And the thing is only a small minority of these spammers bother coming back once they've got their spam posted to read these PMs.
i totally get what you're saying here but i think johne has a valid point with the idea of displaying the terms before joining. although from what i remember that already happens. maybe just a terms for dummies version with the main points in bold, especially the ones that hit a grey area (like myspace links in their sig)

maybe something like:

1 - single word posts are frowned upon
2 - making 15 posts as fast as possible so you can drop a link in your 16th then not posting again that day will get your account deleted.
3 - don't put a link in your signature until you've bookmarked the site and made it part of your regular surfing routine.

If someone is registering just to spam/advertise they're just going to look at that and keep going.

ok this post used to be a big long rant but that does no good to nobody.

so i'm just going to shut up and keep posting about music.

i'll wait for my 50th post before i even think about posting a youtube video again, just so nobody else accuses me of being a spammer

I actually know a spammer in real life. My boss at work got banned from ****ign facebook for spamming her moronic book tour on every group she joined.

She joined groups just to promote her ****. I can tell you right now, spammers are folks how have an agenda and its not suitable to ours.

see there's a fine line between promotion and being a general sh*thead. if you're going to access media with a large viewership and divert attention for an ulterior purpose you're much better off taking an advertisement out of a paper.

i just don't understand how these spammers are able to justify being complete c*nts. do those extra one or two listens matter enough for them to abandon respect for others?
