    A Thank You to our Mods.

    From the looks of the "Who's Online" over the last couple of days I know our Mods. have been very busy keeping the spammer off the site. I know little about what they do but I'm certain it's a lot more then we all realize.
    Thank you Mods. for all you do.

    Re: A Thank You to our Mods.

    I used to be on a great frog forum; probably the best one I'd found, but I had to stop getting on it because of all the spam. You couldn't read the actual posts without also seeing five others that were pornographic. I went back to it a couple months later and it had actually shut down because of this. idk what they do either, but I'm glad that's never happened here.

    I second Steve's sentiment. As a mod elsewhere I fully understand how it's a thankless position, the best ones usually go unnoticed.

    I don't remember if it's the same here but a good way to combat spammers we've used elsewhere is to have all new accounts need to be approved by a mod or admin. A minor inconvenience but can save everyone countless hours of work. It's usually pretty easy to tell who the spammers are by the account info. Just a thought.

    I second these sentiments. I knows there's plenty of times that I'm sitting here being bored and nosey, and check out the "Welcome to our newest member" area on the bottom of the forum home page, and looking at the profile it's obvious its just some kind of advertisement/spam....


    Thank you guys for keeping the forum clean

    That is done here also. I'm glad they can't post their crap on here before it is found/noticed.

    Speaking of new members, here's one online right now working on their profile. Hasn't made any posts yet.  View Profile: arrackiva - Garter Snake Forum

    And another View Profile: czgafatol - Garter Snake Forum

    Judging from the ICQ I.D.'s given for these two, (among other things) I think they're spammers.
