I guess I'm wondering how full movie downloads have anything to do with a general discussion of Star Trek - even topics that may cross multiple series??!!?  Maybe I just missed the memo...  


 


Please...  enlighten me...  someone....

It's yet another troll/spammer.  I've reported them to the Admins, but the admins are very slow to respond.  I really miss the days when Guy Vardaman or Tim Gaskill were running the site - I could e-mail them and they're respond very quickly and take care of requests.

Thanx Fleet Admiral...  seems you're our defacto Admin, eh?  Glad you're on the job - too bad they just don't turn the keys directly over to you to monitor....  but then you couldn't have as much fun...

^^ Nah... If I were, then I'd be working on the bugs that this site has had since it launched.  It's just that I've been here >15 years and (I think) longer than any other active member.


I think they only want CBS employees with admin privileges.

Ahh...  the ones with no vested interest in making the site worth it's weight in salt...

At this point... yea...  It's the free market and CBS' goal is to make money.  This site costs money to maintain without much revenue coming in to pay for it.


Now if they'd agree to turn over some basic moderation to a couple of trusted members (with limited privilieges to remove obvious spam, etc.) I think it could be good... but if those moderators don't follow the board guidelines and instead punish people that they don't like, it would make things worse.  I've managed multiple boards in the past and have seen both sides.

Clearly a double edged sword - but this is annoying...  another one popped up again...  this is ridiculous.

Yep - happening almost every day now, but CBS just doesn't seem intestested in responding to our complaints.  While Captcha slows it down, it's more of a hindrance to our posting than the spammers.

I am frustrated as well. I have been a member for years and I have never seen so little effort put in to the site.

I have no clue why they're ignoring us.  Several people have reported the myriad spam posts, but nothing has been done these past few weeks.  I really miss Guy Vardaman & Tim Gaskill.  Guy was quick to respond on the boards and Tim would respond quite quickly (usually the same day) to our e-mails.

I've tried e-mailing the admins using all the e-mail addresses that I've corresponded with them in the past.... all are coming back as invalid e-mail addresses.

I finally got them to respond to an e-mail.... and basically their response was "what spam?"  I pointed them to pages of it, but I doubt anything will happen.

It reminds of when they started the captcha crap and it seemed to get worse, and it seems that having it doesn't help. I would totally support BamBam as a mod, I only lurked around for a few years but I've never seen him be a complete *%#^& to anyone.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?
