Re: Great to see POL working
Yes, the spam post firepa63 referred to WAS in the dealer section with yesterday's date (June 21st), but it's gone now. That's why you couldn't find it. I guess somebody else spotted it & took care of it in the wee hours of the morning. There are 2 sections that don't have the spam reporting icon (the "Dealers" section & the "Announcements" section) if you want to check those once in a while. But I started in the "Help" section a thread entitled " Moderator, check here for un-reportable spams" just to alert somebody of any spams that were posted into either of those 2 sections. Last night though, when I saw the spam post we're talking about now, I was too tired & didn't have time to post about it in my own thread.
I'm glad you have taken the interest again (when you can spare the time) to try to help keep this board operating smoothly. We sure could have used your help a few months ago when it was common to see 300, 400, or even 500 spam posts clogging up the works before somebody would do something. The registration & initial post checking seems to be what was needed then to kill the spammers in their tracks because one of them could (& did) register & post 100 spams within a 24 hour period. Firepa63 & I even PM'd Pete to try to alert him what was going on & I begged him to make use of the advice one member (Swanny) was offering. So many of our good & longtime members left here & went over to PriusChat because of it. I can only hope that they will eventually check back in & see that everything is now in control again so that maybe they will be willing to come back & be regular contributors again. Those of us left here don't have all the answers (but we try)---there was so much wisdom & knowledge with those that we lost. COME ON BACK, GUYS & GALS!!!
P.S. By the way, just for future reference, does anybody know the (screen) name of the other "Site Administrator" (who apparently co-owns this site with Pete because he's) also from Endicot, NY? I noticed it one time in his avatar, but I didn't make any note of it. He would have been a good alternate contact when Pete apparently wasn't around to get his own PM's.
P.P.S. Never mind, I just found it. It was a moderator named "Jeff" [who is in the "PriusOnLine" section (just below the "Help" section)] who started a thread entitled "New Users/SPAM".
