Forum spam - Are there active moderators on this board?

Post by ninjarobot » Thu Jun 06, 2013 10:53 pm

So, I joined this board about a week ago and notice that there is a lot of obvious forum spam. (50% of the posts here appear to be spam).

Is there an active moderator on this board that cleans this up periodically? If not, I'd be happy to volunteer and clear out the spammers.

khal please make some people moderators. The spam really destroys this forum. With so much spam I am not sure if the forum helps or hurts Namecoin.

An official forum overrun by spam will almost certainly hurt namecoin. Because it signals it is abandoned and/or nobody cares.

Either the forum needs cleaning up or it should be shut down and all Namecoin conversation moved to the Namecoin Reddit at http://www.reddit.com/r/Namecoin/

I agree that the spam is an issue. I'm sure khal could find some trustworthy members to be moderators. (I'd rather the forum not be shut down....)
