Those Weird Medical(?) Ads in the Forum

I hope that I'm not getting at a touchy subject here, but I wanted to at least bring up those unwanted posts that appear on this forum from time to time. I know that I'm not the only one who has seen them appear. I just find it annoying that whoever/whatever is making these unwanted posts just to place some crappy commercialized post about taking these pills for that, and other such nonsense. So, I just felt the need to ask this question:

Who the heck are these goobers and why are they doing this on the GG Server? Is all that just for getting some sick thrill or something? :|

Please make any replies that you feel like contributing to this post. This is just something I personally felt that needed to be addressed.

Nah, AdBlock won't get rid of them, they're threads posted by spambots. Most people won't see them because I remove them as soon as I see them.

These spambots seem to come back like cockroaches, and getting weirder all the time. Our "newest member" seems to be called "tacobellpartybox". If that isn't a spambot, then what else is new? Just in case tacobellpartybox is an actual person and not a bot, my apologies in advance. I'm just one of the umpteen members here on GG that get annoyed by these spambots. :|

Until they post spam, I will ignore them. We can't just go off half cocked because the name is dumb, lol.
