Removing spam posts

#1
Is there anyway that an admin can remove all of the spam adds? I know it’s difficult to stop them but the amount on the board currently is getting out of hand.
thank you admins for all that you do!

in other chat rooms, when a post is reported as spam, the post is removed if confirmed by a mod. not sure what the protocol is here

By the way, bots are spamming all over the place. Less now but coming up to christmas there wasn't any Youtube channel provider that didn't have someone spamming every contributor with "You've won comment of the day, contact me at" messages. Seen those on all the social media sites. It's nice they do something about it. Gonna need to be adults here and make the bad guys efforts less profitable. In junk mail, your advertisement is considered succesful if you've extended the readers window of involvement from 7 seconds to 14. If they didn't see it and say, junk mail, immeadiatly, there was a chance that they would act on the add. I never knew they had a combination back scratcher and universal remote control, I think I'll buy one. SPAM bots work the same way. What the heck, she can lick her eyebrows AND play classical piano? I gotta see this. An adult sees that and hits ignore. Well, I wouldn't but then I LOVE classical piano.

Mod/Admin posted today, and is currently addressing the issues.
Just remember to REPORT the spam/offender, and the mods will get to it.

on another chat, you need to be approved before your first post. eliminates most spam.

how do they go about finding mods? seems easy enough to ask people if they're interested.

Agreed... on another forum I haunt, joining is manual and you must give details about why your joining. Takes a little longer to get approved, but there are very few spams that sneak through and they get ousted off the forum near immediately... not just the post.
