Kimmy, this has always been a problem. I have not seen a change.
I report spam posts and the forum administrators (Charles/Greg et al) eventually deal with it.
MLW is a small space on the Internet. And guys (not women) run it.
IOW, sometimes there's clutter, and sometimes on MLW people drink straight from the bottle without a glass.
