I don't see anything particularly wrong with RankHaven's posts. I suppose this thread has pretty much run its course, so I'll close it now. RankHaven's posts seem fine but it has been a magnet in the past.
Regarding spam elsewhere on the boards, I apologize. We get a lot of it. We have automated systems that do their best to take care of it, and when I'm in the office I try to kill things as quickly as I am able. We appreciate your help in reporting posts, but if you feel pressured by the amount of spam we get, you do not need to put that pressure on yourself. We have a great mod team that is always on the look-out as well!
