    They left the first couple so now it's free reign.

    It isn't for our consumption. Once it is up they just keep requesting google et al to re-crawler the site so they reinforce their key words to their link address.
    This will continue until the google algorithm decides it sees the repetitions and marks us as 'unsafe' and then you can't be found even by people searching on 'our' words.

    Give the bastard a downvote as well - three and the post cannot be read. I have gone through and given a couple of hundred downvotes - been through and downvoted them all.

    Not sure if that will achieve anything ....

    I still think spammers should be kicked off, non forum members must be thinking WTF when they browse the site.

    If a single post receives the three downvotes then the message narrative disappears from view. I don't normally give downvotes but have to do something to defend the forum against an enemy.

    Not sure why you received a downvote unless someone teasing you !

    Sometimes it can be a mistake as the Downvote is near the edge of the screen on mobiles and can be accidentally clicked during scrolling.

    If that’s me, my bad. Didn’t think it was good etiquette to “Like” your son having issues with his lid and getting chinned off by the retailer....o_O

    Could only see the one dislike which I think meant he disliked how Infinity had treated you. Of course that may just be me being the nice guy and giving people the benefit of the doubt. If not just set @Lozzy on 'em :D
