You may find some "spam" topics in the forums upon your arrival.  Please rest assured that the moderators are working diligently to remove it and that your on-topic posts will not be buried.
 
Thanks for using the Intelproplaw Forums, and happy posting!

Put a captcha-type add-on (typing a screen-made image
before posting). Should solve most if not all the spam. Wink
 
Have whoever's handling the tech parts of this forum to
look at the one below:

Generally speaking, all of the spam seems to come from guest accounts.  If the image thingy is used, I'd recommend iniitially making members exempt from using it.

It is a sad fact that spam is an invasive form, and should be prevented from getting into forums such as this one. I enjoy being an infrequent guest, and value the advice given. regards, steve

SPAM is on the increase again.  There was a ton a couple months ago, then it dropped.
