Why all these spammers will waste their time to post on this forum? I really do not understand the logic, if there is one...

This is obvious but why here? I don't think anybody here would fall in these traps...

All it takes is a click in many cases and they get paid. Worth the time to lather them on anywhere they can I suppose. Most of us never click but I would feel pretty confident some members click.

Ah ok, thanks for your answer (Yes I never click)...

The real question is why isn't more done to deal with it. Seems like a few more mods are needed. Or the site has just been given up on.

Seems to me a few years ago, before the advent of the first "Report Spammers" folders (link to the second) that the owners/admins preferred to not have 3 party admins assisting. There were a few members that had offered their time to help.

Also it seemed some life events were taking precedence with the maintenance of the site; however response to postings in the RP's folder was and remained rather prompt.

Sadly it does seem that the site is in it's death throes Sad
