I have reported 4 different postings that were advertising fake documentation for sale. Looks like the admins are taking them down.

No the Forum hasn’t been hijacked. A spammer temporarily made it through the filters. Thanks to all who reported it.

I figure since I get posts of mine deleted occasionally by the moderators (sometimes have a hard time not confronting certain dogmatic attitudes) I may as well help them out once in a while.

By all means don't hesitate to report suspicious looking posts like these.
The report helps us catch & correct the offenders sooner and protect TF.

THANKS
