    restaurantmarketing6 was a spammer. Some of these guys don't even try to be discreet.

    Shocked, I say, shocked! ;)




    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      I thought a lot about this. Some of the members seem to be automated
      Fake ones, and that seems to be going to some trouble just to have
      possible  authority over tens of thousands or more. Maybe
      a republican techie guru just didnt like us. Once it was realized that
      Dk isn't really a democracy maybe ole despicable me backed off with
      Bot generation . A more diabolical plan would be to tie up servers with
      denial of service attacks if 100k users try to post at once and an outside denial of service attack is also going on mbe cause the techies here a headache. Dont know how to fight that stuff im not that knowledgeable. Mbe an auto wait time for newer users associated with processor /network load idk good luck n thanks for site
