    It was before my time and I never got the specifics on it, the policy has been in place since long before I became a mod there (5 years ago!)

    On the other hand, it's sometimes helpful to be able (as mods) to go in and read posts that were deleted and see some items that were posted, what kind of spam and so on. I've sort of wished for a few times here when dealing with someone and wanting to check their history and compare IP addresses, that sort of thing...

    Everyone:

    The easiest and best way to report spam is to simply click on the red triangle in the upper right-hand corner of any spam post you come across. You'll get a form you can quickly fill out and submit which will then send a Reported Post message to all moderators and admins, and we can then click on it and be taken directly to the spam post where we can deal with the spammer and any and all other posts he may have made.

    This way we don't need to search for the user and his posts, and we are alerted much more quickly. Not to mention, we're not left with extra posts scattered around the forums after the spam has been removed.

    Thanks for all your help and vigilance. This is a battle that we sometimes feel we're losing, but the faster we can deal with these pricks, the less time they have to pollute our forum.

    I have now turned off new automatic registrations.

    Spammers have finally gotten to me, I spend so much time
    trying to sift through new registrations and would be spammers
    that I have hardly enough time to even read any posts nowadays.

    I personally review every new registration and then try and delete
    if it looks like a spammer. Now this will need to happen before anyone
    new is allowed to post. This basically means any new members will need
    to be patient until I have time to move them into new users. Any user
    fields that are not filled out correctly or honestly will automatically be
    dumper.

    If this last effort doesn't work then I am planning on shutting down
    new user registrations period.

    Thanks Dan.

    Your guys do more than enough.. Alot, get past me and you guys
    keep it filtered on the site. I was out of town this weekend and had
    about 50 spammers I needed to delete last night. You guys got some
    and I wiped them out. Then, this morning, 3 new ones. Never ending..
