    Programming Question Help
    Hey dude,

    You should ask your programming questions at likeplum. I always get good answers their to my programming issues and questions.

    Just thought I would let you know,
    -Jack"

    I was about to go to the website to check it out when I noticed the guy was banned. I'm assuming he was just some sort of bot advertisement.
    Can anybody give me any insight on the topic?

    Thanks!
    -Henray

    We've been getting a rather persistent PM spammer and several accounts have been banned. In future, please use the "Report" button /!\ below the PM to bring it to the attention of a moderator.

    I've removed the link from your post as that affords exactly the kind of publicity these cheapies are seeking.
