    and after securing the forum, you at least need to ban the following accounts that appear to be bots

    It would be great if the admin's could prevent a new user from posting until the account is validated. 

    I am not sure how much personnel resources BGE HQ has for the forum, but it would be great if someone was validating accounts and also deleting spam/flames/inappropriate posts.  There has got to be someone answering phones or working the retail desk that could do that in their down time.

    Or is there a way to have the user community "flag" inappropriate posts and they go away? 

  • Eggzilla said the forum was being moderated, but clearly it is not.  I won't do it, but one has to wonder what would happen if someone dropped an F bomb in a topic title, :))

  • that's not true whiz...if you notice most of the "spam" has been removed and we are currently finding the rest and removing them and the users so it doesn't continue in the future.

    If you happen to stumble upon some please send me the username so I can get it deleted immediately.

  • Sorry, Eggzilla, it doesn't look it.  I'll send you a personal message lest I be accused of having an "agenda"....
