Kitchen sales people need this Dan, not a toy!

The Minigun is a machine gun designed by the General Electric Company and produced by many other companies around the world. It is a multi-barreled rotating gun similar to the Gatling gun used in the late 1800s and early 1900s (most guns of this type are still usually referred to as Gatling guns).

The term "minigun" is used because of its smaller size as compared other types of Gatling-style guns. The original M-134, first produced in 1963, is based on the G.E 20mm M61 Vulcan Cannon and is scaled down to 7.62mm.

Hoss. I've deleted at least a dozen posts from this Michaek Kors guy. Can you nail this clown via his url?

Almost makes me want to ask, are people getting paid for spamming sites with ads? Seems a real spate of it right now?

More than likely it will be a spam bot or 3. All automated. Get Kev to stick a question in the registration along the lines of what is 5 +3. Most spambots get confuddled by that and can't register.

What's the point in a spam bot though?

A spam bot is a bit of code. The aim to register and post on forums lots of lovely spam. The idea being exactly the same as email spam. A bit of code can spam a lot of sites in the time it'd take you or I to spam one or two. I guess it only take a couple of idiots to click through to make it worth their while.

I keep getting adverts appearing in the bottom right corner of my screen - aorund one every three minutes. Are they something to do with the site or have I done something I shouldn't? If so, anyone know how I make them stop? :conf:
