Hi All, I am from Melbourne, Australia. I am retired and am interested in prepping but have not started in any way, just accumulating knowledge.
I have enjoyed bushwalking, camping and fishing for many years.

Good day, Digout!  Spent a month in Australia back in high school.   :o  Holy crap, nearly 25 years ago...  Welcome aboard, mate!

The latest one has been posting earplug spam on dozens of other forums. 8)

I'm still waiting for fish feed making machine spam from a particular new member.  I do rather enjoy the hunt. ;D

 :rofl:

Yes. I was mod on a couple of forums. I agree the hunt was fun.
And when you stated the reason for the ban (V-bulletin) that they could read, making up that statement was fun....something like..........die $#@$ spammer die.  ;D

Okay, this is the Intro Thread and I don't want to sound vicious...

Hello, new members!  Welcome to The Survival Podcast Forum.  Unless you're a spammer.

Currently, about half of the new members who register here are spammers.  (That doesn't count all the others who were weeded out by automated techniques before they could register!)

We do check out newly-registered members manually, using several methods which I won't list here for obvious reasons.  We've been doing this for a long time and we usually get it right, but if you're not a spammer and you got banned anyway, I do apologize.  When you try to log in, you'll see an e-mail address that you can contact, and we'll try to fix our error.

Tor users: We try really hard not to ban Tor exit node IP addresses, even if they're being heavily abused by spammers (which is usually the case!).  If you run into a problem using Tor here, let us know.
