Idea about Spam

I was thinking about TM13's old idea, that there could be "sub-moderators" on the site. I know I as well as several other people always see spam, and don't know what to do about it. Maybe "sub-mods" could flag other users as spammers, which simply makes all their forum posts invisible. The flag could then be seen by a real moderator, who could delete or unblock it. What do you think?

I just thought if there were twice as many people removing spam, it would get deleted twice as quickly. No one's on the site 24 hours a day, as far as I know. Smile

I think there's moderators online pretty much all the time. There definitely aren't gaps of much more than a couple hours. For example, Daft, James AND I are on as I'm typing this. Although "spam reporter" users or "sub-mod" users is a really good idea if there's a lot of spam, I think we have it under control right now. This being said, if you see spam, please hop on webchat and tell us, as bubblefish4 said. ^^

I prove his pont by responding to said message. Smile

Bubblefish4 as the correct Idea. You can just pop in the IRC and tell us if you see any suspicious activity among the news users. (Actually, it's also a good place to ask a quick question, if it hasn't been answered already in the forums.) Sub-mods are not needed at the moment, but if we need them, we'll let the public know. Wink

(Spammers and spammer related products do not count towards the public because they are somewhat non-existant Internet robots who plan to destroy the world with lasers... Sounds like the ultimate troll!)

@THIT:
I believe the spam they refer to are adds and junk created by trolling bots just looking for a good place to drop their advertisements.
I honestly don't think you're a spammer anyways, because a spammer that's not a bot (most of the time) posts useless posts as often as they can, wherever they can.
Oh and a spammer also eats a lot of Spam, but that has nothing to do with forums, unless it's a forum for Spam eaters, which this is not!

So dresses, earrings, steering wheels, ear bones, and the afterlife are all related! They all happen to be uninhabited. Who knew? THIS HAS GLOBAL CONSEQUENCES! Shock

For the sake of this spammer, I almost wish I was making this up. But no, he/she/it was really this much of a moron. And repeated itself twice. And repeated itself twice.

Totally made my day. Smile

I think it was "Ilovego", which is actually a pretty intelligent name (Just with one letter missing). How can a spammer be so smart with a name and totally botch basic English is beyond me. Tongue

Okay...the random word generator says...

Sounds like something a spammer would say, actually. Smile

Actually, maybe even smarter. He did say "The Last of the Goo Balls" a lot, which actually makes sense given this forum. Tongue

Joined: 08/06/2010

I used a generator that lets you put in 2 nouns, and I used "The Last of the Goo Balls" and "Goo".
