I'm sure the mods are working as hard as they can. Trust me, you've not seen the worst of it. The site has had a lot of upgrades since I joined that help limit the volume of scammers.

It's like a small sauce pot now, the usual year after year at this time, as bored school kids think causing trouble online is a fun thing to do. School starts & it simmers down.

scams is not really the term I'd use - there have been some spammers directly contacting members via the email system, which is something that the Admins have now put a fix in place for.

In terms of spammer activity on this forum, it's incredibly common. We probably ban 5-10 spammers per day......it's simply because you've got such a fantasic Mod team that you would barely notice the spam :)

Online safety reminder and disclaimer in beginners sticky? I kid !!
Truly I wonder about some of the wonder cycle additive posts, and discount them, but I get no direct ( I set my profile to "no thank you" anyway) emails.

It is a concern though.

13? well then grats on being a tad mature beyond your years.
