Just been browsing through the member list...

Woah, there's some weird websites listed to folks with 0 posts!

"photo gay"
"car washing supplies"
"concrete saw"
"natural acne treatment"
"syracuse funeral homes"

There really is no corner of the internet where some slimy spammer hasn't tried to put his greasy mitts all over it. Hanging is too good for them...

I think they as well be edited out completely. Wipe them off!

Hmm, yes. The anti-spam systems are supposed to stop most of these, but there are indeed quite a lot. Time for spring cleaning!

I really wish there were not incentive to spam everything... :(

HA HA! funny.

I have only seen porn posted here once. I was more bothered that it was run of the mill, rather than some kind of niche porn. TG should get fetish spam for sure since it is niche soft in 3D (relative to general 3d).

I would think masochistic at least  ;D ;D

Alright, update: several thousand spam profiles have been removed, woohoo! To be clear none of these had actual spam posts, mostly they just had various kinds of spam hidden in their profiles, either in the signature, the website URL field, or the "personal text" field. But good riddance regardless, and hopefully we can continue to keep the majority out in the future.

Now, if we could just mulch the spammers and make biodiesel I think we could solve the energy crisis, maybe...
