A contest!
Everyone knows how irritating it is to see topics get spammed. Here's a chance to have a little fun with it:

phpBB has a "word censor" feature. Basically this means any time you attempt to make a post that contains a word or a phrase it will substitute what you choose instead of that word (basically it's search and replace).

So, for instance, I have substituted the word "bunnies" for "free online texas holdem"

So, here's the contest: Post your substitution candidates here. I will make the substitutions (within reason, since remember that the word swapping takes effect over ALL posts). An official "entry" into the contest takes place when your substitution successfully traps a spam message and turns it into something else, hopefully something clever and entertaining.

In the cases where mulitple people try for the same word phrase, first come first served, until it works, at which point the new candidate is swapped in.

I hope this makes sense. I also reserve the right to think this is a bad idea and end the contest at any time....

"Mac 'n' Cheese" instead of "online perscriptions" and just leave the word "free" like it is. . .

I want a "free Mac 'n' Cheese"

Never let pain stop you from doing something you want. . . Never let pride stop you from doing something you should.

Replacements:

"Viagra" with "jive"

"supplements" with "faerie dust"

"To find out more" with "In the event of literal explosive diarrhea"

CAUTION: Over the weekend, a short psychic escaped from police custody.
He is to be considered a small medium at large.

The problem with that is that "free" is a semi common word that non-spambots might use from time to time.

Pray to the God that you don't quite believe in
To bless this fleeting moment
Yeah, YEAH, YEAH!

I guess you can considering this "testing"
Wait, so if I type "free online texas holdem" it'll say "bunnies" instead? How come you were able to type "free online Texas holdem" right up there?
