I was wondering how this happened? And can this person be banned from the site of further use.

Although I did not see his reply, it had already been deleted by the Mod: TJ Jeff.

I have no Idea that it was spam but I clicked on the posters Profile and it said that he was Male but it did not say if he was a survivor and it said that he was in the Adult Entertainment Industry with a link to his Facebook Page expressing just that.

This is concerning to me that someone like that found MS, decided to post here and Posted in my thread, of all places!!!

Should I be concerned about this?
Have there been problems like this before?
What if this happens again?

Logan

Logan,

Spammers register here from time to time. We generally catch them within a couple of hours but not always. The penalty for spamming is immediate and permanent suspension in nearly all cases.

Any time any user sees thing s that concern them it is a good idea to send a note to a mod so it can be checked out. Spam is no exception, especially if it's of questionable content such as the one you noted.

Mods are always on the prowl for stuff like this and most of the time they are caught and eliminated before anyone actually sees them but once in a while they make it through the net. You guys have always been good at letting us know when they do. Together we can keep the website safe.

Thanks John for the reassurance. You have my word that I will do my part in trying to keep this one of a kind, special community safe and alert one of you guys if I see anything like the above mentioned elsewhere.
