Anyone know how the bots are getting past the Captchas? There seems to have been a lot of spam recently, I'm wondering if there are actually people in impoverished countries behind the posts instead of actual bots.
Has there been any thought to putting a user mod feature in place where a certain number of "Flag as Spam" votes from regular users triggers temporary removal (or hiding) of the post until a Moderator reviews it to make sure its not spam?
I realize this also has the potential for abuse...
I know the spam could be a lot worse, and it only comes in waves, but it would be nice to be able to help limit the amount of spam that ends up being visible to most users.
I would hate for a new potential member to log on to the website, see that the last 20 posts were from "aiai" about 23airjordans.com and run away screaming because it doesn't appear there is recent valid content on here (which there definitely is!)
