I think that time has been and long gone. And I can say that just based alone on the spam of the last 24 hours, let alone the last few years.

Well, I think we can all see once and for all just how effective the "let's wait and see" policy has been. :roll:

We will endeavour to keep on top of it and make the forum what it should be - a place just for Rubik's fans and not a market for "muscle enhancement" or worse!! :D

did you ban rubiks god :)

Well. that's it for me. I'm just fed up with the lack of action against spammers. I offered to help, but there's still no action.

If anyone wants me they can find me at one of 2 real cubing forums:

http://rubiksmaster.com and http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/

Hi borginator2

I think it is a little unfair to say there has been no action. We have been taking off all the spam every single day. So far we have deleted and banned over 50 of them. We had hoped after the initial new website launch it would begin stop but sadly it has not.

I agree there is still too much, the problem is that to completely stop it we will have to limit access to new users. Maybe we will just have do that.

I will contact you directly to talk about it because we would welcome your help if you are still willing to give it a try.

Sorry. I realise you guys are trying to stay ahead of the spam, but the fact is that for every post you delete, a dozen new ones spring up.

I will chat with you directly via email on this.

I care and if we all have a negative attitude then of course the new efforts will fail. I think that we need to give it time say until April next year before we judge and in the meantime post a few replies and see if we can each get a few people back and active. Great oak trees spring from tiny acorns and all that : )

Agreed. On the same subject here, I'd just like to say that I have been asked to become a moderator here so I can delete problem posts as they crop up.

We'll get back to you as new stuff happens.

Cheers
