SPAM icon next to username in posts
on: February 25, 2024, 03:30:32 PM
So I made a post a couple minutes ago, and I happened to notice a tiny little picture of a can of "SPAM" next to my username. Are my posts being marked as spam, and if so, is there a way to change that?

Not that your posts are spam. It is the country of origin ;) just change it to what country your from and it will fix that :D

No problem :salute: it was started years ago like this as a way to locate spam bots more efficiently but many thought it was funny (or didn't bother to change their country of origin ;) ) and kept their country as spamastan :D so it didn't work out as planned but I still find it funny :rofl:

I was wondering about that.  Every time I see that icon it makes me think, "Oh, spam sounds good for breakfast tomorrow."  LOL!
