mostly about supplements and performance enhancing drugs.

    I suggest putting a restriction on newly registered members that auto converts URLs they post to **** until they reach a certain post count.

    We have an anti-spam filter you wouldn't see that catches many users before they make it to the forum. But noted.

    That will cause more spammers to post in multiple threads to get around that limit. We have the same problem where I'm a mod myself and taking out the trash is a tough job.
