Could set it so newly signed up members cannot start new threads until they have 10 posts under their belt, and the first 5 posts or so they cannot post any links. And maybe the very first one or two posts must be reviewed and approved before it shows up. Otherwise it's too easy for spam to come through.
It happens on any forum that has traffic. Some forums make it harder to spam, which in turn puts on some restrictions on new members, as I have suggested above. Other forums do not allow links in your posts 'till you get some 20 posts or so without getting yourself in any kind of trouble. And they have a limit on how many posts you can place on a certain period of time.
Spammers monitor their target sites and when they see that they can repeatedly garner success on a specific site, they keep hitting it with minor variations (sometimes just an ID change). They often also "sell" their list to other spammers. So, in order to control most implement the volume restrictions others have pointed out.
"Has anybody found the random BS thread yet? I mean, I know a lot of these threads are getting way off topic as to be expected but where does one go to just post funny or random BS? The daily funny page section I suppose? Please tag me to it lol"
I FOUND IT, Bobbyd!
I bought a 14" Portland electric chainsaw at Harbor Freight a couple of years ago. I went up to get a new cutting chain. They do not carry chains and said I would have to order it on line. I can't find anything on line and the store is no help. Anyone have any ideas?

If your bike is "totalled" for cosmetic damage, do you keep it?
I might be in this situation soon since I decided to go the insurance route with my little incident in July.
It's all bolt on cosmetic damage but all that stuff adds up especially the plastic parts.
Just curious if anyone has gone...
