I think Darren already suggested that to one of the staff there (Gina?) but they declined to do that. The whole thing seems strange because they must have some IT people working for them, but apparently they can't allocate any of those people's time towards upgrading the software for the forum so that it filters out spam or any of the other preventative measures listed in your other post. Instead, they told Darren just to email the staff when there was spam and provide usernames of the spammers and then they would delete their posts/accounts.

Getting past the spam is like going to the "As Seen on TV" store. You have to walk by millions of junk products just to find one item worth while.

You might recall they gave them to weebs for a while but that was many years ago.

That way, I could copy and paste usernames of the most recent spammers and give that list to the ST staff since they seem to be too lazy to make the effort.


Yep, right here:

Thanks, i'll get on it later this evening. I'm sure it will do a lot of good. :cry:

By the way, where did you find that link? I checked everywhere on the website (or so i thought) and couldn't locate it.
