95% of the posts are pure spam from beggining to end. :lol:

Just take a look around. It's nicely designed but the posters are all spammers. Wonder what the odds of that happening are? :?

Lol. The only reason why the percentage is so high is because there are hardly any replies to the topics. see the match of the day topic? had like 8 posts and no replies to any of them..

Just makes you wonder.. how did this forum start out?? Because when a forum starts.. when there is hardly any people.. you just get bored etc..musta been hard.

I have no idea as to why every single member who signs up there is a spammer. a FRICKIN SPAMMER! Well, thats assuming that every member there does not have multiple accounts. BUT ITS FRICKIN SPAM! I dunno but I think the mods spam their own site. Maybe even the admins. That is so sad. :lol:

100% if you don't have a secure sign up/log-in system. All of that spam is made using "robots" or scripts designed to exploit holes within the forum itself. In a way, it's hacking for profit. The spammers we get on EF are more pathetic, they do it by hand.
