Has anyone else noticed an increase in spam in the forums? Or, am I just noticing it more?

I am talking about the people who come on, make a few posts (ALL of which direct you to a website or email or phone), and never anything else.

It used to be love spam in a PM, but now it is magic spells this, weight loss that, and just click the link to find the true story.
Is it on the rise, or is it my imagination?
My work here is, finally, done.

I think you're right on that. I've seen maybe 3 or 4 in the past week, and they seem much more common now.

"The sight of my succulent backside acts as a sedative for the beholder. It soothes the pain of life and makes all which hurts seem like bliss. I urge all those stressed by ridiculous drama on DDO which will never affect your real life to gaze upon my cheeks for they will make you have an excitement and joy you've never felt before." -- Dr. Dennybug

Spam ebbs and flows. Every once in awhile there's a new assault of it, and it goes on for awhile, then the bots move on to other targets.
