Do you ever wonder where the SPAM went on TWF?

We instituted a policy where the first post of every new member must be approved. While this is somewhat of a convenience to legitimate new members, it also allows the mod team to pick out the SPAM and ban new member spammers before you ever see them.

I thought I'd share with you what we see on a daily basis. This is a screen capture of the SPAM threads we move (the forum isn't visible to anyone but moderators). If you ever what your mod team does, here is one example. nearly all of these threads were identified as SPAM and moved before you saw them! Further, the user accounts were banned permanently.

Just one example of your mod team at work, behind the scenes.

Now that is proprietary information. We can't reveal all of our secrets!

I think the SPAM forum would be a fun public place...





Or maybe I was just trying to click on 'Britany Spears Vagina'...

We really need to give our mods a hand. They do alot that we never see so we all have a nice forum minus all the BS on the net defacing it. I know a little about how/what they do but my forums dont compare to this one in membership.

so to all our mods.

I think this statement applies:


People who love the law and sausage should never see how either one is made.
