Could I make the suggestion that the posts made by spammers that make a feeble attempt to address the topic to give themselves legitimacy... be removed altogether instead of just having the link edited out?
They add nothing to the conversation at all and the obvious fakeness of the sentiment disrespects the original poster. Plus it must be easier for the moderators to just zap the whole post as well!

Most of the time I follow right along the lines of your suggestion. Recently Mrs. M has been picking up a lot of the spam that happens when I'm not on (to which I want to thank you Mrs. M for keeping so alert) so I'll go ahead and take a closer look at the posts she's edited and see if their content merits saving.
Hi Mods, Spaming in the Updates and News forum by yangjin. Thanks August
August, the Updates forum cannot be accessed by any of the mods. Only TN can remove the spam there. So thanks, but we will have to wait for him to intervene. ~ ANANYA.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Ananya,
