No don't think so, it's just that no one is actively monitoring and moderating and generally doing the admin stuff on this forum....

I've also sent them a request that they make up a couple of regular user's to Moderator status to eliminate spammers and to keep a general eye on the site.
There's been a couple who have shown interest in undertaking this and hopefully someone from ADMIN can offer this as an alternative.

Well it seems to be going from bad to worse, unless someone is extracting the Michael, particularly when as I am posting in this thread, at the bottom of the page I find recomended reading is the very subject/topic of this thread.

If the posts are not removed, just click on the offending posters avatar next to the original post and when their info page pops up click "Ignore" and poof, they disappear!

Just to be clear for anyone who needs it, first click on the avatar of the spammer:
3583


When the spammer's info page appears, just click on "Ignore"!

3584

Go back to the main page of the forum and "Refresh" the page and poof, they are gone!

Yes I'm going to do that, which doesn't absolve the admin though..

Really? I've just done it with the two spam messages in this section and they are no longer showing.

Ok guys I know the spammers are an issue but have a thought for the guys who own this site as this forum may not be their primary job especially in the current situation. My son is a web designer for our local council and some of the things that require changing which may take us 30 seconds to write in a post could take hours and sometimes days of programming. I agree it would be nice to at least get a response from admin but it looks like the site has been set up just to run without anyone looking after it. For all we know the "moderators" may be working on something more important.

In the meantime click on the spammers user name and then click ignore on the next screen and all the posts from that person disappear.

All they have to do is appoint one of the many who have volunteered their services as a moderator.

A 'mod' will normally have the capability to remove spam and block an offending IP.

In the meantime, VerticalScope are happy to push Premium Memberships which do nothing more than you can do for free with AdBlock Plus

One of the administrators 'admin' was on 2 days according to their profile.
Would be nice if they would make a comment or respond.
