    Yeah, the new platform does not have the spam protection the old one had. I already expressed my concerns to the admins to see what they can do.

    Not helpful to have a 25-30 second wait between sending spam reports.

    They're looking into it now. I'm not deleting anymore until they add a protection, I've deleted around 400 threads, and there are other new 400 threads :'(

    The admin added a function to delete spam faster, but they can't be stopped just yet. Another protection needs to be added. But it's easier to keep everything under control now.

    Simple, basic restrictions such as you can't post URLs/Videos until x number of posts would greatly reduce the spambots.

    I'm pretty sure it's possible to prevent it before it even comes to that. No need for a restriction like that, when it's possible to prevent bots from even becoming "members" in the first place.

    Really? Where? Can you report it?

    I thought we were getting most of it pretty quickly
