Why are we STILL plagued with spam? It seems that there is more and more every day… It’s getting to the point that it’s difficult to find the discussions for the spam, which is very bad news, as it will drive away potential new members, and make those of us who are fighting the rising tide go elsewhere to forums that have an easier interface and a much better record of getting rid of the spam.
It’s all very well to say you are fighting it, but there has to be a way that something marked as inappropriate that is spam can be removed in less than a week. Vetting membership may be tedious and take time, but it must surely be easier and faster than allowing this mess and then taking weeks to remove it.
If other forums can set up spam filters, why cannot Burdastyle do the same?
