    The live stream spam is not slowing down, still have to moderate/delete/ban 1 post at a time.

    It's easier to do this without additional posts being added to the thread. The "eff you", "eff off" and "your mother is a democrat" responses, I agree with, empathize with and occasionally enjoy.

    But it does add a couple steps to banning the OP. And allow for error. In the last week I've accidentally banned TJ twice and Theory three times. Brought Rick right back of course, had to think about TJ

    Admin is aware of the spamming but a solution is not forthcoming.

    Pls vent here rather than on the spam posts.

    Thanks for info Dave, I'll be sure to bite my tongue from now on rather than comment.

    As was mentioned earlier the post moratorium probably won't work as some (both legitimate members and spammers) create accounts without posting for some time, but the quarantine may work… I'm sure all of this is easier said than done and is not a quick and simple solution.

    I just spam'o the original post. Don't find the additional posts add any steps. Hope I didn't ban anyone. Well, almost anyone.

    Live stream spam.

    What I have seen on some of the other forums is a step where new joins are required to contact the admin with an email requesting they join. Just to confirm they are real people. Or only allow new members to post in the newbi section until a mod allows them access to the wider forum. May confuse the algorithm for a little while

    Brian, On my fon the android app wants to ban the last poster, not the OP.

    Couple things that have been put on the table:

    Change the Canada question

    Not allow links for first x number of posts

    New members request membership, approved by mod before posting

    I would think any/all of these would be an easy day for a computer wienee. But I aren't one.

    Any other ideas welcome.

    OK. I guess if I always read the first sentence as "OK, someone is offering a knife of ca. 7 sun length", i'm here too often

    Problem is that would only catch this recent livestream thing, there's times when the spam post is a bunch of nonsense computer text or foreign language
