SPAM WILL BE DELETED

Given the amount of SPAM that gets posted here from time to time (todays attempt from a persistent bugger is the driving force behind this post - No we don't want to buy GUCCI knockoffs!)

From http://www.chockstone.org/Forum/Forum.asp?Action=Help&Topic=SPAM

SPAM

Outright SPAM and/or posts containing nothing but links to retail web sites. The Chockstone forum is not a vehicle for unpaid advertising material. If you run a climbing related web site and would like to be included on the Links page, simply email Chockstone. It is often necessary to provide a link to a commercial site, for the purposes of illustrating a point, or bringing useful information to the attention of forum members. The line between this and SPAM is grey, but basically Chockstone reserves the right to delete posts purely looking to harness the forum for their own free marketing.

Reasons for objecting to SPAM on Chockstone:
1. The thought of a commercial party stealing profit directly from what amounts to endless hours of work that has gone into creating and maintaining this resource, on the part of myself, contributors of articles, interviewees, photographers, reviewers, guide publishers and forum members, all of whom gave freely of their time. SPAMer's are thieves in the same way that burglars are.
2. SPAM is illegal in this country. If an Australian company sends you a SPAM email that you did not "opt in" to receive, said company is acting illegally and can be fined millions. This is how seriously SPAM is taken.
3. SPAM is annoying and ugly. I have pride in Chockstone. I know it's not a master painting or something, but it's still art to me.
4. We have one sponsor that pays the site's hosting fees. It would be bad form to advertise competitors to this sponsor.

You're pulling my leg, no? Captchas are commonly used in online forums to prevent spam postings. The link I gave is one of 50 gazillion explanations on the web.

I alway feel a pang of guilt having to delete your witty retorts to delete the spam. Maybe I could copy your posts and transfer them to here for prosperity?
