This is noxious spam, and moderators cannot give an infraction. If this was a normal post, I would ban the member in a second. This bot DOES NOT deserve protected Vendor status.

I will continue deleting the threads as I see them.

Wiseguide.com is one of our companies accounts. The only section it will be posting in is the vendor deals section of the site. The account does have mod status in case they need to edit something but the likeliness of them logging into the forum to do so it very low. They use a mass post tool (we use it to announce things to staff and the community) so they would likely edit through there.

If they just advertise aquarium related stuff I doubt that any of us would object, but what they did advertise was stuff for all pets.

It wasn't even pet stuff. There's watches, chairs, vacuums, etc....

Exactly! If any of it had been even vaguely aquarium related it might have been tolerable.

I thought I saw pet goods when I looked at it, and I didn't look very far into it. It really doesn't belong here.

The first spam post had pet items, the second was all household items.
