I know certain members on here are renown for lying and only post to entice others to increase their post count etc(we all know who he/it is), but how can this happen?

I only spam when a thread is duplicated

There is a bitter wallet thread, but it's been expired not spammed. I think you may have exclude expired on in your view options ;-)

Cant be that one. Mods have locked it. Was it on account of the OP expireing the thread so assumed it wasn't wanted any more?

Can anyone tell me why posts relating to jade goody memorial candles have been spammed/removed, firstly from the deals section and now from misc?

Surely if people don't want to discuss a topic they have the option of not clicking on them? Just because something doesnt fit their criteria of "things i will discuss" it is no reason to spam, in fact surely its abuse of the spam facility if anything?

I haven't seen any of the threads in question, but "Jade Goody" threads usually have a lot of "jokes" that are in poor taste, and deserved to be spammed the ****** off HUKD. :)

Isn't that sort of thing what the "report post" button is for, although even then its debatable whether a 'joke' is worth reporting just because it fails to match up with your sense of humour.

I don't know whether they reported it too, but they are within their rights to "Spam" it.

I don't think it has anything to do with "Matching your sense of humour", most of them are plain and simply "Bad taste", and I haven't seen any return, so HUKD seem to agree. :)
