Spam spam spam
« on: September 28, 2019, 03:15:47 pm »
So in addition to Mobi sitting back and (at least not publicly) doing anything to improve AM, and having a much reduced presence here on the forum, I have noticed an increase of spam. Four "posts" this morning from the same user. And at least one or two a day. I'm not saying that it didn't happen under Kostya's watch, but he probably was more vigilant than Mobi and took care to delete them before most users saw them. Since Mobi people don't appear on the forum with any frequency, the spam piles up.

HEY MOBI! You need someone to moderate the forum if for no other reason than to delete the spam that's showing with more frequency than you.

I used to open them and click on 'report to moderator' but I don't even want to look at them any longer. So I rely on someone else to report them. Or simply mark them as read and more on. But they are indeed showing up more frequently of late.

Pretty disgusting, apparently there's no moderation along with no updates. Who's minding the store?

Hi all,

I personally remove every reported spam almost immediately. Honestly, I rely on your help for keeping the forum clean and I thank you for the reports. One person will see slowlier the spam than everybody how is here and reads and reports. Please keep on sending reports for spam topics and I will remove them asap.

Thanks Michael. It's helpful to know that someone is keeping an eye out for spam. And I apologize if I was a little harsh in the first post. It's because the first thing I saw that day were four spam posts from the same person. I know you can't be on 24/7, so I will re-start using the 'report to moderator' button.
