False hits on spam posts
« on: October 25, 2010, 02:35:35 PM »
I've gotten a few complaints about some of your posts being marked as spam when they're not.

I went through an un-flagged about 15 messages or so that weren't spam.  Another 5 or so were spam, which is great to keep off the boards but may not be worth it if 3 times as many messages are incorrectly marked spam.

I'm seeking your input:  is it worth the hassle of removing links, etc. to get past spam if we can prevent a good amount of it as well.

I don't mind reporting it to you or the mods if it can be cleaned up relatively quickly.

It seems to me that it would be easier to give the mods the ability to address the issue when you are not around.

The forum software has the ability to assign banning privileges to moderators.  Just check that privilege.

UPDATE:

I've given our moderators the ability to manage the Ban list.
