Guest spammer 'ot61p4a9ac' is alerting us to the dreadful spam state of 'ql61i4'.
They cannot describe their spamming situation in words anymore, and have resorted to encrypting all their messages into the included drivel, thus hoping to escape their local spam-police. I guess it says 'help, help, I'm melting!'

I used to watch a lot of Clint Eastwood movies back in the days.

However, for some reason I cannot remember too many.

I just remember Clint Eastwood for some reason.

Posting generic praise in a three year old dead thread looks fishy to me.

Hmm...lots (8) of junk posts today, no content in any of them, and all by unregistered guests.

Some limit to posting empty garbage could perhaps be in place?
(As well as spellchecks, if no words pass, it's probably junk)

Typical example:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20695

All eight are in 'get games to work' and 'find old games' forums.

Four more of the empty/dummy posts appeared, so far.
Same forums as before, plus in the 'Game, Hep Hints and Tips' forum.

I guess such posts are just intended to fill the forums with garbage, so...any competitors?

Not gonna happen. Most (if not all) of the admins on here have been with the crew for at least 15 years. The mods are also well-standing users that have been with us for a few years now. The team consists of users who have shown that they are mature and competent and (mostly) post things that are relevant and benefit the conversations at-hand.

Thank you Wardrich for the kind reply.

I guess I'm gonna have to be the king of programming Borland tools:
Borland C++ 2.0 and Borland Turbo Assembler 2.51

Guest spam from 'sergantsochi', offering his services, at least in readable cyrillic form.
The service might have fit in the hardware section, but no spammers can read anyway.
