The site bubba's have apparently run off (or they left for other reasons) all but two (to my count) Moderators.

So, unless they are up and looking when it happens, all the Spam is going to land and sit.

Oddly, the two Mods I'm thinking of are located in opposite corners of our great Country.

I wonder if they could add a "flag as inappropiate" feature like Craigslist has? That way after a couple flag it, it'll be gone & "policed" by users not the mods? just an idea

I doubt that's possible......as requiring manual approval for new members is a rather basic feature that's been around since the days of dialup BBS forums......and this software doesn't even have that.

We've been told before, in effect, "what you see is all we got".

As for "moderators", there seems to be two or three "company" people who post here fairly regularly. Do they not have moderator permissions too??

While it is a significant irritation for all, I don't see it as something to get all worked up about. Users always have a choice. I'd think that the owners would be more concerned about that than they seem to be though.

Think of all the chances you'd miss to make fun of the spamming ass holes if they were gone.

Its.......A FACT!

You know it would be comical if it wasn't so sad.

The Fcuking MO board is a joke.

Damn Canadians ruined it!

That's it in a nutshell. I could delete and block spammers all day long and it's like peeing in the ocean. Untill the powers that be install some blocking software this is going to be an on going problem.

To be honest I really don't care anymore. I miss the camaraderie and all that but it's just not worth the effort. I go on Sport Touring .net now, much more fun site. These guys can go f*ck themselves as far as I'm concerned.

I suppose you need to split your time between ADV and STNet, with your garage inhabitants, eh?

ADV is ok, lot's of internet tuff guys though which I find off-putting. The oilhead GS section is ok........I've been on STNet since I had my first Bandit but didn't post much, I enjoy the variaty and frankly it's much better run than the new MO.

I just had a chunk of my colon removed so I can't ride for a few weeks which is no fun, I don't know how those snow belt guys manage, I'd go flippin' nuts not riding for months at a time every year.
