Mark, Tom... is it at all possible to make an exception to your "no moderation" policy and delete this account? Maybe also report this crap to his ISP? Ignoring him won't help, spammers don't read replies anyway.
If anyone ever thought i overstep mark and tom's wishes and do anything on this site on my own, this is proof I do not. I would have deleted this account, band his ip and removed all the messages.
Come on mark or tom - please. It will only get worse.

Rather than just lambast this moron, thereby piquing curiosity (yeah, yeah, I'm an moron), let's explain what this wad is trying to do. As can be clearly seen from his inept url linking, he's linking to outwar.com, which is running a "game" encouraging players to make people to visit the outwar.com site, with hits counting towards the player's score. Clicking on foofighter1976's link, in essence, gives him more points.
What is Outwar? At outwar.com you can create a monster, a gangster, or a pop star and build their fame, power, and riches. Once you create your character, you build them by getting friends to click your secret link. The more people you get to click the link, the more money your character will generate. Attack other players for money, band together with friend, even gamble at the casino. The players with the most money at the end of the game win, this is an all out war!
The current game started on Tuesday, April 1 and will end Wednesday, April 30 at 12 Midnight.
Not only is he tricking people to visit a worthless site, he is cheating per the game's own Anti-Spam Policy (http://www.outwar.com/spampolicy.php) which reads, in part: "Outwar prohibits its members from using spam and other forms of Internet abuse to gain character power. Spam is defined as including, but not limited to, the following...Messages posted to Usenet and message boards that are off-topic (unrelated to the topic of discussion), cross-posted to unrelated newsgroups, or posted in excessive volume."
foofighter1976's in-game name is i8erout, and although I doubt it will do much good, here's the link to report him as a spammer (http://www.outwar.com/reportspam.php?id=706018).
While we could hope this loser will stop posting here after the end of the game, I'd bet that a new round will start May 1st, so we'll get more of his cheating, lying, off-topic crap.

Chet, you're the most talented thug I've seen in a long time.
