I think all of these new spamming accounts are being brought on here from the Polls section. I don't think it was ever this bad.

I don't nessisary think that that's a reason to get rid of the polls section. There are some pretty good only pollers in discomforting and IO. The spammers are just finding an easier way of getting here. The only Spam guys I've seen in the polls section is the Ultamate Bob and the Fun dip guy.

The Economics forum and the Health Forum are still littered with spam.

I would destroy even the so called "good" pollers if it meant the poll section as a whole was gone.

No such thing as a good poll.

Mods don't seem to pay attention to the polls section. If a person excessively spams the polls, he will be banned but the spam polls never seem to get removed unless they involve bad language.

Users usually just post on the regular forums and the spam forums just go to the second page, never to be seen again. However, since very few people post on the Health forum, the spam forums just float on the first page.

Oh, so basically the health forum and the economic forum have gone to pot?

At least the Economics forum has potential to be active again, but no one really cares about the Health forum in general.

I think the ease of joining is more responsible for spam than the polls section; captcha or similar would be a better solution perhaps.
