I've sent messages and gotten no replies.

 

I just keep FAS and then do the warnings. Luckily the spammers take a break on the weekends. Mondays are the worst and some days arent so bad. I check almost every morning and delete what i see. The "dshas;asngagggn g;lkasklgakssakjg " post are the worst and so pointless.... Not sure why they do those.

I just dont think there are any active Admins that are implementing the latest in Spam controls. I am not seeing the same issues on other forums I moderate. I am going to reach out to Dave and see what he's up to these days. I know he was real active and on top of things and so was Tim. I believe Tim has moved on and is pretty busy working at Epic.

The spam is getting worse and nobody seems to be keeping on top of it. Does nobody care these days?

 

 

I think I'm the only one. I check most times daily but I do take days off. I havent checked in a few days and it shows. I am considering quitting the forums because of it. Other forums I moderate have better spam controls and I do not see but one a week versus 20+ daily.

I think this will be my final post on OCC. I wish the best for the people who are sticking around!

I has been a fun number of years, but the decline here is slow and not much new content to read.
