Guys if you get inappropriate spam in your PM box, click the report button and we will deal with the user(s) in question.
I know the guy who made this image... He plays on my server in FFXI (the image is made out of assets of the said game, FYI). Very appropriated.

Spam-O-Matic works really well on a vBulletin 4 forum i own.
You can block by keyword too, so if a bot is constantly spamming your forum with "hotfile.com" in the message for example, you can simply blacklist that and he will always be denied posting. After a person has mad a set amount of posts (e.g. 5) you can disable it checking any posts made by that user.
I got a pm from him as well.
I won't point fingers, and you can call me paranoid... but I seem to be seeing more and more new users posting everywhere just to get to 50 posts and be able to sell in the marketplace...
Seems a round of nazi pedo bear PM are going out. If you get one just report it and we will ban the user.
Stupid spill over from neo-geo/shmups. =/
Insert stupid poem here.
I think maybe some boards with stringer restrictions like you need X posts to post here or you need to get aproved by mod to post there.
To find info for free is the cool think of AG, I hate it when google cached something and I am not allowed to view it.
Links or donwloads for members only is fine by me, also if its means I need to have 200 posts or be a member for 5 month (or a website donater)
I think AG is a nice place and there are more forums like this, but there are also many noobs and X-S like websites, or worse. I dont like that to happen to this place.
Its properbly dificult to maintain a balance, my own forum did well till some regular guys dint come over anymore. spam bots everywhere and no new intresting stuff, AG happens to have this everyday a new intresting post. and just about a good volume of users who post informative and/or funny posts. I dont post alott, mainly because english isnt my main language, and also because some people can take my words wrong. but maybe thats just me, and I just should post more and trust others more. I dunno. Go away spammers and to people who want to sell stuff, go ebay, we will find it if you put the right keywords on it. I exidently got a MSX computer part last week, wy do I keep looking for those things online ?
Long post, luckely my Post count is only +1, there is no word count here :D ow and I like the logo, but not the Blue :/ gonna change my theme.

Making this place invitation only is a great way to kill it off fast. We've had plenty of regulars join in the last 2 years it isn't funny and if it was invite only we'd probably not have seen even 1/4 of that.
