Your help is appreciated. And I promise to act on any reports as soon as I see them. I am just learning this stuff, but with your help we can keep this site clean.

Thank you. I noticed the long one. Was gonna wait a day, but saw two more New members posting nonsense, so I locked the posts down. I'll dump them asap.
And please do keep me on my toes I stop by everyday, even when I have nothing to say.
But to see how things are, and that this place remains a friendly site.

I'm only a moderator, but based on experience from other sites and after reading all the posts. I banned all those who posted spam. Six in total today.
If I was wrong and banned anyone unfairly, they can find a way to get it sorted out.
This just isn't the place to post sunglasses and sex toys.
There are plenty of other places to do that.
I'm a guest here, as is everyone. It's not my site, but I have been given responsibility to keep it clean and on topic.
Thanks guys.

Yeah I'm on it. More than I thought. I'm going thru every new posting listed. Dumping all non gun items. Immediately banning sex toy/casino adds.

Busy 15 minutes or so. Banned 4 people. Dumped 20 + posts, 16 from one guy. None gun, or topic related.
I thought I banned myself when I couldn't find this post.
If anyone thinks I've used the ban button too quickly, please tell me. I do read every post before I drop it in the trash. And banning is the only way to get rid of the spammers. The guy with 16 posts, used the names of all the people I banned earlier Monday.
You see anything I miss, let me know.
