    If you're referring to someone on here, it's basically someone who has a high post count for example but just posts about crap all the time, like would answer threads and say "sorry I don't know" instead of just not replying at all... but doing it like alll the time.

    Or if you mean spam as in spamming email.. it's the email that gets sent about viagra and stuff that ends up in your junk mail folder.

    That's why people mock kimbo and call her a spammer... having a laugh that she posts a lot and posts about crap. Which I don't think she does of course but it's just ppl mocking her :)

    A spammer is someone who posts as many links to a website as possible on as many websites as they can, to promote a website or business. Usually porn, viagra or willy extensions :lol:

    They are sometimes paid per click and can trace back to which websites get them the most hits, which is why you should never click any links posted as it just flags this website as an easy target.

    They're also the buggers that buy lists of email addresses and why you get spam-emails.

    They are the scum of the virtual world :x

    it is one of those things that I never really knew what one was, thanks for that. I think that someone had mentioned that that nasty boy, Liam, on BB was a spammer.

    Yeah from what I can gather about his "e-marketing" business that he's said about, its probably a big part of it....and seeing what a little sex-addict he is, probably most of the porn we get posted on here :rotfl:

    If it was an email attachment, it could have had a virus or spyware attached to it that has installed itself without your knowledge. Although spyware is much more prevalent these days than viruses. It does slow the system down loads.

    Do you have up to date virus and spyware protection?
