Folks, I just had to delete a spam posting and its associated user. When I first saw the registration, I had my doubts about the "validity" of the registration, but I let it go. Just a few minutes ago, though, I saw the first post by this person and it was clearly and unequivocably spam. I deleted the post and banned the user.

There are likely to be changes coming to the forum that will allow certain types of commercial postings, but they will be very tightly controlled and limited. The type of post I deleted, though, will NEVER be allowed.

If you're a new registrant to this forum and your driving purpose is to advertise something not even tangentially related to racing, please don't. It wastes my time and pisses me off. And, yes, we track IP addresses.
