              The spammers have honed in on Table Manners, FYI.

                  It's always this poster. Can't he/she be banned? http://www.chow.com/profile/1150331

                    He's back in the same thread. I think he changes the number after his name or the name a little bit each time, creating a corresponding email address to go with it. So frustrating.

                      The eternal question: what in the world good does it do? Has a single Chowhound ever been anything other than pissed off by those ads? I bet not.

                      There's got to be a way to block any post with the URL in it then: www.maidi2008.com

                      I know on my blog I can block commenters by keywords (e.g. viagra).

                        And he's back on the Special Dishes Secret Prices thread. I want the mods to conquer the little twit!
