As such, you may be liable for any injuries/damages or adverse drug reactions which may have been caused to patients acquiring the medicine via your forum.

    Really interesting info and a good reason to shut down a forum if you can no longer support or police it.

    But you see, they still have your email address, though you have left the forum two years ago ... :)
    [P.S. unfortunately Boehringer Ingelheim is a German company :(:p]

    If it's yours, what software is it? I would suggest cleaning all the spam up and either turning the forum off, or turning posting off!

    Also you may want to download some ainti spam plugins!

    If the forum is however big and for sale - pm me!
