Default Noticed Something

I've noticed that this forum never gets any spam. Just wondering what you are doing to prevent this? Maybe spread the word. I've seen it become an increasing problem on other forums I am a member on.

Oh, well then I should have said I haven't seen any. Obviously the mods do a good job of cleaning it or maybe I'm not on here enough to catch it. I'm on AIM currently.

We do get a fair bit, but mods find it, members report it, and it's gone within minutes.

Yes BF2player, joxley & others are right, as busy as all us mods are, [there are eleven of us + David] we can always find time to deal with spammers, one of the reasons is that there is virtually 100% cover round the clock, due to mods being spread out over most time zones, then there's me, I'm on line to CF most days from around 9am to 10pm so you could say "when ever you're here, a mod's not far away", lol.

I've just noticed something too, the neg rep you gave me a while back, care to tell me what that was about???, as I said on a forum earlier today, I have just gone from 3 to 4 green rep squares due to quite a few pos reps I got just lately, I tell ya, your one red looks very lonely amongst all those greens!!

I have not seen any real spam here since I signed up, perhaps the odd advert or two.

Yes and sometimes there are cases that stay for a couple minutes before mods find it (usually a couple seconds and they're zapped and the OP is banned.)
