Some websites have unlimited traffic from the host. Others have limited uploads and downloads: e.g. 3000 GB/month. If the limit is exceeded, there is a surcharge to reopen the website. This has never happened before here that I have seen. By examining topic statistics, the owner can discover which were getting high traffic. My personal recommendation is that the administrator delete all those posts which were using this website as a sleazy advertising venue, which is a violation of the user agreement. If that is were the traffic was generated, it should lower the volume to actual discussions.

Ask for advice on the forum. This site is offline.

The website is NOT offline as the post above suggests, obviously. Never click on blue line links or gambling sites, it is a scam. We should give zero clicks to advertisers.

We've upgraded the forum software, though there may still be some kinks to work out. Specific suggestions for improvement are welcome! โปรโมชั่น คาสิโน

This is attempted spoofing/impersonation of the site administrator. Do not click on the link.

What is happening to the forums is that they are being taken over by advertisers and scammers. As I recall, it began with kitchen remodeling, and has progressed to:
Term paper/thesis writing services for students.
On-line casinos.
On-line bookie/sports-betting.
Porn/escort-services.
Other questionable sites.

When you are logged in, you can report a post for using this website as an advertising venue. [1] I have done this repeatedly, but have never received a response from the administrator, nor seen anything done in recent years to curtail the use of this website for advertising purposes.

You can get a report on any website from ScamAdviser. When viewing a post with a link:
press Control-U to view the html source;
scan down until you locate the actual url;
copy only the site name url (up to ".com", or whatever the last "." identifier is);
go to ScamAdviser.com;
paste the site url into the search box.

You can even do this for this website. The site administrator is David Blinder, Marilyn's son-in-law. So if you are wondering why all this sleazy activity is happening here, Marilyn is ultimately responsible.
