I don't need your "advice" ...….. Is that blunt enough?

Well you are going to get it! Stop being rude and moderate instead of making excuses. I have never seen such conduct from a moderator.
A lot of people are fed up with the spam. Your approach is not helpful in the least.
Finally (read other posts by members), you may end up moderating an empty forum.

It is a personal choice and optional to be annoyed regarding spam. It exists. I experience it on many sites and manageable by 1. Turning off notifications for new posts. 2. Using the mark as read button, after reading those chosen.
Use sites by choice for free, or don't. Enjoy.

Thanks Richard,

I need a little help from members in support of my requests to Admin to re-instate the check for new members.
I am trying my best to delete the spam. I have banned another 6 this morning. It is quite a time consuming laborious process. I am not looking for sympathy, but I certainly don't need abuse from Old_Geezer.

rapidcool, thank-you for your efforts. I am sure this situation will be resolved given time.
Being angry with spammers or with moderators not doing what YOU want is not necessary.

This is a small select forum where I have learned a lot.

I hope it stays off the radar and the moderator continues with his efforts to weed out spammers and angry key board warriors.

If I can help in any way let me know. For now I just ignore their posts and mark all read after visiting the site.
I feel sad for the people who have been forced (for the want of a better word) to try and make living by posting click-bait.

You could ask Admin_Steve to re-instate the check for first post by new members and appoint another moderator. Hopefully he will be back on line soon Posted Image

It seems we are not the only Audi site to be plagued with Spammers>

Hi,

I have received more than one message like this on my mobile from Audi A5 forum. I have contacted their moderator twice, but zero response
