    SPAM ! Mods please help. 12th Apr 18 at 5:07 PM
    Is there a mod on this board that can remove all the rubbish, its unreadable.

    Although I do chuckle at the time someone has clearly spend spamming a forum with USA phone numbers, not realising that it is a UK forum!

    At the moment reporting spam is like whack-a-mole at the school fair when I was a kid. I've never seen so much spam on here before.

    Between the spam and the imposed new layout, the site is pretty much a bust.

    I occasionally find I have no spam and report buttons. No idea what makes them dissapear.

    The idea to increase the "spam points" of proven good spam reporters is a nice one.

    The Spam button doesn't appear on certain forums, such as DFW and MFW. There may be other forums where this is imposed too. I've never seen the Report button disappear however.

    Spammers don't care where this forum is located, just that it ranks reasonably high on google and other search engines - that way numbers posted here get indexed by those search engines and are shown fairly high in the results.

    Linking-up the spammers profile or even one post in the daily spam threads in Board Feedback is IME the fastest way to get the mods attention, esp on weekends.
