I don't know whose monitoring this forum, but lately there have been a LOT of random posts - from maxmara2. Here is a link to the posts I am talking about;

search.php?author_id=8732&sr=posts

Is there a better way to keep spammers and Trolls off of this board?

Thanks, wickedhappy. The spammer is now gone. For the most part, the system keeps out 99% of the spam, but now and then someone can slip thru the net like that. Thanks for the headsup!

Gone now - zapped by me.

If you come across a post you think is in ANY way suspect, dodgy, odd - just hit the 'report post' button, thats the red exclamation mark you'll see on the right at teh top of each post when you are viewing the thread.

That reports the thread to me and Admin and then we can figure out whether its spam or dodgy in some other way and deal with it.

Wickedhippy, Here's another way: when you see span or a post by a troll, click on the exclamation point that's on the top right in a white triangle to report it, so Emmabeth can get rid of it! :wink:
