He only exists 'cos Dave Brown is busy these days.
The problem will be eradicated as soon as he sees it.

Is it spam? - he is promoting tropical plants rather than trying to sell viagra. He has went overboard with it though.

I had noticed one post, and chose to ignore it as no links were given, but the fact the same words have been copied and pasted into multiple post comes into spamming bracket. Also no other posting has been made, so all posts have been removed.

Obviously only on here to advertise his ebay sales :(
Best regards
Dave

When you guys want a spammer problem to be resolved quickly, you may want to post links to the offending posts or the spammer's profile to spare Dave the hassle of figuring out what / who you're talking about.

Yes the ! report button was used so it went direct to Dave/Aiden. I started this topic in an attempt to make it aware to the spammer that he was overdoing it and so other knew about it.

I bought one on best offer. The chap selling them is an amateur gardener who could not get those giant aroids in the UK so bought some from the US. He was offered a discount for a job lot but got stung for courier and import duties. They are in a 1 litre pot and while cut back are growing and should grow away this year.

The swaps forum is the place to say "I have something to swap or sell", not a one liner pasted onto many Colocasia discussion topics in public forums. :wink:
