I took care of alot of that spam b-4 here on the site,but after a disagrement on a link i made i quite moderating and i have noticed that 1 of the boards that i was over has got bad.I didnt realy pay it much attention how much i heped that bord untill after i wasent over it myself.
The truth is that the owners and or mike do not look into the site near as often as the members do and therfor miss alot of the trash that needs removed,but with fairness spam is very hard to deal with,like this,
After i built my site I made a forum and have noticed that it is exstreamly diffucult to keep the spammers and their spam of of the site,so i set the membership button to approval only so before the spammer can post his/her name has to be approved by me,and the spammers names are always off the wall names so i do not approve any one that has got a name that is a spam type name and that has helped alot in so much that if any name gets by that i do approve and they spam,it is minimal and i delete the member rite away.
If any one joins that has a odd name and i dont approve it they can just drop me a e-mail and let me know it is a actual member and that they have just chose a odd name then i approve them and that has helped alot,but for this to work the site owner/owners have to spend time with their site at least enough to moderate it.
My site is not just a business to me,but a place where me and friends talk etc.
