Is there any way to ban or block these spammers from SM? One now and then we just ignore but it has gotten so much worse. The forum is a mess.:angry: Thanks for your help.

These are spambots - not people posting but computer programmes people made to spam places like forums.

On a forum I used to moderate on we would just delete them as soon as they were placed and ban the account. There were enough moderators that were regular posters to catch and delete the spam pretty much as soon as it appeared so it wasn't left there for hours or even days annoying people, clogging up the forum and left for someone who didn't know any better to click on the links and possibly cause harm to their computer. From what I know SM doesn't have any mods now only admin who aren't very regular posters and not online much? Sorry if I am wrong but that's what I see.

Orla, you nailed it, girlfriend. NOBODY (moderator, I mean) is here anymore. I wish they'd allow someone to moderate here again. We need it bad.

Yeah, I think SM needs a few moderators - even one would be great but obviously one person can't be online most of the day - this forum needs a few people to keep an eye on spam etc and be able to remove it as soon as it appears.

Yung must be away on vacation or maybe had a family emergency but it poses a problem for the forum whatever the case is. I hate how it has turned into just a business now. Just being honest.

I also agree that we need a few forum mods...between having a few mods, even posts on the weekend could be removed which would be great.

I was thinking Yung must be on vacation too. But his light is on and it shows him as being online. Maybe he's working on it right now. I can't take it anymore, so I think I'll go bake a cake!

I couldn't agree more. This is home and extended family to me. :heart::heart: FB is just another social media site.
