Well, I'll volunteer myself to be a mod . I keed...I keed.

On a serious note, I have noticed a lot of spam lately.

It definitly seems like the past couple weeks there has been an increase in spam. Everytime I log on it seems like I see 1 or 2 new posts about selling unlocked cell phones.

This forum has the most spam of any forum I've ever seen...

However the traffic here is pretty high, so it's on the radar.

Something was done a little while back that slowed the spam for a second, but whatever it was has been figured out and the spam is back.

I've gotten to the point where I just ignore it, but it is still a mess. Kinda gives me the same feeling I get when I see a bum begging for money. It doesn't really hurt anything, but it makes the place look like shit.

more mods wont do crap, it will still be there, we are working on measures to stop/slow the spam rather then just deleting it as it comes.

I haven't really noticed any spam at all, but I'm not really one to talk, I've only been a member for about a month, and I'm also on east coast time for now which is probably when most traffic is. I do agree with a flagging system though, where if you were flagged say 10 times within a day, you were locked out for a period of time, or just not be allowed to post.

I think we do. Or just a better security system.

I check several other forums regularly but this one gets hammered the most with spam. Seems to be getting worse lately also. I wonder where these fuckers are coming from..
