All it would take is quarantining (temporarily removing from view) things marked as spam by x number different people. After review, they could be deleted and the MAC address banned. I'm sure there's a script that could be written to do the quarantine without involvement by the worker bees or Mark.
Nope, it's best not to add custom code to the forum's script - I learnt that the hard way, and repeatedly too! Such scripts are frequently updated (this one is already out of date as they're on version 5.0, this is 4.2, though possibly because they're using the "publishing suite" which includes a blog?) and any custom code is either lost or can cause real problems.
The thing to do is update frequently and use the features, but certainly vBulletin has some strong moderator goodies built in. There may well already be an auto-setting to block reported posts? If so they deffo need to switch it on,
Why is it that when members in good standing try to upload a pic from their computers, they wait (sometimes) weeks for it to be moderated, but a brand new registered "member" can post 10-15 new threads two minutes apart? Doesn't make sense to me, but I barely understand why planes don't fall out of the sky.
I love this board; I learn something new almost every day. :)

You can post pictures on the threads without needing moderator approval.
