I'm ok to help follower on the de-spam task. I'm in Europe (France), and I check the forum at least each hour.

Only once an hour, sigh! I think I need a 12 step program (written in C++ of course)   ;)

I just read something about that.  Supposedly it's the same sort of addiction as a slot player.  Each time you visit it's like pulling the handle, and the jackpot is a good posting to reply to.

LOL, yeah I've seen email and web browsing described in the same way.

Slightly back on topic, I've had a couple of PMs regarding the level of discourse in a recent thread.

I'm keen for us to maintain our current community "policing" of standards and not become the local deputy but leave that role to the existing global moderators.

I see myself as a moderator purely for anti-spam purposes--is that the current expectation?

P.S. *ka-ching*

The neighborhood is usually quite orderly. I think theres a single exception at the moment taking up space and it would be a shame if it became the norm.

Personally I'm not here often enough to notice the goings ons, but the spam however is evident each time I visit. So in order of priority, I guess spam would have to be at the very top.

The new YaBB seems to have some anti-spam measures, but I'm not sure that they're working right.  I got a "you're posting too fast, you might be a spammer" warning on using the PREVIEW function, and PREVIEW also seems to change the POST button to WAIT.  Also, after getting the warning and going BACK to continue/retry, I was stuck at a page where neither the PREVIEW nor POST buttons seemed to work any more.  (Copy, back to forum, retry-reply, paste, wait, post... worked ok.)

Yeah, I've been having trouble with them as well.  We will keep tweaking the settings.

No.

And if I were thick in the head I'd immediately ask why and how an apache module influenced said button.  ::)
