How often do you kill spammer posts?

Hi BLF!
I just killed 3 threads from spammers and was wondering, how often do you all have to mark threads as spam? Do we have super vigilant ninja spam killers in our midst? I average probably a couple a month. Also, I mostly get to kill some at night here in the US. Is that because all the other US users kill them in the day or are the spammers more active when it’s daytime in Asia? Just curious. Thanks for your contributions to keeping this place squeaky clean.

This time of night usually.
I like putting a beat-down on spam.

Whenever I see them! Zero tolerance!!! :ghost:

Occasionally it is a legitimate seller who doesn’t know the rules. It is nice to chat about paisley too, but these discussions get deleted.

I occasionally kill spammers’ accounts with my admin stick, but almost invariably you guys beat me to it. I really do appreciate the help.

Every couple of weeks I nail a few. I’m living in the same timezone as mainland China right now, so they pop up during my work day.

Spam isn’t really a problem though. The people here tend to slap them into oblivion in the first few minutes.

At slow times of the day for the forum I’ve gone through 10 spam posts at a time.

Could we block parsing of urls (clickable links) in posts & signatures for brand new users?

On this forum I just blasted that jibberish lastnight all 3 times. On another forum I have been on for a few years, I do it at least once a month. The mods on my other Hobby forum aren’t quiet as fast as this one. Sometimes, I have to call a mod on the phone. LOL

I've only gotten a few. They last about as long as an ant strolling past a bunch of 8 year-olds with magnifying glasses on a sunny day. Laughing

Seriously we came up with a really good system here. Spam never last a minute, pretty much all the time. And the ID’ing is very accurate too. Smile

The paisley was once quite an eyesore

But then our SB said "What a Bore!"

Now we block all the SPAM

By just clicking and "Wham"!

Our beloved forum is safe once more.

Dino Squirrel is gone from our board

Now who all the tank-flashlights will hoard?

We miss his presence here

Where is our absent dear

Lost Kreisler the dino-shilling lord!

I’ve hit the spam button four or five times since I joined, about 6 months ago. Usually half a screen of drivel scattered with links.

Not easy to get people to post and share their info / knowledge. Sometimes by commenting and sharing, we might get belittling remarks or malignant comments.
Even old timer flashaholics had dimmed their passion and stopped visiting / commenting. Sad to see someone banned actually.

How bright is bright enough...

Late to the party, again.

Kill ‘em as fast as I see them … I maybe get a couple a month, but it seems like it is in waves.

Did anybody ever confirm it was his post delete that was mid-giveaway? It was rude, but if the admin knows of other antics then I guess he hit sb’s pretty high tolerance threshold. My own level would have been pretty low on a thread where someone is so generously giving away stuff to BLF members, too.

I’m afraid I can confirm Kreisler deleted his post. I remember him having one of the first few posts, post #2 iirc.

I would like to him back on blf as well. It does seem that he needs correction of some behavior tho.
