You know what, maybe it's not so bad; I need to be constantly reminded of great deals on tramadol, ya know? Never know when you might need to buy some from a shady online retailer... Shocked

but what if we just simply asked what letter in the English alphabet comes after c? Would it be programmed to know this? But at the same time, would FootFungas be able to answer it correctly?


Just because SOME of us are'nt as mentally gifted as you is no reason not to let us join.

Just an idea here.

But there's a possibility with phpbb (the forum this place uses).
to add a button to each message wich can report spam.

Once this button has been clicked by several users the message is marked as spam and as such deleted.

Not sure about the control in this one, but it would be wise to set it that at least a certain amount of users have to click this button (eg: 7) to prevent normal messages to be deleted.

And offcourse the people who get such a button should be regular and trustworthy users (for instance they should have made at least 500 posts here)

I would even go further, and suppose one vote at least, to enable posting in the forums. Otherwise the spammer could post some crap for posting ... or is my mind too criminal Shocked
