You may be right, though, that by reporting individual spammers perhaps someone at ST would do something, but i doubt it. And, if someone did delete it, i doubt it would be in a timely enough manner to prevent clutter from the constant influx of new spam threads. Take a look at the Seahawks forum if you want to see how bad things have gotten here. I doubt anyone at the Times wants to spend the time necessary to deal with that.

That is exactly right. Joan has been the only one, she retired from the Times a couple years ago and now has obviously retired from her unique hobby as spam zapper. There is now a politics thread at Everyone is welcome. Or you can stay here and go down with the Titanic while screaming into and empty Atlantic ocean for a rescue boat that will never come.

Ha! Do not go down with the ship.

As they say nothing last forever. It was a good run. Good times. I'm sure the words will live on in the ethernet of the internet for some time. Future aliens will discover our thoughts and deduce that we had a sort of Apocalypse... or maybe just an invasion of AI bots.

"It's all about the money"

If you were a barley surviving newspaper....would you pay someone to babysit a chit chat room ?

Apparently the number of on-line inquiries, hits, electronic activity generated by R and R doesn't amount to a hill of beans in the endless quest for Times revenue, unless they're figuring spam into the deal. Doubt it.. And besides were just a small group of redneck conservatives/ deplorables who probably don't even subscribe to the paper.

If anyone at the Seattle Times had half a clue, they would recognize the opportunity to monetize this section with ad banners, the most basic level of Business 101 in the tech age. They could be making easy money - but upgrading the software for $5 and selling ad space must be too much of an investment for them - even though that is the entire business model now for all on-line pages. Hard to believe the people in charge are this dumb. Actually, not really. :P
