Hey all, JBWM here.
By the by, JBWM or Joe Bonamassa's Web Master is a title I inherited when I started here about 4 years ago. My name is Scott and I'm Joe's Digital Marketing Director. That's a fancy way of saying that I handle his Social stuff and any ads that end up on a screen, including JBonamassa.com ..speaking of which, we're finally doing some major changes to. James Ross Advertising is a design firm we're good buddies with that's helping us modernize our sites. We know the forum is hallowed ground, and don't want to make many changes over here, but we intend to give it the same love our new site is getting. I just made them an admin yesterday to make sure that they check how "responsive" the forums are, which is a fancy way of ensuring it will work well now and in the future for modern phones, tablets, wrist communicator devices, digital eye-implants, neuro-telepathy, and any other technologies known or unknown.
With that said, JamesRossAdvertising is cool. Chances are you'll never see a post from them. They just wanted to look under the hood.
Thanks, and Rock On,

i just saw this older post. the irony of it being left right before JBWM's post is almost killing me.....if they delete it i'll remove this quote of it
anyway I wanted to let other users to know that the new mod added is legit even though his user name looks exactly like spam
I've sent comments to the office about reported spam not being deleted right off so hopefully they are getting notification of when we report a thread or looking into it. even with a bot preventer type thing i guess it doesn't prevent non-bot produced spam. they have literally taunted us here before letting us know they are not all bots, or whatever the proper terminology is. i am sure the bot preventer thing helps with the massive spam loads left all over at once though. the system we have with the post reporting and a short reply post helps prevent excessive reporting so until otherwise instructed by those officially designated i guess that is still the best protocol, well along with directly emailing Eric as he noted above if it persists.
