    I've seen the spam count. Not sure how that works, but kind of scary

    Well, the good news is it doesn't work anymore. We cleaned the member's list of spammers a few years ago, and now with updates etc. we don't have that problem. Sure, some still survive to post, but not for long.

    Nah, Hutch is good. It was just a mistake on my part.

    So what spam count are you looking at? If it's the data at the bottom of the page then that's just what's been done since the sight was hacked, rebuilt, and new spam filters about 1 1/2 years ago. Before that, about 5 or 6 years ago, when I became admin there were over 13,000 in the members list with approximately 600 new spammers joining every week. I started cleaning them out by myself, but couldn't keep up. That's when I asked for volunteers who I made moderators. Bill and Brad are still with us and a couple have moved on. Gravedigger was hell on wheels getting rid of spammers, but alas, life got the best of him and he bowed out.

    With the rebuild of the site things are a lot better but a few sneak thru the cracks once in a while. As for personally banning people? It takes a lot to rile me up. I understand that people have bow problems and need to vent. As long as it doesn't get too bad I allow it. Get too far out and I'll normally use the PM button with a polite warning. Only had to do that a few times. I'd have to check, but I think I've given the mods the go head on such matters. It's not like I want to rule or run rough shod here. It's not my site and it's not here for my glory. It's here for the members, and there are a lot of good ones, which makes me almost irrelevant at times.
