This spam is sent out by various blaster programs you can buy, quite a few specifically for forum blasting. So believe me their not targeting coffee folk lol, their literally blasting this to thousands of other forums.

Sad part is they'll keep doing it b/c it must be working with whatever idiots actually sending them money

It was really in the nature of a rhetorical question. I'm all too well aware of script kiddie antics.

There's really not a lot of point to posting blatant spams here.  If one of us is on line, we will see it and take action.  If we aren't on line, we won't see posts here anyway.

OTOH, commercial posts that someone tries to sneak into a discussion thread are good candidates.  I don't personally read all threads.  Not sure about other mods.

Yep, i am zoning in on the commercial posts trying to sneak in, and those posting inappropriately on the BST.
Lately, the influx of spamming/fake id's has been overwhelming, and craig, Ian, and other mods have been all over it, as much as humanly possible.
I've been somewhat out of commission a few days.
We're doing the best we can to make the experience here as rewarding as possible. Fortunately the GREAT majority here are terrific posters.

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Yaaaay Craig!  Thanks very much!  I should have known one of you guys would be all over that without a notice from one of us regulars.
