    Re: slow reaction to spamming

    It's a problem if it happened more often - this is the first time I've seen it. You're making it seem like it's a daily occurance - and also like penis images just 'pop up' on the site as an add, or in a thread titled 'look at my bird pictures' or something to that sort. In case you didn't notice, it came in a thread titled 'anal gay sex' or something like that. The way I look at it, most kids will not click on that thread title, and therefore, not see the image. The kids that do click on it and see it are also more likely to find it elsewhere if they really want to.

    Re: slow reaction to spamming

    Right, and look at what else you typed - "I usually miss them." Meaning, oh, guess what - mods do their job and remove them!

    It was a frickin hour - if you're so concerned, maybe you shouldn't allow your daughter on the internet. Or at least not this site, since it obviously is overflowing with porn... we're all so sick here of course.

    Re: slow reaction to spamming

    Are we all just bickering to see how long it takes a mod to close this thread? lol.

    people are too used to immediate response.... its hard to forget that we are all in this world together.

    do your part & use the 'report post' button if you do happen to see something inappropriate. The mods will do their part as soon as possible.

    Longest I've ever seen trolls cause problems was about 2hrs... and that was in the middle of the night. The guy just wanted to see how many posts he could get before he was banned. Kinda sad life, really. His posts were only about 2 words each... nothing vulgar.

    Look, the internet isn't safe. No site where people can post publicly is going to be 100% free of things you may not want your child seeing or reading.

    We hardly get any spam posts like that, and the hardly last on the forum.

    Maybe you should just be sure your daughter knows not to click threads with titles like "gay anal sex" rather than hoping someone else will protect your daughter from the dangers of the internet.

    Re: slow reaction to spamming

    I posted my thoughts on this in the sister thread.

    As I said there, I understand that you are upset, but we did exactly what we should have done to handle it.

    There might be measures we could take that would make it a little more difficult for someone to pull this off. However, lots of people have time on their hands to do innane things, so it wouldn't eliminate it. And so far -- *knocks on wood* -- it has not been a serious issue here.

    Maybe, instead of teaching your daughter how to safely use the internet, you could instead teach yourself patience.

    Re: slow reaction to spamming

    Well, Hew, it seems the majority of us are happy with the moderators on this forum and the way things work here. If you are so unhappy here and happy with the ways that other forums work, you clearly have choices...

    I hate the "OMG its a penis!!! Shocking!!!" type of attitude. Big freaking deal, it is the internets we can't control them!
