    Hi guys,
    as you've noticed spammers are targeting this forum.
    These are not bots.
    These are human spammers.
    And these spammers, being human, are more clever than a bot - since unfortunately, we are at least some years away from a technological singularity. Maybe you didn't notice, but their modus operandi consists in making a normal post, so not to be identified as spammers - and then start spamming, right after a few posts.
    To fight these spammers we are enforcing a new policy.
    From now on, links to non-technical stuff in the signature are forbidden.
    What counts as non-technical stuff? Well, I'd say: let's use common sense.
