What does it take to get spam posts taken down?

    This one's been up since last Monday. It was reported on the same day, so whoever is getting the thread alerts seems to have ignored it, or missed the (fairly obvious) spam link.

    True - but if it's interesting threads you want then you're in the wrong section anyway.

    And again today, the Adidas saga in the buying section. The impression is that nobody gives a toss about this forum any longer, which is just as well, as most of the more informed and interesting folks no longer post here. I am not sure if the idea behind it is to terminate it... it feels that way. The more interesting part of the forum is the Cafe', where they discuss politics, mainly... which is great advertising for a cycling forum...

    I have started to call people names, just to see if I get warned or banned, but nothing, nobody cares...

    FFS, if you don't care about it, sell it to another publisher who actually might

    Got to agree with Ugo here (apart from the name-calling bit). If Immediate's objective is to run the forums onto the rocks, then you are succeeding spectacularly.

    ...and have a look at the crudcatcher. The word sophomoric comes to mid with the unfortunate connotation that it also implies some form of education.

    The problem is that they can't afford staff to look after the forum, at the same time they don't trust users to moderate it, as it happens in virtually every other forum. The result is that everything goes: spammers, carpet salesmen, timewasters, schizophrenics, megalomaniacs, self confessed paranoids... the lot
