Default Spammer Issue

Seems like we're getting more and more spammers, and less legitimate posters in this forum. I think the latter may be due to the former, and wonder why do so many spammers get approved to join and their posts linger for so long? Does this site need more moderators/admins? Is it too easy to join? Are the bad threads not being taken down quickly enough? Is it driving others away?

Collectively I think the members on here can figure out a way to: 1) draw more people to Soviet-Steel and 2) quickly remove those who aren't on here for the right reasons. That first one may be a bit tough, but the second should be an easy fix.

Thoughts?

Cheers! M2

I am in full agreement. Its killing this once fine website. It really needs a good purge of these miscreants invading it.

Several more have shown up, very obvious when the titles are gobbledygook...

We appreciate the job you are doing, but it's getting to were one person simply can't keep up with the attacks. Any chance of getting additional mods/admins to combat them?

I have just deleted a ton of spam posts. I no longer own this forum, but I still check in, and surprisingly, I am still an Admin.

I will do what I can to try and help keep up with the spammers.

Thanks! Simonov.
