As the title says...

Is there a way we users can remove these spam posts from the forum? Especially disturbing are the porn advertisements.

These messages cannot be allowed to persist on the site if it is to survive. Photography is certainly not a specifically adult topic, and there may be children reading...

Hi Amy

They are removed as soon as spotted and the posters are then banned. There isn't a way for anyone to remove them, or they would be able to remove anything else as well, but it is watched as much as it is possible to do so and acted upon immediately.

Best wishes

Many other sites with forums have some sort of mechanism to allow users to flag inappropriate postings to the moderator. As I write this, I see you have removed one of the postings but one remains.

Hi Amy

Thanks, found it. One got away for a moment in the huge list of deleted posts. We are doing what we can to block this relatively sudden attack at source.

Best wishes

Hi Guys we have changed the method with which people register to photodo so that they need a valid email address. Their password is then emailed to them so this should stop the spam.
