    I am getting a bit sick of people hitting the site and posting how great they are and to visit their site or blog to see and then they never post again.
    Now I understand that the more links back your site the higher your page ranking can get on some search engines, but come on.... Why do those of us who participate in the forum have to read a bunch of posts that could only be considered spam so you can drum up some business for your site.
    If you need to increase your page rank, try doing it by enhancing the photo community and participating in the forums rather than just spamming and leaving.
    Thanks for listening.

    Report it as spam and it will be deleted.

    Whenever I see those posts - I report them.

    psst James your first link is not working - I think you need to double check it ;)

    As for the sorts of person your mentioning - sometimes people do sign up to places and then fall away for legitimate reasons (I know I have fallen silent on some places I registered to since I run out of time to visit and then my need for that area falls away or I move onto something else).

    I am talking about photographers who create a profile and then post in 1-5 sections to check out their site and then never post again.

    I can understand fading away from a forum, but I am talking about hit and Run posters. I know mods will delete the posts, but does anyone think that this works in an active community? And if they are resorting to spamming to draw people to their site are they really as good as they think they are.
