Someone is posting garbage on this forum.

Go look at the "Latest Replies" page -

to be cleaned up and the offending users deleted from the forum. You also need to implement some blocking methods to vet new users.

BUT since I've found no one actually moderates/monitors the forum, it may be weeks or months before someone takes action.

I find it hilarious that a blog support forum, using the blog product, is being bombarded by spam.

Nothing to worry about. It's business as usual.

We get this every day, as every other forum with some visibility on the internet does/

We kill the spammers in one click and all their posting disappear with them. Their email gets blocked from future registrations and in some cases we block the IPs etc.

If you want to help, you are welcome to click on "report this user" on the offending user profiles.

Errr?

Just thought I'd let you know.

As to going to the profile of each spammer to report it, that's as step more than I'm willing to do - how about a report link per message and reply?

But, perhaps that makes it too easy and legitimate messages would be reported.

Have you seen the "Spam vote" below each reply?

Does that work for you?

(we still need to add the same for each original message -- work in progress)
