    I started getting this a few days ago. No other pages I visit display like this. Anyone else getting it?

    Yes, happens everyday here.
    Best options i was taught was to click on the poster’s bio and click “ignore” and then refresh the page. And they’ll all disappear. Until they post under a new user name.

    That's the problem of making Gretsches in Asia, now thy want their space. Remember they are more than us. So we are the few :D

    Ignoring that a-hole doesn't seem to help. Can't we just nuke him?

    Posting under two different names today. The bots are getting smarter.

    I've pretty much stopped visiting the forums, it's too much of a hassle to constantly hide these posts.

    Really? Bummer.

    Hey, how's things in Sydney? Not been over for years but last time I was there I went to a guitar shop on Parramatta Road. Had some nice stuff in there.

    Hitting refresh doesn't seem to work for me. I report the spam, ignore the poster, check out, then when I check back in, the spam is gone. It's not that big of a problem. Annoying and pointless, yes, but life's got a lot of things that are worse.

    Just log out and come back in another day or two.
    The guys here are great at sweeping out the trash.
    But I'll agree it's really a big pain in the but-tocks.
