Speculation on my part, I wonder if the oriental font could be converted to "SPACE"? In effect, making these SPAM posting into blanks.

Ok, upped the mark required to pass the anti-spammer test, and also added recaptcha to the registration page.

We'll get 'em eventually!

Since they were hawking false documents, perhaps we should bought an arrest warrant for them?

Another day of hundreds of spam posts :( This is making finding valid new posts difficult.

The admin doesn't seem capable of stopping this which is discouraging me from continuing to participate in this forum. I don't want to continue participating in the i3 Facebook group due to Facebook's unacceptable behaviors.

I'm interested in discussions of i3 problems and modifications but not so interested in "social" posts. I also want a forum with a good search capability. Is there another i3 forum that you feel is worth joining?

This is a very informative forum and it is a shame that spammers are here. Although, I was looking at getting a diploma from the University of Mars :)

Perhaps a fee based forum would help weed out the spammers. I am not talking about a lot, maybe a dollar or something small that would make them go spam elsewhere???

There's an i3 "subreddit" on Reddit: http://reddit.com/bmwi3

It's not as active as here, but it gets a few posts a day.

Spam messages are flooding in again while the spam messages from yesterday remain. I reported one of the spam messages yesterday which should have sent a message to the admin, but nothing has been done. The admin must not be paying attention and must not care much.
