    so when does this get implemented?
    Zip-Lock? gnomad?
    It's funny, most of the suggestions and comments go unimplemented even if there's a lot of user that feel it would be a good idea....

    Peace,

    All of the mods get an email when someone clicks the 'report post' button. I get them every morning from DP. Not a day goes by that he hasn't found one that should be deleted.

    I think the observation about mainly US mods is a good one. We've got quite a few mods and even if I don't have time to read all the posts (like lately), I always jump over to the reported posts and take them down. I usually ban the users as well.

    A little more diversity is probably the solution here. I'll post up a link to this thread in the mods forum so zip/gnomad/fiberoptic will see it.

    7 users out of 34938 is not a lot. 0.02 of 1 percent.

    I vote no to the idea of allowing anyone to disable accounts. I vote yes to recruiting more admin. I'm in the US, work 3rd shift, and am on all night long from work. I'm up for crippling spammers, I don't want/need access for anything more.

    Id say there is a problem here with lack of moderation, and not just spammers.
    Is this where the witty comment goes?

    Suggestion for spam control assistance

    Let a few designated people have the ability to lock a user from posting for a short period, say 24 hours. No priviledge to delete posts or lock threads or anything else. Just lock down a user's posting priviledge for 24 hours.
    The threads would be there as evidence to back up the reasoning for locking down the user.
    Moderators/Administrators can act appropriately.

    I think it would be a pretty simple task to remove the priviledge from a user that abuses the power, even once.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I'm sure you have got a few from me too.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    Yeah. Sorry for that. I'm not gonna take credit for the idea.
    I honestly didn't understand your suggestion when I first read it but we're definitely thinking the same way.

    I'm fortunate to be able to work from home and actually be able to log onto the forums several times a day....
    Why not put my addiction to this place to good use.

    It takes dedication, hard work and a hell of a lot of free time to generate a 4300 post count in two years!
