Sorry you are seeing so much spam lately.  We are working without the spam filter and it's challenging to keep up with the spammers.

Help us out by reporting spam posts immediately, rather than replying to them, if you know the posts are spam.

Thanks!

By the way, if I report those posts to a moderator, who gets informed? Is that helpful at all?

The spam traffic at the board is so heavy that we need everyone to help with the reporting.  When admins are here, we can delete spam accounts quickly, most before they post.  However, when we're not around, it's up to mods and members to report posts and spammers.  So, yes, please, members keep reporting.  It makes a big difference in how your board operates to have the spam accounts and posts taken down quickly.

Thanks to everyone who is reporting spam posts.  We're killing them as soon as we're aware of the posts.  It's a big job lately, but I think the board is staying clear of spam posts, if not spammers.
