I agree. Maybe the mods should start vetting the new members. Something low key and easy that doesn't take too much time on their part. Might be easier then the constant banning of spammers.

I hear you guys, especially since I'm the one doing most of the cleanup. I've notified tech and hopefully we get stricter account policies in place very soon.

Yeah, I'm sure you're getting crushed with this mess. It's no slight on you, but man has it been out of control lately.

The best response to spammers is reporting their posts...

 

... or install an AI for the site, trained to identify spam posts automagically, because that's a thing that exists... will exist ... might happen eventually...

 

... or mods (thanks for all you do Mikey :) )...

Thank you Coldwater for bringing this up. I've wanted to say something so bad lately, but I was waiting for someone with more street cred around here like you to. Ive only been here for about a year, and this seems out of control lately.

Just an update for you guys--I'm still doing cleanup in the meantime, however, our tech guys have found the issue that's letting the spammers through and we're working through to shutting them down. Thanks for your patience.

Well done. Good luck! These bastards are killing the site!
