    I always report them because being in the UK I am on your night duty and retired so around quite a lot.

    Edited to add that when I do report them nothing is ever done for quite some time.

    I know it is very annoying.
    Unfortunately there is not always someone online when you report these.
    We are taking care of the matter very seriously, trying to find out a solution to drastically decrease the spam.
    In the meanwhile, please, keep reporting these and be patient.

    Again, as i said, you can PM me at any time and if i can i will take care of the issues or report em directly to Olivia.

    They seriously need to limit new accounts to a "waiting period" before being able to post.................

    I agree. This stuff does not typically get to me but it's been so long without any apparent solution. The spam is getting to the point where it completely takes over the forums.

    one forum I used to post on had specific moderators with limited powers that just worked to clean up the spam. They didn't do any actual moderating, they just deleted spam posts.


    Well if that is possible then i volunteer. I work night five days a week. Just give 2 or 3 people the ability to delete these spam threads and it would really help.

    I would too. About 75% of my time spent on MFP fourms is during the night shift, (like right now ^_^) and I wouldn't want full MFP mod rights dealing with headaches from forum drama but would gladly volunteer just to clean up the spam.

    I reported as I was annoyed too. I also tried posting in some other posts to bring them down on the introduce yourself board. They are out of control! It always seems to happen at this time of night and it always seems to be this babalovemarriage crap!

    According to Olivia (moderator), he's not the night mod. He's supposed to keep an eye on the MFP Italian community. Maybe there's another night mod...I have no clue who that person is.
