Could a mod please remove the spam in the 3SGTE forum, it's been up for over a day now.

Jeez, talk about lazy & neglectful - half a week now. It takes just a few minutes to eliminate this spam and ban the users. Shameful.

I feel like it should be easy to automatically flag posts as spam if it is more than ~10% Chinese characters. Don't know why it can't be automated at this point. Looks like it's in several forums.

Who owns and manages this forum at this point? I get the sense this and similar forums have become basically corporate owned and administered remotely. Not complaining, as I'm glad the place still has a path forward, just curious...

Vertical Scope whoever/whatever that is, they have bigger forums to take care of at this point.

There's no point reporting the user names, it's a bot creating and posting not a person.

They need to restrict the user creation or make it more difficult for the bots to crack.

Guys and Gals, I can only speak for myself, but a mod position doesn't pay. I try and jump on here a couple times a week and clean up things. Thanks for understanding.

I appreciate that - we all have families, etc. But that doesn't mean I understand it. I'm an unpaid mod on another board and like Yoda - I don't try. I do. I check out my board several times a day - not because I have to, because I want to.

This spam would have been gone within a few hours of its existence on my watch (within 5 hours overnight).

I feel the same as Pete, I've been with this forum since 2008 and hate to see what it has become compared to what it was, I certainly don't like seeing it cluttered with spam. I would be doing it as a charity as well, I know the corporations who buy these forums up don't care how well they're run just that the ads generate revenue.

Should not be too difficult to prevent but I'm not sure how much control the mods have vs the admins.
