In the Off-Topic forum: http://www.fitday.com/fitness/forums...n-company.html

Also, member Whodajpaa seems to be posting text articles from other websites onto the forums -- there are a couple in the Weight Loss Tips forum and a couple spread out in other places.

There aren't any links or spam that I can see, so I don't know if it's ok or not. I just often don't like seeing text that seems to be copy/pasted from elsewhere without proper crediting

Yah, I've been on the fence about whether to bring that one up, too. Thanks, Terri. And thanks, Mike, ever-vigilant!

Almost all the way down the page, there's a link to a blog...but it's not like the normal member blogs you see here. Not sure if it's spam, but it's annoying.

Weigh 115lbs and STILL fat?

This poster's put up three posts tonight that contain some sort of copied info; they seem to be only put up so s/he can advertise the Rosetta Stone stuff in the signature?

Yeah, I whacked them a couple times myself. This seems to be a pretty common tactic to make a bunch of posts that are somewhat on topic, then start adding spam links. Sneaky spammers really annoy me!

Yep I believe the member is at 9 posts, if they continue to post without removing the link then I'll remove it... The only way I know how.
