For this forum's purposes, spamming is defined as posting nearly identical messages in 2 or more threads. It is OK to repeat information as long as you ARE responding to a member.
Spamming via the Private Message system will be reason enough for a member to be banned for this community. This includes new members who go to the PM system right after registering a stay on there for over 30 minutes. We will just assume that they are posting spam or links.
