Dude, how does spam make a poor community? That's like saying peanut butter makes Reese's bad...the IVAN community is pretty much half-spam, half-IVAN chat. Spam is part of why this place feels so friendly. To get rid of the spam would be like taking away the fun of this place. If I wanted to come to a forum strictly for talk about a particular subject, I would go to the flippin government discussion forums or something. I hardly even play IVAN anymore, but I like hanging out with everyone around here, so why the heck would it be good to get rid of the spam? If you're so into this "Cold, strict" policy, why not make your own IVAN forums, strictly for talk only about IVAN? I don't mean to be mean or anything, but, damn, dude, chill with the strictness. It's just a game, it's not like we're discussing the end of the world here. Although we could do that, too, because we have spam forums. Oh, and if spam bothers you, DON'T READ IT.
Again, excuse me if I stepped out of line a bit by going off on this guy.
