    Default Spammers and timewasters

    So, am I alone in wanting to just read interesting threads from fellow makers/enthusiasts, rather than sifting through the spammers and timewasters?

    What about if new and old members had to pay a 1 one off fee. Surely this would get rid of them ..?

    What do others think?

    Unfortunately it is just part of the internet these days.

    The easy way to get rid of spammers is click on the "report post" button, at which point some mindless drone (me) will remove the offending post and banish the perpetrators.

    Sometimes it’s difficult to tell whether it’s spam or….:/

    True. Which is why I tend to look at the IP address location as a guide. Certain origins are more likely to be spam than others.
