FYI, there were 7 passport posts spammed at once this morning, only one got through. I nabbed all while the spammer was still online! Gotta love the look on his face when he can't post anymore. :)

But the passport thing is particularly amusing... who would possibly attempt to use a faked passport that comes from an unknown source? Sounds like a ticket to jail if you ask me!

I guess it's testament to the fact that Drummerworld has a huge membership, which is attractive to spammers.

Thanks Jon. I know we only see the tip of the iceberg, & thank you for the daily diligence needed to thwart these lice :)
