    Exclamation This forum is temporarily moderated

    As the title states...

    Due to the overwhelming amount of spam hitting this particular forum, I have made the forum moderated. For the regular users of this forum, it simply means that there will be a short lag time between you making a post and it showing up (that time being equal to the time it takes a moderator to approve the post.)

    We are NOT moderating for content - only to stop the spammers from clogging up this forum.

    I expect this change to be temporary, as the spammers will find that their posts and attempts are useless and they should eventually give up.

    If you have questions or problems with this, please email or PM me. I will respond as soon as I can.

    Thanks!

    Sorry that it's necessary to moderate this part of the forum, but I'm glad tah the moderators are willing to take the time to filter the garbage prior to it's being posted.

    Thanks, guys, for the job you're doing.

    Actually, I'd like to give the spammers a great big thank you for mostly restricting their spamming to the DE section. It's very decent of them, and a clear indicator of their love and respect for straight razors!

    Da bomb made it so much harder for spammers to get through that we are no longer manually approving the posts in this forum.

    Yay SRP
    Find me on SRP's official chat in ##srp on Freenode. Link is at top of SRP's homepage

    Now that you mention it I haven't seen a spammer post on SRP in a long time. So long that I forgot they ever existed. Good job dwessell !
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Yes Robin, I know O_S has burned a lot of them down. I have reported my share too but it has been a long time since I've seen one of those pesky critters. Maybe I just missed 'em.
