On another forum I help mod, I banned two new users just this morning. All they posted was an advertisement for selling stuff. Absolutely nothing to do with the forum. Hammer time!

And that’s the point some people miss. It’s not all bots. Sometimes it’s a grunt doing rote work spamming as manny places as many times as they can. Yes, this place is seemingly easier than others. No argument there. But there is no one solution. Sometimes, the only solution is to remove afterwards.

And probably limited fund? Just guessing on this one :-)

And an upline unwilling to allocate proper resources.

Shawn made an effort to do what he could, but he was just one person. Tanner is making an effort to do what he can, but is just one person.

I used to report a lit of spam but lately, most that I attempt to report have already been reported. That's good in that it appears more are helping report the nasty stuff. Then there are days where the place is so full of spam that I just don't want to see it and move away.

Users are doing what they can. Tanner is doing what he can. Upper management, it appears, is just sitting on their can.

Thereare plenty of open source spam filters, some with deep and/or Bayesian learning capabilities. Gmail solved this problem using such tools to a large extent.

I am familiar with web/forum hosting. So, I won't accept any excuse except a resolution. There are plenty of tools out there to solve something like this. This has only deepened my disappointment in Roku.

This is really out of control and inexcusable. Like others have said there are tools out there to prevent this. In all the years I was a mod if this happened once in a large amount it was quickly handled and not to happen again. More moderators isn't the solution.
