Have you seen the junk in road cycling at the moment? And I'm not talking about the chatter regarding thin wheels and tight shorts...

AS soon as possible? Girlono post count is now 37 across all the Forum. If this is the best the forum can do in terms of stopping these posts then it suggests it wont be long before the spammers and bots take over.

I am on plenty of other forums which don't get ANY of these posts.

Something's wrong here in BR land.

Tell you what. Let us make this a subscription forum where we pay for it then we can justify complaint.

Worrying about moderation - take a look at the Cake Stop - it is probably illegal.

Go for it and watch the membership drop faster than a very fast thing. There is nothing here which cannot be obtained from several other free (and advertising lighter) cycle forums. The value for a a regular individual is getting to know other online persona. That just takes time to read and post.

Not sure what's illegal about The Cake Stop. It's pretty mundane as far as I can see. Even the The Bottom Bracket is reasonably tame compared to many other websites.
