Last December I purchased a colour laser printer
to dispense with ink jet and its many problems.

Thinking ahead I posted here asking for experiences refilling toner units.

Yesterday[ 9 months on] I Googled for toner refill suppliers and looked at many ,and e-mailed a couple for further detail.

In Today's posts I received a response to the original post

Plainly Spam -
But how did they cotton on to me- my original post to PCA and then yesterdays Googling?

Jack you have a good point! BUT i suppose FE (Peter) has only so many things he can do in one day! its a HUGE website to modderate im sure! & im sure he's not the only modderator as its so time consuming!

Let FE know about this spam he does also need us to make him aware in case anything has slipped through the net! i have noticed just recently they has been a lot of spam! something about camgirls the other day then one a few days before.? i take my hat of to peter i modderate a conservative website & i know how damn demanding it is! & i DONT have a forum "Yet" its VERY hard work! i can tell you!! & the thing is peter dont just do this job i belive!

They did what you did - they used Google.

The spam has gone from your thread now.

On ball as usual.
Good old Google perhaps it is owned by the Mafia/Chinese Government/ some other underworld org.
