    So, you want to spam linux.org do you? Before you click Create Thread let me tell you what will happen:
    1. Your post(s) will be uploaded.
    2. Someone notices the post(s) and marks them as spam
    3. A staff member of the site is notified of the post and uses the spam cleaner on your user account here on the forum.
    3a. Your IP is banned from the site
    3b. Your email account is banned from the site
    3c. Your post(s) are deleted from the site.
    4. I personally make sure your IP, email, and user account name are added to stopforumspam.com so you can't spam other sites.
    5. (optional) I laugh at you. A lot. And I chat with other staff members on other forums about your behavior.

    We, at linux.org, hate spammers. Take your crud somewhere else. Thanks.

    Why is it that spammers are always 18yo females? Is this some kind of conspiracy?

    Yep. They are out-of-control teens when their parents let them do whatever they want.
