That could be easily misused though. What do you mean 'modern basses are better'? Obviously spam, so I'll delete. :shrug:
I know you're kidding.

I'd trust any longtime member here to not be like that at all.

Well, how about the ability to HIDE spam posts, then if someone's thread was hidden, a mod can unhide it :)

My biggest problem is some of those spam post are really long and I think I'll read it later. I come back to find how I can improve my life and it's gone. :shrug:

Perhaps it would require several people to say yes. Fortunately there are enough people upset about reliving/fender/prices/vegetables to cover almost amythkng :)

Could we look at stopping members from making new threads unless they are supporting members? The vast majority of people here already are supporting members and the financial cost would dissuade spammers.
