Bear with us while we deal with spam...

I'm sure everyone has noticed the rampant spam threads lately. We're doing our best to keep up with it and find a solution. Yesterday I signed in to find the entire active topic cue filled with spam and removed 12 threads in one sitting, I think I banned/deleted 20 total that day.

I know it's frustrating to sort through BS threads, but bear with us. We're not going to sit idly by and let it screw up CMF.

Re: Bear with us while we deal with spam...

Spam sucks no matter if it's in a can or on a forum.



I will not eat spam in a can
I will not click on spam with my hand
I will report internet spam that I see
I will not report spam at the grocery
If there were less spam in both places
Then I'm sure we'd see more happy faces

Who don't know it.
Yer feet show it - they're "Longfellows"!



I hate spam
No matter where I am.
I remove it from my sight,
Or else I take to flight.

Re: Bear with us while we deal with spam...

I got a response from the site admin. I asked them to add a CAPTCHA box to the New Thread page, and they said they'll look into adding more anti spam features. Is it the most reassuring response ever? No, but it means they're aware of the problem and we may see something implemented soon.

Hooray! I just eliminated (banned) at least 6 more minutes ago, and I had already banned that many earlier this morning.
