Is there a reason that Babypips can’t, or won’t, deal with this problem ?
Every night (New York time) between midnight and about 5am, garbage of the sort copied-and-pasted below gets posted in the “Beginner Questions” forum. These posts are always from first-time posters, who get around the problem of posting links by using the Post Title line at the top to write in the website they want to advertise.
Typically there are several of these every night. They are so similar to each other that one has to wonder whether they all come from the same retard, who simply registers multiple times per day, using different user-names.
Sometimes the Moderator on duty is prompt about clearing the garbage off the forum, and banning the fool who posted it — if someone uses the Report Post button. Otherwise, the garbage remains for hours, in some cases.
This stuff makes the Babypips site look like a sleazy place to visit, and I really think the Owners/Administrators/Moderators of this forum should start to pay attention to the problem, and do something about it.
I have suggested a remedy, which I will repeat here:
• Quarantine the first post (or the first two, or three, or five posts) of new members, pending review by a Moderator. That quarantine could be limited to the midnight-5am (ET) hours, during which this problem seems to occur.
• If a new member who has attempted to post objectionable material inquires about why his post never made it to the forum, DO NOT ANSWER his inquiry. Simply ban the fool, without explanation. Do not give him/her/it the satisfaction of getting any sort of response from the Moderators and/or Administrator.
• If a new member whose attempted first post was [B]not[/B] objectionable inquires about his/her missing post, treat him/her with the appropriate respect. A “form-letter”, explaining the quarantine policy, would be a quick way to handle such inquiries.
Dealing with this problem can’t be that hard. It’s not rocket science.
