Re: This is kind of maddening...


With multiple spam posts the first order is to hide them from public view, ban the user and then move the posts to the trash. There are actually 7,239 posts here with an average of 14 hidden per page out of the over 40 pages listed.

Perhaps another forum might be better for the crap posts as this forum was originally intended for "Signature/ BBCode Tests and Such".

Oh yes, from here Global Admins decide if the offenders deserve exile.

The last one was a Nigerian scammer trying to pass himself off as a Brit. He also forgot to have someone proofread his spam before he posted it 200 or more times around the internet. emoticon

Re: This is kind of maddening...


When I spot spam I hide it. That much I know is within a mods ability and doesn't cross any lines procedure wise. I know I could also move it but that takes away a posting trail the admins might like to see first...

That's why I add "Moved From" otherwise they will have to take the time to move them instead of the larger issues that are beyond the abilities of mere mortals. emoticon

Re: This is kind of maddening...


Just looking at the subject lines and times through the spammer's profile made it obvious with the last one. Even so, I know I can check the Trash if the posts have been moved, so feel free to move them.

It might be good to have a separate forum for stashing spam posts like VG mentioned, but it's kinda fun driving people like Jason nuts trying to figure out where the post went. emoticon
