    Because as far as I know, only one person, the main admin, has the power to delete the posts and he is rarely on here anymore. Others (myself included) have volunteered to help police and cleanup the board when this happens, but so far know one else can that I know of.

    This is ridiculous. 14 posts by "Roundly" and all are spam posts.

    How about giving at least one person moderator rights to get these off every day, if they can't be stopped from posting? I have reported posts the past couple of days and they are still up. Myself and others will gladly assist, just give us the rights to do so.

    It would be nice to have at least one other person to clean up and ban the spam.

    What are you talking about? Everything looks great. I'm getting my first shipment of Sodium Pentobarbital next week.

    What I love are all the fake responses to the original spam posts saying how great the original post is. That takes some dedication.

    I went to the profile of the spammer and reported the account.

    I suggest that if three different members report an account on the profile page then the reported account should be automatically blocked and posts removed to quarantine. The blocked account should then have the option to challenge the blocking, but if the administrator concur then the blocking stays.
    If a member (using several accounts) are falsely reporting/blocking another member they should of course be banned.

    I guess I don't understand why several people have offered to help moderate, but those offers are just ignored. One ore two moderators who are on here more frequently would be able to react much more quickly. It isn't like we have a ton of stuff that needs moderation here, but when we do it'd be great if there were more than just one person watching the gate.

    More posted this morning in response to the original posts. Obviously no one is watching, policing, or even responding to the reported SPAM posts. I don;t know Wagonmaster's situation, but I am sure a few of us regular are trustworthy enough to give moderator rights to. It's not hard.

    So, who is the lucky volunteer that was enlisted? Wasn't me.
