Why do we all of a sudden have spam threads?

The first thing I noticed today was "Hot Teen Pics".

Yeah, I reported it yet I notice it is still here which is a disappointment to see for my morning. (it is morning here in new Zealand.)

Rags is a volunteer with a real life, so he may not kill every bad post on sight or ban every crank poster instantly. That said, he's doing yeoman's work here as a solo act. Anyone that feels that moderation needs to be more proactive should volunteer to assist. The board is actually starting to grow a bit, so another moderator would be welcome.

Yes he is a volunteer. As for more proactive moderation I would have time for that given I am well, recovering from surgery and apparently it will take quite some time to heal from it.

PM Rags.  I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

I'd welcome Dave to help out.  Dan or webmaster is the one to bring it up with though. He is the owner of the site.

He isn't seemingly very active here so hope he does something about it so things are taken care of pretty quickly.

I'm not the best person for the job.  I'm off-line a lot, and don't expect that to change.  taramarie might be a better choice.  She can certainly kill the porn and advertising threads (and bar their posters) without having to set policy on the site.  That's probably better if more closely held anyway.

Yes just the advertising and porn threads. They don't belong here.

Loads of spam threads yet again and I am here, but unable to get rid of them which I could do if a moderator. I come here daily. I could be getting rid of them. I messaged Dan but of course that is in vain as he barely comes on here. Great... hopefully there wont be more spam on top of the already 3 spam threads.

The spammers are getting a bit more subtle in asking rhetorical questions... but those have a solution in connecting to a link probably commercial in nature -- or worse.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist  but instead the people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists -- Hannah Arendt.

Thanks for the report.  Today is quite a banner day for our spammers.  This one makes for three.
