ME - Throwing in the towel.....

As many of you may or may not know, I've been a one man show cleaning up the DAILY spam around here. I have contacted the admins and the powers that be to try and get something like Captcha added to our registration protocol. I get no response from them.

I've tried to serve you guys willingly, and donate my time to your cause. It is with displeasure and sadness that I say that I am throwing in the towel. I can't justify spending 20 minutes to sift through the spam and take out the trash every time I log in.

Could I have a change of heart? Sure. But I need some help. I can't even add anyone as a mod or admin to help.... as I have had volunteers.


NOTE: Every time the spam gets deleted, it is me doing it.... and occasionally Rick (RangerSVT). Rick is busy as hell, and so am I. We don't have time to keep up with the spam. So, VSadmin, it's all on you now. I am glad to help, but you've got to help me.

Shane, I fell your pain. I went thru last week and changed my notifications to none so I don't have to get 30 e-mails a day from the spammers posting in the subscribed threads. I've pretty much washed my hands of this site. Its a shame, I made a few friends here, but the spam is out of control and I've gotten tired of sending you a pm just about every other day to clean it up. You're the only one who tried to keep it clean, and I agree, you need help.

Hey Shane, did you clean up the latest round of spam or did the admin finally do it?

Hi,

Apologies, I've been removing all spam I see for the past few days and will continue to do so. Thanks for keeping us posted.

Fergus, THANK YOU!

Is there any way we can add some verification's to the registration process to help combat the issue?
