Just curious, is there any end point to this business of moderator prereview of postings? I never had any problems with Fabian over on TES and posted over 500 times. I'm not clear on what the concern is.

It is the spammers. I took a couple of days at the beach and have deleted some 80 spammer accounts at this point and am still going. Some have really good porn pictures in the posts and others are just bad ads. The only sure way of preventing the spam is by having the posts held so none of the readers see them until they have been cleared by a moderator ... usually me.

Who said I didn't? :mrgreen: :- Actually there are some that make even me go "ewww" and I am ususally hard to shock.

I am just amazed that anyone would click a link to something like that randomly posted on the intetnet and not expecting to be hit with so much malware and virus attacks on their computer that they would personally need to take anti-virals.

You can buy some complete kitchens in the UK, tons of handbags all over, and even get roofers and dentists from some of these posts ... as if that would be a good idea.
