They've been showing up almost every night lately. More in recent days than I remember.

Mods slap 'em down by daylight, but that still gives them a few hours to rook new victims. Hopefully most people here are smart enough not to fall for them, but there's always a few who might get snookered.
Help stamp out Twits and Twitterers!

Examples? Links?
Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

They're already deleted so a link would do no good.

I assume he's referring to those electronics threads that get started all the time listing 100 different types of cell phones and gadgets at "unheard of prices" if you click the link... that inevitably leads to a virus, trojan or credit card thief.

Posted Image works most of the time. That will bring it to our attention.

In fact my fellow moderators have been doing a great job of getting rid of that spam pretty quickly, and they deserve credit.

I must agree - you guys do a great job on this. It's very rare that I see spam on this site.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.
