Announcing our first ever SBF Spampion!

I would like to take a moment to recognize the exceptional efforts by one of our members here on SBF to make, and keep, our forums a place for high quality informational, educational and entertaining exchanges for all who visit SBF.

We've all seen the repeated assault on our forums by those wanting us to fall for their uninvited solicitation to have smoother skin, skinnier waistlines, bulgier muscles, more manly behavior, and many have addressed those assaults by reporting the posts. One member stands out above all others in the continued efforts to keep SBF free of those nasty Spams.

So, in recognition of outstanding Spam catching and reporting, I'd like to present the first, (and possibly the last and only) Spampion award to knu2xs for his outstanding and relentless efforts to spot and report spam posts so that they can be banned and cleaned from our forums. Just so far in this month of March, knu2xs has spotted and reported 60 spam posts so they could be dealt with.

Congratulations knu2xs. Keep up the good work and, on behalf of the staff and members of SBF, let me say, thank you. Please accept this trophy as our token of appreciation. We hope you will display it proudly. Thanks too to everyone else who has spotted and reported spam posts. Because the vigilance of all of our members, SBF continues to be a place of positive communications among our members and guests.

You and PS93 are neck and neck.

PS93 - 13
Coby7 - 11



And this is just from the first of this month!

You have to get up early or be on here late since they start popping up around 2am my time till about 8am and it would be earlier in the west.

On another site I am on they stop them before they even have a chance to type out their spam.
They are never allowed to even join the group.
They are nuked from the start.

Maybe some kind of change in the approval process would eliminate most of them?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I had mentioned first post being subject to monitoring. I bet they could even be narrowed down for review by the time the account is created. Another option might be one of those fields where you have to copy the weird letters into a text field. Spambots seem to have trouble with them. It is a little bit of extra challenge for a new user, but only once.
