Oh no, I wasn't implying that you did say that. But I am glad you understood what I was trying to say.

I think that if you moderate the forum proactively, you shouldn't have any problems. The only thing to remember is that Google/Microsoft search bots are constantly present on your site, so if they pick up links with bad rep from time to time before you have the chance to remove them, I don't know how that might affect your own site ranking.

PS: I just remembered something. I am going to privately email you a link to a little piece of code that will drastically lower spammers from signing up. It isn't likely anything that you are thinking of right now, but clever as hell and very effective.
