Unhappy What's with the admins?

Wheeeee!
Now we can embed youtube videos.
BFD ("fat", not the other word.).

If only they'd do something about the infernal spammers who post about ripping dvds, selling shoes and cracked cell phones. They used to be pretty good at that, anymore seems they don't care.

Or perhaps I'm the only person bothered by it?

We try to catch them as quickly as we can - their life is rarely more than a few hours...

That's what I thought, too, but...not.
Even when reported some last for weeks. ginglebell and tehou369 for example are recent examples, only noticed because the creeps came back to bump, support and promote their crap.
May as well remove the report button, eh?

sorry if we have missed some - I am happy for you to PM me if you like. The report button usually does work...

perhaps we were all pissed when you reported?

If there is one thing that would make me leave a website it would be spam. I hate it a lot. I don't even do myspace because of that, and only use Facebook via blackberry, it eliminates all the spam 100%.

Moronically, instead of spaminating tehou369, they banned him. I'm sure his "friendly8" response that links out is more of the same, too (or else it's a trojan download site).

And Ross, thanks for the tips, but I recall how things work from when I was a mod, just disappointed things are so unresponsive to the "Report" button.

Sly, I absolutely agree. Every time I log on and see one of those jackals it irritates me, I think there should be a waiting period before you can post (or at least for the first 48 hours your posts go to a queue for approval, if approved they go active, or the jackal can be spaminated immediately). What's more frustrating is that I take the time to report the damn thing and then the admins ignore it...at least apparently.
