Forum: Hide Spam ? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello Administrators,

    Would it be possible to hide spam messages in the forum, instead of showing them as 'reported as abuse' ? I have noticed that these messages come before older discussions that may not have been closed/answered yet.

  • Quentin V,

    I'm neither an administrator nor a moderator. My experience is that when a post is marked as abuse it is normally removed within a day or two depending on the level of abuse. With regard to quicker removal, there is blatant abuse and inadvertent "abuse". I have seen some posts that were marked as abuse when in fact there was no abuse but simply a user who posted to the wrong forum.

    On my browser, posts are listed in order of latest input, whether initial posting or a reply so depending on traffic in the forum, undesirable posts get pushed down in the stack. To me that's acceptable.

    John
