Especially on the music board. Really annoying.
but DiS without shitty jags of rubbish bands / barcodes / competitions would be like Harold Melvin without the Blue Notes, you'll never go platinum.
There's a problem with the 'delete all posts by user' option and basically they shouldn't even be able to sign up but they are.
I just deleted a bunch and banned them but the site's not really swift enough for it to be easy unfortunately.
and also, when we do delete stuff, it takes a while for the cache to catch up.
doing my best to manually delete them (about an hour or two at the start and end of every day!)
the only way to really stop them is to add things which would make the site much more annoying to use for everyone else and i'm not sure so there is SO MUCH that it is RUINING the ENTIRE WEBSITE to justify such extreme actions.
maybe you could have a filter that stops such a thing?..
as you know, adding filters for one thing, often breaks something or upsets someone else.
we're currently rebuilding the entire back-end, upgrading it all from the bottom up, as 10 years in real-time is about 100 years in Internet Years. 2000 was a vintage year and we've been lucky the site hasn't crashed and burned as much as it should but it's a tangled mess just now and needs serious time and attention, rather than lots of quick fixes (which aren't cheap at the £400+ per day that developers cost!).
pretty sure the spam isn't annoying all of you as much as it's annoying the fuck out of me and those who are helping to delete it.
for now, if you can all just ignore it, that'd be great.
there are some really good offers on Nike shoes to be had
doesn't bother me one bit though.
Then the internet will explode
