Re: I suggest we give spammers the boot!

I sent Ryan a PM on the same topic yesterday. Guess this is the issue when it's an open sign up vs some sort of approval process.

Personally, I think there should be some sort of approval mechanism. Maybe the first post is limited to new members portion of the forum so it's easy to monitor. And if a new member doesn't post within a certain period of time, like a week, why even sign up as a member?

My concern about making people go through an approval process is that it involves restrictions I didn't want to put on brand new members.
Up until last night, we haven't had spam problems, so the fact that it happened once isn't enough to bother me. It is a valid concern that it may happen again, but for now, I'm not interested in restricting how many posts a poster needs to post links/pictures/whatever. I will keep a close eye on things and as soon as I think that needs to be implemented, I will do it, but I don't think that time is now.

However, posting about this on the forums is absolutely useless if I'm not online to take care of the spam.
I dunno if Yabb had this feature, but what does work is the process of warning the post. On each post, you will see an upside down triangle in the upper right corner of the post, next to a member's name and avatar picture. If you click that triangle, you can warn the post, give a reason, and it will send me an email. I will get it on my smartphone and immediately take care of it as long as I can.
