How about deleting the spam threads
« on: December 29, 2013, 01:17:21 PM »

I see a lot of spam threads and posts. Isn't anyone monitoring and deleting them. Some old ones too. Just curious what's going on.

There's a new spam thread in Central Boiler. Are they made by robospammers? and how do they get past the security questions upon account creation?

I am a moderator on some atv forums and will offer to be a moderator here.  If spam is not deleted and site blocked, the forum will get flooded with more.

We have three pretty active moderators now, if we miss a spam post then simply report it to us using the "report to moderator" link at the bottom right of that post and we will delete it asap.
