    Moderators Please remove all this TV stuff

    Shop Now
    I'd really like to be able to report these streaming TV threads as spam but there isn't a button to do this. It's really irritating and I don't understand why it isn't being removed.

    Please remove the spam thank you.

    There are more spammers than moderators. When you kill a spammer two grow back in its place.

    Little black triangle on the lower left is how you report spam. Click on it.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Thanks honeybuns and surely mike_h it's down to attitude from the Management and users. If we make it known we don't want spam ..hey it's a Primal website ;0 then surely they should remove it but if we say nowt then the weeds take over the plantation

    I've been a moderator on websites before now and if it's leapt on and the spammers removed they get the message. I have seen a post by a spammer putting up TV show stuff on Primal and no one challenges him/her and sez hey WTF dude get rid or get off.

    I think the problem is relative to the amount of traffic and this is a busy forum. I don't think our registration fees cover enough staff time for immediate removal.

    They need to implement IP filters, a better captcha, and email confirmation of new members ( I can't remember if they do this). Someone mark this post as spam, so it might get read =).

    There doesn't need to be staff. Users will moderate this forum for FREE. Why this is the only forum on the internet that doesn't do that I have no idea. I have mentioned this before. MDA is like the wild west of forums...NO RULES!!!!!!

    LOL, I can't tell if the two spammers above are trolling us or if they are just bots.
