It was noted yesterday. <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=432261" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=432261</a>(oh, and this really isn't a gameplay issue.  The thread yesterday was put in a better suited location to start.)

I know it's not gameplay related, but they got rid of the Message Board Issues forum a long time ago.

I'm going to go ahead and leave this here.  I just ask that everyone try to keep it to the already open threads, here, in the forum help and discussion section, and the one in the NGD.  Too many more than that will be a little hard to keep up with.Everyone is being awesome about making sure to PM me and I think I've gotten all of them so far.Make sure you let me know if you get anymore.  Thanks!!

<p>Well plat spammers are nothing more than rats and cockroaches looking for places to nest.  They've nearly been rooted out of EQ2 thanks to the filters so they are having to resort to drastic measures such as spamming on the forums.  </p><p>Just keep reportin those PMs to the forum admins and those little cockroaches will be stepped on and the rats on the other hand will be dealt with by "SNAP" traps.  Too bad EQ2 doesn't endorse public hangings like another forum I visit it would be good entertainment.  "Please visit" *DRop* *Snap/Crack/Pop* and just watch the feet dangle in the wind. <img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/908627bbe5e9f6a080977db8c365caff.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" /></p>

haha, I just got the mail and I love it. No, I don't buy plat or powerleveling services. I'd say about 10% of the gaming population visits the forum and they believe they will get better response from PMs on the forum than in game spam. It just goes to show you that SOE's efforts are working!
