Bots that spam advertisments. We all hate that. Any ideas on what can be done to rectify this problem?

That would be Airmax's department, in exchanges ive had with him it isnt very easy to ban spambots from posting ads in the forums. The only way we might be able to cut down on it is to make it harder for new accounts to easily post in the forums, which naturally causes more problems since making a site more un-user-friendly tends to be a step in the wrong direction....
