Maybe he "can" — but has he ever actually deleted an entire thread on this forum before with more than the initial post? I can't think of any.

I'm pretty sure he stated here before that he can remove a thread only if one person posts a new thread — but if there are any replies to that thread by others, then he is unable to remove the thread due to the forum coding structure.

But what if there's a Code of Harry Cole guidelines, as a way to channel Ken's impulses that could not be stopped?

Glad someone else remembers him mentioning it.

Anyone in on a bet when the first viagra-spam will be showing up?

If you thik span is bad on this site, you ought see what my isp collect and lists under known spam 38 in just one day. I clear it after I scan it because every once in awhile they trap something I asked to look over.
I also can and do report scam to my isp.

If you think that's bad, try literally getting a couple hundred spams on my old AOL email account (began in 1995) in one day. A good half is stopped by the anti-spam folder, but the other half gets through.

I don't think there even is any moderation in this section of the forum anymore. Spam posts and threads aren't even being removed or edited now.

Well that is exactly what it is. Without opening the link, I examined it, and yes it was viagra.

Now at least it is easy to bring back the acne



This then should solve your other problem due to severe lack of interest from your daughter.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

Wow,
the first inventory-page of this forum really has turned into a junk-yard lately.

You only find a handful of open threads that haven't been completely spammed.

Common Ken this is completly ridiculous... 7 spams in two days (and today isn't over). Is it the image you want to give to your company? If you don't care about cleaning the garbage that give to any new potential clients the impression that you don't care about the software either.

What I think he should do (if possible) is give staff access to only one trusted regular member for this section only.

I'd be willing. Many other established members would be willing to take the task as well.

At bare minimum the member could edit the posts and topic titles (with just a . maybe) making them more obvious to bypass. Being able to delete the posts/topics so that they don't fill the page would be preferable, of course.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

He who MUST get the last word in on a pointless, endless argument doesn't win. It makes him the bigger jerk.
