    Spam Control


    In the last 24 hours SEO chat has come under heavy spamming from this user called 'vicky48'.
    This moron plagued the categories with escort service posts. This person appears to be an Indian.

    Could I suggest allowing some Mods from India who would be in a better position to purge any spam before it becomes a menace.
    I reported the spam threads in the morning. If it could have been stopped then and the user account deleted right away then we could have controlled it.
    This could cover the time difference pretty effectively.

    This may not be surprising but amusing they are. SEO Chat ranking for 'call girls in mumbai'.

    Hi NewDelhi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We try to cover the forums as much as possible, but you are right - sometimes things slip by. Having mods in different time zones would help to cover any gaps.

    Many of the mods stopped checkin in, so there really isn't too many left that tidy the place up.
    The forum I usta run still has approx. 45 mods, and the spammers don't stand a chance.
    more is always better.
