need spam cleanup
Couldn't tell if report-a-post is working (timing out) but we need some immediate spam cleanup in Off Topic. Thanks!

I'd like things to go back and forth from "ARGH!" to "WOOO!" more frequently. - Kamikaze Midget
Thanks. There's a new one, however; and again the reporting function timed out on me.
Working on the timeouts....
And yet two more in Off Topic.
And another in the Computers/Software forum.
Eric, I got the 3 you mentioned...
I'm really loathe to do any moderation, as it's not in my scope, but, that porn one couldn't stay another 10 seconds.
I wonder if there might need to be another level of "moderator" -- not to stop fights, etc, but just a "spam cleanup crew" that can do "soft deletes" in the most spammed forums (like Off Topic)... There are lots of high-post community members who might be willing to take out the trash...
And/or ... maybe there is a technial way to limit brand new members (0 posts) to at least not being able to include pictures and/or links in their earliest posts...
I emailed Russ. I really don't want to moderate, but I did. Those porn pics were like all that.....had to go now.
I killed the ad spam block posts as well.....
I THINK they are either testing or now have a method to slow down the registration process, where a registrant must answer a question, or one of those control image thingy's... I'm not sure.....
I DO believe Russ won't shoot me tho....for the thread deletion.....
Hope Russ won't shoot you because there is another already -- check your PMs. Thanks for your vigilance!
