I've noticed that paolo22 posts nothing but "Buy Fake Money", and other similar spam. Any chance you could get rid of them? Example post: forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=78142

Spammers can be quite annoying, like in this case, so I've perma-banned paolo22 and deleted all of the spam posts.

I hate spammers, especially those who comment on websites and forums. I don't know the solution of getting rids of them, if I disable comments section from my website how will I get feedback from users, its a big problem for me.

User Youxianai (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=315004) is a spammer. They just keep posting the same stuff in each thread:

forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79658
forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79657
forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79656
forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79655
forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79654
forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=79653

P.S.: Why is it that my links don't work if I click Preview before I post?

I've removed all the offending posts and banned the user. Thanks for reporting.

Not sure about why the links don't work in preview mode though. Sounds like a phpBB quirk.
