I just spent an hour and a half today trying to find all the spammers and delete them. I have deactivated this last guy three times. He must be using multiple browsers.

The internet is a great place to advertise especially if it is a free public site. It's easy to join and during hard times with the economy, spammers will use every opportunity to get business. It is against GG's rules, so it is the moderator's job to delete the blog or forum reply and to deactivate the spammer. I don't know how much spam is blocked by the site administrators, but the moderators take care of what slips through.

Send a message to Kate_H and ask her to make you a moderator.
