How about taking on one of the regulars as an extra mod to close the gap ?

I have an early slot of time online / skiving when the missus is out with the dog every morning when this spam appears & also have mod & admin experience (joomla & vbulliten) .

If no one else who is a regular in this time slot when spam appears steps forward, anyone ?

People like Teloc and Skydog will never be able to write threads...it would take some members years to get that many posts!

I believe the solution lies in the spam reporting mechanism......When a user sees a spam post, they report it via a form.

When the form is submitted, perform a check to determine if the post being reported was made by a member who joined on the same date the post was made and reported on the same date. If that is the case, automatically delete the post, lock or temp ban the poster's account and send a message to mods or admin who could either reverse the decision by unlocking the account, or delete the account, ban their ip, burn their villiage......whatever.

The point being, the post would disappear once reported and the offending account locked. Final actions though are queued for mods and admins, and only posts made the same day a user joins are affected.

Cons?
Most are just spammers, but if a genuine newbie posts their first post, an existing member in a fit of evilness could report the post for the sole purpose of getting their account locked and post deleted. A notice could/should be added on the reporting form against such a dastardly practice with threats of temporary or permanent bans, drive-by fistings by one very angry clown, chronic dandruff..........i.e, use this power wisely.

Just a thought. :cheers:
