Default Spammity Spam Spam lately

Yes, there seems to be more spam on the forum lately. Thank you to those of you who report spam posts. Please keep it up.

We let people sign up for the forum and post right away. That makes the site more accessible and gives new users more immediate feedback/gratification. As a result, however, it means that spammers can create an account and quickly post links to some sort of crap that none of us want.

Luckily, it doesn't happen a ton, and you guys are good at letting the moderators know. Just click the link that says report post and we'll get a notification. One of us usually logs in and deletes the crap within a few hours.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, you guys are on it fast - thanks for doing that! I wish there wasn't a 60 second delay for posting though. When I see 2 or more posts I have to remember to come back to report the other posts. I do understand why that limit exists. . . so the spammers can't over spam!!

Just went to the new posts, and eight of the threads are spam.

I try to report the spam when I can, but there is a 60 second waiting period before reporting the next spam thread. So instead of taking a minute or so to report all of the spam, it takes multiple minutes.

Is there a way to get rid of this 60 second waiting period between spam reports?

Yep, there's been a spate of it lately. Especially on weekends. I've been deleting them and banning them, but it keeps coming. I'm still reluctant to say we should make changes because I don't want to discourage legit users from asking questions. But we're getting closer.

I really appreciate the work you do with these jerks. My guess is that there aren't a lot of them, but the same ones using different names and addresses. What they get out of it, I don't understand.

It seems this jacka** has really stepped up his game lately. Maybe time to turn the tables?

I just play whack a mole when you guys report the spam. It may be time to change the rules so you can't post a thread until you're approved or something like that. We'll see.

I think people who are really interested in joining these forums won't mind a minor annoyance when signing up. I know I don't mind.
