I think the amount of spam that gets thrown around on un-moderated newsgroups show that you can humiliate someone as much as possible but they will keep coming back for more.

I know what you're saying but leaving up these kind of posts one second longer than necessary to catch it only encourages the spammers.

If they're removed, the poster receives the appropriate PM from Admin or moderators online at the time.

Better to click a link and see nothing, than click to see some of the spam that has managed to come through, or taken longer to remove.

The other problem to with leaving them up even without the link is they clutter up the forum and it's that much more stuff to sort through to get to the actual deals.

Point taken. I was just exercising some lateral thinking.
