yipeng024 thought this would be a good place to post spam.  I have corrected that thought.

Well, I went on vacation for a week and the spammers gave me a break and didn't post their crap while I was gone.  Thanks spammers!

The ones I noticed where like Asians from NY based on username and spam content. Maybe Lin has them reading the boards instead of spamming for money. Anyway glad you had a good vacation idchafee.
In the long run.It's better to have a bad outcome doing things right.Than a good one doing things wrong.

    idchafee, I was wondering if people have to log in to read the forum. If they are not posting it seems a waste. Of a lot a interest to people with out all the hassle of signing up. Maybe revenue reasons to require? Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I believe that to read THIS forum that yes, they have to log on.  To read the others, I'm not sure.

On a related note, there have been several obvious spammers that have signed up lately but not posted.  I have held off deleting their accounts until they post.  If they post, I can grab their IP address and ban the address, which will make it harder for them to sign up with another name.

   I forgot about spam. But if people weren't signed up they couldn't post or be tempted to. If the team image is the reason for limited viewing. I would do the democratic thing and let the random stuff appear but correct it so as to not let false slander. Not censorship but a counterpoint reply. Our differences make us stronger in the democracy of ideas and eventually accuracy should prevail.

As far as I'm aware, the only stuff that was ever moderated by the team was stuff that could have potentially ended up in court.  I have never edited anything other than spam.

I think the reason for making you log in to view is that some of the more basic bots don't create logins, they just post as Guest
