What is the mechanism of spam deletion? (post #69986)

Robyn,  We seem to be getting a lot of pseudo-content which just serves as a way to include a link to someone's website.  I've been clicking "INAPPROPRIATE" when I see these-- do you have an intern or someone who can come around and clean house? Given that the traffic on the site is already so slow, it is quite disheartening to see a slew of new posts, all spam.

Cheers, Jen

P.S. Although I admit the latest one was fairly clever-- I wonder how many other places he/she posted that bit about the "forum insider".

This spammer's comments have been removed, along with a few other recently-reported spam. Thanks for the heads up.

No sooner do you get some spam removed then there is a new crop, courtesy of Mcdaddy and Jem777.  I guess it would be fruitless to shut down the accounts of spammers.

Hi Pie,

The most recent spam has been cleaned-up, but do let me know if you see anything else. Thanks again.

...in the Kitchen Equipment discussion-- just a little pseudocontent link-spam for some kitchen scale.
