The mods are doing a great job at banning the spammers. One was banned while I was reporting the thread... lol
But I have to say, the threads continuing to exist seems rather pointless. Indeed, it might even be counter productive as I'm sure the bots see those types of threads and that's why they come here to post their nonsense.
Therefore I submit to you, please DELETE the spam threads.
And I'm submitting a poll just to show that others agree with me on this.
we usually move them to a spam subforum or soft delete them... we never delete any posts permanently
Geoffrey,is there no way to stop this flood of spam? I see other forums with much less or none at all.

I suppose so. I guess our old spam filters don't work on vB4
Leave their spam up if you must, but edit out all their links.
I don't know if VB has this feature or not, but allowing regular users to Embargo posts by new players...so that only mods can see them, will allow some policing of the site when mods are not online.
It's been better, but we're still getting a few per day it seems. I should hit 200 in my sig # by week's end.

If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

Remember the axiom of big government bureaucrats: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. When, finally, under the crushing weight of taxes and regulation, it stops moving, subsidize it. Going Postal
