We aren't being over run by spammers, but I am starting to see a greater number of spam posts creeping in.

If you come across a spam post (generic, totally unrelated to the topic, or posting a new topic unrelated to the purpose to this forum provided by 3dGameMan) please mark it as offensive (only possible on replies) and then leave a note here as to the location of the post and user ID to assist in cleanup by the forum mod.

First of the day: Multiple posts in "Overclocking & Cooling" by ID "collin2", all identical. Likely, "collin2" is a bot.

Under "Other Promotions" we have "The TaylorMade R11 TP Driver specific description" by "talia".

These golf people are nuts, they WANT ME TO UPGRADE MY DRIVERS!!! I recently bought a set of Maxfli A10 irons, and my poor old drivers look so sad in the bag with all of the bright new clubs!

Sorry I was out for a bit... nasty cold running that I may have picked up while on vacation last week. Thanks for the cleanup, Razear! I'll get the next one.

Pardon me for asking an off-topic question but shouldn't Razear get the blue color for his/her posts? It's like it's impossible to distinguish between regular users and moderators.

I was a bit surprised that Razear can move threads and delete posts.

Pardon me, Razear. :)

Zach was sent an email about that moderator color issue but has yet to do anything about it.

Nope. I have the amazing ability to BE TOO POOR to contribute cash! Let's hope that gets fixed this year.

Only for right now, I figure using the "contributed members" option is an okay compromise until Zach can get around to it. I'm looking at this temp fix as "people that have contributed working time hours to 3GM". This is not a life and death situation to worry about.

O.T. Anyone getting a tax return and upgrading their computers? :)

I would very much like to get into a Bulldozer, but at the moment renovating the kitchen is taking priority. We are currently walking on bare plywood, cooking on a stove that works only sometimes, washing dishes in a dishwasher that needs weekly repairs, and PRAYING that the fridge doesn't suddenly freeze up again and melt everything inside. After that, technology may be possible, but my wife needs a new laptop for work (work from home stuff) so she gets first dibs on what is left over.

I hate being a nice guy... "Screw you all, I'm building a $4000 computer and PLAYING GAMES FOREVER!!!" LOL! I never could, but the thought does cross my mind!

I most likely will not be getting a tax refund, which kinda sucks. I hoping to build my first computer this year.

Still no word from Zach? Not that I care about the green vs. blue, but there are things I could be doing that thus far I can't do with my account in it's current state.

Oh, yeah, Tivon or 3dGameMan, can you remove user account "jakttout" as he seems to be the rebirth of the golf posts.
