The longer this goes on the more im starting to think this is a concerted effort to drive users off the site onto others.

Wonder if TUF can be talked to, to paas out admin privileges to people and let them handle the spam and spam accounts. I'd volunteer, and I abandoned Facebook cause I was sick of the drivel so i got extra time :)

Max still does put quite a bit of time to delete spam, that said, he is only one person, and from my understanding the spam comes so fast that it is nearly impossible to keep up with, even if there were multiple people consistently deleting spam. Max doesn't have the ability to pass on mod privileges, and if he did I am sure he would jump on electing mods to help delete stuff in certain forums. However check out the sports forum sometime, that forum is literally impossible to delete spam fast enough, even if you had 5-6 people doing it. There is multiple threads created every minute. Soon the rest of the forums will end up like that. Also the process to delete spam is pretty difficult Max once explained. It takes a few minutes to delete each post/thread.

Oh, well you learn something new every day lol. Either way, it looks like some of it is being handled cause certain threads are relatively clean, but its so much it's gonna take a a few people or even more to keep on top of :S

I do know about it. Whoever is responsible I just want to make clear, it isn't me.

Maybe instead of deleting spam posts, I wonder if it would be easier to just change the site so that the admins could ban spammers and all of their posts would disappear with them?

But I'm not a programmer, so I have no idea how feasible that would be.
