Anyone doing spam control anymore?

Are there any moderators here anymore? Or have we been totally and completely abandoned? Spammers are beginning to take over the boards. The "report spam" button hasn't worked for months so there's no way to flag them.

I'd be happy to volunteer as a moderator if there's no one else.
Therese1 and bomega like this.
Wavycat, I've noticed the same thing! In my experience, this is what happens when a board has been abandoned. I have tried reporting the spam too, but like you say, the button doesn't work.

I know. At one point the entire first page of one of the sub-boards was only spam, but it looks like someone cleaned those out at least. It would be great if there was someone dedicated to managing that.

I had major surgery the end of February. There was a backup working the site while I was away. I am back now.

I am working on cleaning the spam. The mechanism to fix it wasn't working. Please continue to report it.
There is no way to report it, unless I just post here. Which I'm doing. Newbies/Introductions, Type 2 board, General Discussions - all of them have spam. Sometimes it's a new post, sometimes in a reply to other posts. I'm sure there's others, but those are boards I generally look at.

I hope you're doing better after your surgery. There really should be more than a single moderator though.
Janiegirl, the reports have been coming through since last week. I'm not sure why you cannot report them. Could you screenshot what happens when you try to report? I could have the techs take a look at it.

I'm sorry to hear about your surgery; I hope you are recovering OK.

I too have problems reporting spam. When I click on the megaphone icon to report it, I get a page that says:

Safari can't open the page "https://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/report.php?p=2385531". The error is: "cannot decode raw data" (NSURLErrorDomain:-1015)

Thank you Therese1.

Thank you also for giving me the info on reporting spam. I will pass it on.

Hall of shame discussion thread is the worst for it. I've been reporting some of it. I get the same error message but it then goes to the report page.

I just tried to report your post - not that it's spam, I just wanted to see the error without navigating away from this page!

My error says:
Content Encoding Error
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

This is using Firefox 53.0.3, on my PC. About the time they improved the ability to post, this started happening. I haven't been able to report any spam since that time.
Thanks janiegirl. I passed this info on to the necessary parties.
