Spam

Everyone,

Please stop wrecking threads.
Current and valid threads and queries are getting turned into junk.
This is wasting forum bandwidth, costing people money.
It's putting off members too - what would you think if you were new to the site and saw loads of topics with a touch of info at the start and three pages of pantomime script afterwards? It devalues the forum and wastes peoples time.
It takes me hours just to look at the relevant sections for cinq/sei, I don't usually have time to read the general sections any more - partly to do with this trend.

Please keep on using the 'person before me' and 'DIY story' threads, or the new 'rooms' that are cropping up. At least those who don't want to waste hours know to avoid these ones if they wish.

I'm gonna make shedloads of work for myself here, but please 'report to moderator' when these topics get spammed and I/we can do something about it.

Pete.

I agree. I spend time looking at the active topics and can't find anything worth reading. Eventually I get p*ssed off and move on.

Agreed. Some days you can't tell what the interesting posts are because they get hidden under a pile of rubbish.
