I have seen this show up on several posts. I flagged them all as I see them.

I can’t figure out how people can think they will move someone to read their junk by insulting them with unwanted emails and posts. Go figure….. larry

I think they’re just trying to push up their site ranking on Google- more postings about it, the higher they climb in Google’s search.

It’s almost certainly a spam bot; a program that spews crap out into whatever forum or other area they can. They can be tenacious in getting into email accounts and harvesting addresses to do the same. That’s one of the reasons it’s a good idea to change your password every so often or have a really complicated, long one.

IF you are the OP of a post, and get a spammer…go to his profile, and block the spammer. Same goes for all the people on here. If you see a spammer doing their thing, go out and block them, before they find YOUR posts..

Sorry to disappoint you but I don’t drink. I was spending some time with my grandbabies.

As distrbd mentioned above, this has been handled.
