Hey... this "Bed26" guy seems to be some sort of spam advertising. Let's review the facts.

- He posts 5 messages within 3 minutes
- His posts just don't make any sense
- He posts worthless comments to other people's comments
- He does all of this, but he's not me or Savoysultan Wink
- His signature is for online casinos and video poker.
- His website is for a 3rd online casino

I don't want to see this continue, so I'd suggest he be blocked. I can't figure out a way to "Ignore user's posts" as is an option in other forums.

Just a comment...

good call, shizzle. looks like it's a bot... it has posted the same links on a bunch of other forums too (goooogle says 183). ip address is an email server in england.

first bot i've seen that quotes other posts though. and it looks like it works on more than one type of forum. genius. if only they could learn to spell...
