Nice work moderators

Post by jimandy » Wed Nov 01, 2006 8:57 pm

I haven't seen any spam in the forum lately, and that's the way it should be when you have moderators. Whether they've killed any spam or not, it seems to be working. Thanks bodgy and Mr.Al.

I'm hoping MrAl reads my message and deletes it. There actually has been a couple of spam threads, but they get deleted quickly! :grin:

Hi again,

Must have been deleted already Ku as it doesnt seem to be there
anymore.

One day there was like 10 posts came up all selling stupid stuff.
All from the same 'person'. I estimate they were there for about
an hour or so before i saw them. I dont think anyone else even
saw them because i didnt get any pm's about them.

It's nice to be able to do this now, and maybe that will send a message
to anyone who wants to post ads in these forums.

One thing i was thinking about, but havent come to any conclusions about
yet is, what about ad posts that are put into the
"Up For Grabs"
catagory...
should they be deleted if they sound like they are coming from a
company (to just allow the average person to post there) or not?
Any ideas?

That's a good question, Mr. Al. For what it's worth, ifa company has EOL stock or prototypes that didn't fit the bill that they'll offload for a pittance (and that's definitely subject to iinterpretation) then I'd be interested in knowing about it. On the flip side, that could rapidly flood the forum. I guess "free" could be a requirement for companies to advertise here. $0.02
