    I don't know if all the moderators are away or is it acceptable to post ads for the latest miracle potion or real estate deals. I keep reporting these threads, but if they are what the board wants I won't bother to do it.

    I think pretty much the board is running on autopilot. I report them all too.

    Ditto on the reporting.

    Might be time to tighten up on the registration process somehow. Seems like all this junk is coming from the "Register just to post spam and disappear" idiots. Perhaps some sort of slight delay (hours, days, a couple days?) between registration and allowed posting could help stifle that behavior while still encouraging the "real" folks to sign up and participate?

    I've reported as many as 4 in a row, as quickly as the program allows. I've sent this thread to Malloy.

    Sorry, the spam has been insane these last few days! It should be cleaned up now. Also, I tightened up spam control which should help.
