typically ANY 'new-ish' poster that has a link on thier post, you can ASSUME they are a spammer. NEVER click on a link from someone we don't 'know' ... just an fyi.

Is there no one assigned to removing spam posts? How awful would it be if, after googling dog ear ailments, came upon this thread and instead of taking a pet to the vet, bought this quack book and neglected to treat a serious ear condition promptly? I'm sure there are people daily who don't know such posts are spam. If they're allowed to remain, the very least we can do as dog lovers, is hold their feet to the fire. After all, I see it as our civic responsibility, but would certainly prefer such posts be removed and spam posters be banned.

YES there are people, our moderators, that WILL take these posts down and ban the spammers, BUT they are generously volunteering thier time, have jobs and families and will find time to check the forum when they can!
I alerted them already about these spam posts...

That's good to know . . .i reported them too, but after 12 hours and they're still here, thought maybe the report might have been swallowed up by the cyberbots

Yes there are people who remove spam. And all YOU need to do when you see one is click the little exclamation point on the left side of the screen!

Don't be so sure... There ARE viruses that infect Macs too (and I am a totally Apple person). In fact, I was told at the Apple store recently, that although it's rare, viruses can even find their way into iPads. So we aren't TOTALLY immune. I would NEVER click a link from an unknown source!

I spent the first three years in the vets office due to Hank's ear infections. Finally I found a vet who said the infections were probably allergy related. I changed his food to Kirkland (Costco) brand four years ago and he's only had one infection in that time.
