I report 10-20 posts before I get tired, because it feels I am doing it in vain. Is there really no standard function that can be enabled to enforce all new members postings to be approved by a moderator before they are visible? I feel the fact that the spam posts actually shows up is actually encouraging them to continue. As Sandy mentioned reporting a Spammer (new Member) ONCE, is sufficient - and is certainly both appreciated and very effective. The fact that last night (EU time) you saw many posts from one spammer is a function of several separate components: for example, in relation to the deleting of al those items and banning of the members - you would not have seen any of that spam if you logged on an hour or so later. What I mean is last night, 90% of the spam, and spammers happened within two, two hour windows and 90% of each batch of that spam and those spammer was gone and banned within 2 hours of the spammer joining Photo.net. The Spam Posts showing on the forums do not really do much to encourage spamming: most it it is automated. As mentioned previously (perhaps on another thread), the encouragement to spam is a meager payment to the third party spammer by the primary entity. It is the same basic principle as the spam/scam in your email and directed to you phone via calls and SMS. WW Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
