    Yea. iPhone-Hacks is now more cluttered with this C.Rap then ever. We got users who sign up for no reason. Those may not need to really get deleted as it will happen automatically after a certain period of no activity so its a bit tolerable IMHO.

    But those advertisers and spammers really DO need to get banned and deleted. Do you think you can do that Mods, Admins? I mean, they really are giving the site a bad feel due to their shady nature and the shady nature of their products where applicable. And they are using OUR forum for free advertisement for stuff that dont really work that good. So by that the forum is also used to spread useless bull all over the place. Which is also a downside that can affect the image and reputation of our beloved iPhone-Hacks.com

    So please, Admins/Mods.. Do what you can. I'd really personally hate to see this great forum stumble because of these lame @$$ bulls. Know what am saying?

    A calling, greeting and regard from Aliandro Operator. :)

    Note: It would be the admins who have the power to do this, and/or Greg

    I kind of agree. We haven't seen it hit the highest point of spam that it could, so I say we have to clip this as quickly as possible.

    On a side note, I REALLY hate those animated ads we have on every page. It lags my browser so much it's incredible. I don't mind throwing in ads, as long as they don't tax your browsing. That bugs the hell out of me

    I know whatcha mean, Ned.
    We gotta cut off the roots of the tree before it starts fruiting if you know what am saying.

    And bout those animated Ads, if your using Firefox you REALLY should give AdBlock a try. <<;
    And it works for more than just ad blocking, also for downloading videos and flash stuff by getting their direct link. :D


    Oh, and Admins, Greg, please do tell us what you can do bout this problem. I mean, the whole User-advertising thing.

    We'll be waiting, fellas! ;)

    I know. Sometimes I use Firefox, but since it came out, I've been using Google Chrome. It lags like crazy in Chrome, but it loads fine in Firefox. Chrome is faster though...

    Alright. I'll report all of the ones I can find now.
    But its not gonna be 'everything'. Perhaps you should announce this in the right section so everyone can see it: Whenever you see a person advertising and spamming and whatnot, report it.
    Wouldnt it help? :)


    Edit: One question. Ned, what animated Ads are you talking bout?
    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Random, I know. But I havent seen a single animated ad on the forum.

    Ho, shiz. You mean the main page of the website, dont you? xDDDD



    I feel retarded... :idea: :( :|
