Stop viewing spam threads!

PostPosted: Fri May 19, 2017 6:49 am

I think a long as they see people are viewing their threads, they'll keep spamming. Every time I see the crap posted, there is always a few clicks on them. Why? You know it's an asshole, posting stupid shit you don't want, or can't comprehend. Why even give them a "view"? That's what they want, and you're giving it to them! I bet if they post a couple rounds and don't get one view, they'd give up.

The "spam bump" posts are even more annoying than the spammers posts because you can see there is nothing new but spam at a quick glance. but when you post a "spam bump" it makes me think there is something new in that thread and wastes even more time looking at the spam bump spam post.

Agreed.

And some views are from people clicking on the thread to flag it.

I guess I can see that, I'm guilty of the spam bump post myself, I'll cease and desist!

Yeah, I wonder if the report the post actually does anything? Doesn't seem to get rid of them faster, if at all.

The report button should send an alert to the moderator team. Some board software has the option to keep a reported post hidden until the mods can address the report, don't know if we have this or not. Still gotta view the thread to hit the report button.

There is no moderator team. Just BH the man himself who we all love, but he isn't around here much anymore.
