I noticed that myself. It's rare they even manage to slip in. Certainly the spam didn't stick round long before being zapped. Bravo!

And now for a peek behind the scenes. This graphic represents only one page of what we greenies see when we view the General Discussions forum. The grayed-out threads are deleted efforts by spammers to spam us. Although dreams had by far the most hits on this page, I believe poohbear_nc had the most spammer hits on the previous page, but we all spend way too much time zapping these vermin.

Well the jpeg just goes to prove (IMO) what an outstanding job the mods do in keeping the boards here at MR free of spam. I've seen message boards over at yahoo that are supposed to be about a given topic and instead are nothing but spam, spam, spam and I'm sure the spammers are unrepentant about filling the boards with it. Not at MR though. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Bravo!

Over the weekends, the "mod view" of the forums, esp. the General Discussion forum, strongly resembles Swiss cheese -- with very large holes.

What's amazing from a purely user point of view is how RARE it is to log on and see any spam that needs reporting at all. I caught two today (same "2 post" guy, same post, two forums) that I reported, and by the time I'd logged back on, they were both gone. And I'm sure the spammer was evicted, with prejudice.

I agree. The mods at MR do an outstanding job of zapping that junk.

Thanks all.

A little thing I do sometimes when there are so many "holes" on the forum pages; I will just not log on and just read the forum until I notice a spam post. When that happens, I will log on to remove the spam and then log off again. It just makes it easier/faster to scroll the forum if I don't have to deal with so many 'greyed out" threads during the heavy spammer times.

I too wish to offer my thanks. I have learned a great deal about my Kobo Vox in the few days that I have been a member.
