Just to let you know, we have appointed two moderators to date and started banning IP addresses, including normad and the repeat spammers. The spam attack came out of the blue over the weekend, but I believe it's getting better. Hopefully, you'll notice an improvement. We'll appoint further moderators as necessary.
We do appreciate users' efforts to alert us when they come across inappropriate postings, and we react to these as quickly as possible.
Thanks for your cooperation.
As far as I can see there's only one new moderator in addition to admin, and as we've just seen from normad's latest posts that's not enough. To work successfully a place like this needs a whole group of moderators as that's what ensures that at least one of them will be online and around to quickly deal with such offensive garbage as normad's posts. But surely this is just the first step, and you plan to appoint further mods soon? You really need to if this place is going to be a place that people feel comfortable returning to. Thanks.
