Whoever runs this site needs to get some help. Make a few of the older, better members moderators of these forums so spammers like Janey can get thier asses booted instantly.

I was curious about those posts but being new here I wasn’t sure if those were allowed. Ive been to other sites that are full of spammers and it takes away from the enjoyment of the site.

Martin will take care of it. But I believe that he is 6 hours ahead of those of us on the East coast so it is going on midnight there. These spammers don’t last long as Martin kicks them off as soon as he can.

One thing we are lacking is some way to let Martin know about this. Normally this would be done through a private message, either here or via facebook, but I doubt it would be constructive if all 12000+ were to send him a message whenever one of these spammers show up.

I have no complaints about the job Martin is doing, I am saying he needs help. A couple Mods from different time zones would be able to kick out the spammers when they hit instead of hours or even days later. It would make things easier on Martin also.

It looks like Martin already took care of it. The posts arn’t on anymore that I can see. This is a great site. Thanks Martin and all the other members that make this site fun.

No problem I have send a message to Martin and he took them out.
He told me that anytime we see something like that we need to send him a PM,not to post it on feedback.
So it is our job too to look a bit more at those new mwmbers.

i think people need to remember martin lives in Europe and most of the LJ’s here are from the US so the time difference is quite long so give him the grace to get some sleep and deal with these spammers when he can this site is the best community out there so please if you see a spammer just PM Martin and politly mention them to him and as normal he deals with them promtly and affectively

You just said the same thing I did.
An Email or a PM is not an alarm clock he will read as soon as he has time.
