Is it spam, you are referring to, or something else? I think we do a pretty good job of removing spam, as long as it's reported.

That's the downside of a semi-public forum. The system is fairly good at blocking the "automated spam" but if a real human registers and posts then we are pretty much out of luck.

It is so easy to get an email address that blocking email domains is fruitless and spammers use "proxy" servers all over the world, so blocking domains is also hard.

If the spam is reported we can delete it.

Take care,
Mike

I think Manuel was just expressing "wishful thinking" and no criticism was intended.

Trip, so true! I actually find quite a bit of spam before it is reported, we just try to take care of it as soon as we see it...It is unfortunate, but it is everywhere these days.
