Question Spam Bots...

I'm new to the forum. I've seen a lot of spam bots join. Most forums I've joined don't usually have that problem. Is it vBulletin (assuming the forum engine is vBulletin) or not enough cash? I'm just curious. I don't mind reporting posts it just looks so cluttered...

Re: Spam Bots...

The bigger the forum, the bigger the problem, the more it attracts spammers.
Our moderators will catch spam right after it occurs, but of course, depending on the time of day. We will soon be adding a few more moderators, we are just evaluating the prospects currently to make sure we pick the best people to be moderators. When you see spam, please keep the spam reports coming, they help. You only need to report 1 post per spammer, when we clean it up we will clean all their posts. Thank you!
