Thumbs down Nonsense posts

I don't know what is going on, but there sure are a lot of of nonsense posts.

They sure are a bunch of bull crap.

There is an icon at the top right of anyone's posting. It is the little blue and white square box. Click that and you can report the post. The report goes out to all moderators via email. We can take care of it.

Spammers usually hit, at night, when we are asleep so it can take a few hours before they can be wiped out.

Take care,
Mike

Any mods retiring? Is there room for advancement? Benefits? Is Cruise Site Moderation a growth industry field, or is there a glass ceiling? Internships or junior-moderator-in-training?

Manuel seems to want the job....

Maybe we can to a reality-tv style show... Mod Swap? Undercover Moderator? Who Wants to Marry a Moderator?

I could go on...

If they bring back Amanda for the Moderator's BB Version...I would be hauled away in cuffs, for attempted murder.

Last week there was a tie vote. Kuki and Trip had to compete and the first person who deleted the most "Kitchen Spam" in one minute was allowed to stay on the island.

Take care,
Mike

Does that mean I have to change my userid to "Linc M"? Always loved Clarence Williams III.

Another vote for Dancing with the Modators....My money would be on Mike M winning since he has watched the Lawerence Welk show he could have picked up some dance moves from Bobby and Cissy...

What about Survivor - The Moderator Version! Oops, I guess Mike M. mentioned that in the kitchen spam tiebreaker vote. I suppose, too, the idea of the game to survive might not work out, as the job is a loveless, under appreciated job and many may opt to do poorly just to get off the island!

Cruisemates' moderators do a good job. The spam has been removed before I even get online most days!
