There seems to be quite a bit of spam posted on here in recent weeks, is no one moderating it?
I do moderate the forums, but it can be difficult. I am currently on holiday and spammers can drop by at any given time and post lots of spam.
I have put lots of measures in place in order to prevent spam. Unfortunately, they continue to get through.
I am considering making the forum private and requesting every new member to contact me by email in order to participate in the community. It is a bit of an extreme step, but it may be the best route to go down.
Another option is to charge a small fee, such as a few dollars, in order to join the forum. I have did this in another community and it practically eliminates spam as spammers do not want to put any money down (particularly as they know there's a good chance their account will be deleted).
