I haven't noticed spam anywhere else except the economics forum. Topics like "great nutritious bar" and other junk from random bots or adverts always appear there. Why there and not anywhere else? Does this crap get posted elsewhere but get deleted more quickly before it gets noticed?

It does get posted everywhere but not as frequently as in the economics forum. There is no definite reason but I believe its because it is the weakest topic on DDO that not as many people know about. Since there is practically nothing useful to say in the forum that anybody will actually comment on everything either gets derailed or people just spam topics in it.

I have seen debates like this too where people make topics like "Love Potion" and they just insert random numbers and talk about love potions. It is irritating.
