I have reported Noel Blakely for four SPAM posts this morning.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I've been reporting NoelBlakely for over a week now. Would love to know how he keeps getting in the door!

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

On the bench... somewhere. Pink Panther show car, 1978 Dodge Magnum Charger Daytona Midnight edition SE 300. Mongrel T.

I've done everything on my end to appoint two mods, which you'll be notified once you are. Just waiting on IT to pull the trigger. Again, there's other stuff we are working on that takes priority.

Being patient hasn't helped either, so what's your point?

 Obviously the gears are in motion, and Robby has been very forthcoming with where he is at in the process. I do not believe he is the one in charge of actually making the changes. I think he submits his suggestions and waits for it to go up the hill and back down to him . 

 

in all actuality though,  I have seen several comments in the last 48 hours that are immature and childish .  One that was taken so far the entire post was deleted . Come on people,  are we not adults here?

I have reported 14 spam posts this morning alone. There is one thread in the Sports Car forum with nine spam posts in it, going back almost a year.

Oh, and I mentioned this in another post this morning, but perhaps this is the best place to put it;

Anyone who has quoted a spammer, the quote in your post still contains the spam link once the spammer's account is eventually deleted. Please go back and remove these links from your posts. Cheers.

There is more SPAM in this thread, than member content !

http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/31/t/126369.aspx

Yet , as a Forum member, my "atta boy' comment in the reader gallery was held for 24 hour's. So the moderator's could decide if it was appropriate.The waiting period use to be in effect with new member post's too. The waiting period should be Re-instated. I believe that would at least slow down some of the spam.

In the recent past, I have been told that my childish ranting about spam was un-nessicarry. This is true. But I view Spam as many of you view Robo-call's. Spam Causes me to Rage and scream at the top of my lung's !  I will "Try" to hold my tongue a bit longer.

( I'm actually "Biting" it as I type this...)

 

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...

The first three threads I opened this morning were SPAM, they were reported.  We have to find some way to close the entry portal for these spammers.  For some reason, this is the only forum of the six I frequent with a SPAM problem.

It really is getting old. IT really needs to look into this. SA is the only forum I am on with this issue. Not even FSM has this problem. Probably someone from MCM.

I agree with Lee, someone needs to look into this, and the sooner the better. It's way past the point of pointing fingers and assigning blame, it needs to be resolved. It doesn't matter whos at fault, it needs to be taken care of. Countless numbers of posts have been reported as spam yet no action has been taken to remove the spammers and to prevent this from happening again and again.

The Spam Poster's now OUTNUMBER the post's of actual member's 

I'm at a loss for word's .... ( TRANSLATION : I cannot say what I REALLY want, because I would be REMOVED FROM THE FORUM !   Meanwhile , the spam would STILL BE HERE ! )

I'm "This close" to saying it anyway.... and starting a Holy War . We are under constant attack and given NOTHING to fight back with exept a little Yellow Triangle that "apparently" go's nowhere.

I have been told in the recent past, that my "Childish ranting" does not help the problem...

Neither do "EMPTY PROMISE'S " from those higher up on the food chain here....

I am DONE apologizing for  getting angry about the amount of spam on this forum !

You guy's need to figure out what your going to do about it. The Spam has gone on "FAR BEYOND " long enough !

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

Yeah, it's pretty sad when the spammers are more active than the members here. If something isn't done soon, they'll be the only ones here I'm afraid. I don't want to give up on this forum. But, with the incessant spam, lack of activity and people posting whatever wherever, I'm about there.

We have been patient. It's time to do something. I can't believe that it takes the IT department a month to program this forum so that moderators can be appointed. If it does, they should be replaced.   

While the forum and magazine are separate entities, they are connected. If you lose a member, more than likely, you'll lose a subscriber too. Just ask Gregg Hutchings.

I've gone through and cleaned up the majority of the spam/laid the ban hammer down. Sent again, key word "again" another email to try and get this resolved and figure out where we're at with moderators.

Wow! Not a single spam post to report today. That's the first time in several months I cruised the forum and found no new spam posts. Remarkable.

Hunh... I kinda miss the little buggers. Smile, Wink & Grin

It's been just about a month since this post was made. I'm not really sure what to think about this situation anymore. My head says one thing, but my heart says something else. Not trying to be negative, nor am I looking for a war with the longtime forum vets, but I think if something was going to be done it would have happened by now. Maybe I'm dead wrong on this, maybe not. But in any case I am quite disapointed. SadConfused
