Why hasn't anything been done to prevent spammers from advertising football streaming? Are we powerless in this instance?

#2 Posted by BumpyBoo (9377 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't we use registration captcha's?

@BumpyBoo: That's what I was wondering. But the obvious way around it is using real people to spam us.

@Kal'smahboi: Well if we can't stop them, shouldn't we at least make things really annoying for them? It would be a start ^_^

@Kal'smahboi: what spammers are you talking about on this site?

#6 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3519 posts) - - Show Bio

@BumpyBoo: That's my plan :)

@Z3RO180: Since football season started we've been getting threads linking to illegal game streaming.

@Kal'smahboi: hmm.....cant you get an admin to just band th spammers ip adress there fore permanently accesing the site.

@Z3RO180: I figure if that could be done, it would have by now. Aren't there ways to get around that? Like IP address generator programs and other anarchy?

Sounds like it'd be the same person or same group of people, the moderators will do the right thing like they have a good habit of doing, and maybe..permanent ban? Idk.

Why can't we vote for moderators, that would be a more sensible option for the community since when have a degree of insight about the personalities and ethics of the users who become mods, and a another thing I think Comic Vine should adapt is over a period of time of unresponsiveness a mod should be demoted instead of just holding up a slot.

#27 Posted by protectyournose (908 posts) - - Show Bio

The Mods and Staff will do what they can. Just ban the users account and go on about their day until they find another spam thread, then they can just ban that account and delete that thread. Just flag them whenever you see them. I would like to think too, that a person would have something better to do with their time than to spam these forums, but I myself gave up on that along time ago.

Trolls might have a lot of people who like them, or people could make new accounts to vote for themselves.

The same reason why fans don't get to vote for who gets into a sports hall of fame.

She doesn't have to give you reasons. Let's just put it this way. Mods vote on who we want to be new mods. We didn't vote for you. Leave it at that.

So, CM24 was right.

It Is a biased opinion?

Someone told me staff votes, Not Mods.

Just come to terms with the fact that you'll probably never be a mod. I'm not playing 21 questions with you. It's not your business anyway.
