I found spam on my journal thread this morning, and I just searched the forum for how to report it and couldn't find anything.....thanks for bringing up the subject.
there's at least one member they made into a mod
sure it's annoying, but i guess i don't see short blasts of spamming as a reason to quit the internet
Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.
If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

I don't know how many worker bees there are, but there are only maybe 3 volunteer mods that help clean up spam. They don't have any say in spam prevention. And yes, the worker bees/formal mods do not work on weekends.
Complaining about something that is free is funny. (Though I'm sure I've been guilty of it.)
Also, the mods have been doing a really good job at getting rid of spam lately, so I see this truck guy as a blip.
Solution: gather up 500 of your closest internet friends. Pitch/chip in for the software. Create a private board where no one new can post until approved by a mod. Voila! No ads; no spam. And for a few bucks every six months, there is peace and quiet.

joanie, when you say things like that in that tone i start getting a girlcrush
also, the spammers are real people. they aren't bots, they can and have jumped through the hoops mark put out to catch them and all he got for the trouble was more complaining
the problem could be much worse than it is
