    Didja ever look at some of the names/monikers in that big block of these at the bottom of the main forums page? Lots of them look like some "users" simply let their pets run across the keyboard for these "names".

    That's about right for the bottom of the page while within a paticular thread, like this.

    Go to the MAIN forums page, where ALL the forums ae listed.

    They are spam bots. For a while us Mods were trying to delete them before they could post but trying to keep up was exhausting, so I gave up and now I only delete/ban the ones who post.

    Kinda like trying to dig a hole in dry sand with a teaspoon in a stiff wind, eh?
