I don't really know but I know why they are spamming... Just to get more Armor Points like if you post lots of comments you get points right? Thats the point of them spamming because they think they can spam and get away with it and get like 2000 AP from it... They will probably just drop points! Actually I know what we should do show a moderator the spam and tell the moderator to drop there points back to where they were and maybe even lower just like SwitchFoot but he posted porn! And I think got banned... What happened to him anyways I think he got hacked and someone did that to his profile because that person might not have liked him... I don't know just a guess because he was so nice and intelligent so why would he do that... Maybe thats not the case but who cares... I got off topic lol... :D

You know, I can't help but think that a certain quasi-apocalyptic AG event directly preceded the explosion of spammers...

I could be subject to reporting bias...but I'm not going to imply anything.

Ah heck, since Karoc mentioned Switchfoot, I think that possibly the AG mindset shifted slightly when Switchfoot left.

Sigh. It happens a lot. People get used to it, join them, or leave. Remember. The red flag is your friend. Just don't abuse it...

this is like the only website were it rewards you for each forum post-1AP
people spam just to get some points, altho they probably get more taken away then they gain....
