With all due respect, It's not hard to spot the spammers. I work another board (otherwise I would volunteer here) and all mods are free to delete posts.


Mods here can delete and delete and delete hundreds of posts from the same bot. A mod with enhanced powers could stop the user-bot cold.

As I've said before, the solution is not to delete posts, or even accounts. The solution is to stop the bot from registering in the first place. :roll:

No one disagrees. But then, no one currently reading here can enact such a thing.

Why not? Can't they pop on for 5 minutes to at least delete these spam accounts that have been posting for the last month?

Oh that I could, I would. This has been the most frustrating of recent events; I can't even READ the ePlaya for all the time I have to spend here is spent whacking spam.

I went ahead & PM'd Spanky today asking if one of the current mods could be elevated to admin to deal with this. If I had AG's email I'd send it to her as well.

Seemed a little more proactive than sitting here pushing that damn spam-triangle all day. The good news is that all the spam makes it easier to step away from eplaya- too much crap to try to find actual posts.

I wouldn't exactly think that to be good news; but it's had the same effect on me as well.

YEAH! My new hero for a day! Now let me check to see if they were also deleted from my FOE list.

The name may still show on your foe list, as it's still in the user database. But both the user name and ip have been blocked from login (at least that's how I understand it).

Auto image-resizing is on the to-do list. No ETA just yet, there are a few other enhancements and upgrades that need to come first.

Well, since to date you have displayed amazingly little tendency to string us along, thank you, I look forward to the improvement.
