Could someone with some sort of power PLEASE just IP Ban the idiots who are posting insurance and porn? It's irritating and pointless. If I were looking for car insurance and porn on the internet, there are far better places to go than a forum about the world being flat.

I don't have the ability to ban users, all I can do is delete and edit posts in the general discussion section, the only person who can ban people is Daniel and I haven't seen him around in a while. You can try emailing him and ask him to ban the users or ask him to elect another admin.

I've been trying to delete the threads as soon as they come up but I just simply can't be online 24/7.

Then find someone trustworthy who might havea different schedule from you and can be on at different times. It would help spread the workload.

i'm on here pretty often (like, several times a day), and i've often thought of myself as pretty trustworthy. Just a thought.

Monthly is once per month, and not a good quality for a staff member.

This place is like a lighting-rod for annoying people.  I've been swamped with work lately and haven't had much time to devote to the website (which I'd much rather be doing).  So I've decided to delegate responsibility a bit.

EnragedPenguin has been doing an excellent job as moderator so far and I appreciate all of his hard work.  So he's been promoted to administrator.

In addition to EnragedPenguin's promotion, I've made pspunit a moderator in the General Discussion forum.

I'll message you two privately to work out the details.  Welcome aboard!

In order to cut down on annoying pharmacy/porn/mp3 ads, I've enabled visual confirmation for new account registration.  This will hopefully prevent ad-posting bots from signing up and littering the forums.

Also, I've appointed Cinlef moderator of the Alternative Science, Information Repository and Angry Rantings forums.  Welcome!
