This is something that needs to be kept up with. I remember the spam problem that invaded the Audubon Society forums a couple of years ago. What, you can't find the Audubon Society forums? That's because the spam problem got so bad that all the regular users of the forums left and Audubon decided the way to combat the problem was to close the forums altogether. That's why I spend a minute or two clearing the spam here. I'd hate to see the forums go ti ts up just because Amazon doesn't seem to care.
P.S. And what's really idiotic about this problem is that my message got sent to mod-land because of a certain word above, so i edited the word with an extra space and it went through fine. Amazon can stop one of my messages because of a four letter word, but they can't stop the spam? This is why I think they don't care.
