    I'm going to leave this very strange post in as obviously the offending spam post has been removed.

    But please spammers... we couldn't really care less about your Heat jerseys. Yes, Lebron James is coming to The Heat. Yes, we have 3 All Stars now. But guess what? MiamiBeach411 does not care! We don't want your spam clogging up our forums. NO ONE WANTS YOUR FAKE ASS JERSEYS!!!

    Oh, and we'll keep deleting you and banning you until you get the message, comprende?

    Wow, such strong language so early in the am.

    We do HATE spammers; it is a waste of everyone's time.

    We are happy to have 3 all-stars on the Miami Heat. But, we don't need info about your jerseys. We live here; I think we can manage to get them ourselves.

    Late last night a former member named "belle" left nearly 30 spam messages with links about an online company selling jerseys. These messages were spread out over random threads with no context related to the threads. Fred alerted me on Twitter and I came in an deleted them all plus banned the member.

    For the record, I am NOT happy to have Lebron on the Heat. And I'm getting on ordering that Artest Jersey. Not from any of these Spammers, though.

    Hi, vomito. Thanks for posting.

    When I said "we'll report you to Google", I was referring to sending an email to a friend who works in the web spam team. Your post makes it sound like you also work there. If so, perhaps you can shed some light on your Quality Guidelines. The Guidelines state:

    Don't participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank. In particular, avoid links to web spammers or "bad neighborhoods" on the web, as your own ranking may be affected adversely by those links.
    If that's the case, wouldn't spamming our site be considered a link scheme?

    Vomito, I am confused by your post. If you feel this way about spammers, please explain the Private Message you sent me regarding your 'friend' that I banned yesterday. You asked for a second chance for him. Why is that if you feel all spammers should be banned?

    I wrote about JC Penny getting caught doing this, and now they're very low in the search order.

    Exactly... they think they are so clever. But I have been doing this long enough that I know how they all work. You get the spam bots, the ones who post a couple of times then put one in, or the lurkers with their links... and links are always removed...
