There have been a couple threads asking what 247 plans to do about the SPAM in the Breslin forum. Though there are surely to be responses from the thousands of posters that are as ignorant of the solution as myself, I'm hoping someone with a link into the company can help to explain if this is being addressed or will it continue to just be a futile mod fire fighting exercise.
But have you heard about the assistant coaches ranking system???
i think china is trying to get back at us for seizing all of their counterfeit uniforms.
America should just give them their knock-offs back and be done with it.
There is hardly ever any worthwhile info in the Duff or Breslin any way. They should just get rid of those two boards and post the stuff here (which most of the time it already is anyway).
Only thing IMHO that can be done is delete and ban when it happens. I guess they could put in some sort of filter but then you run the risk of legit posts getting flagged I would think.
Bumping the "HEY MODS LOOK: Bump when you need a mod to do something" has been working fine for me. I try to include the spammers user name. I would think that would be helpful info....and say "Thank You".

The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
The proposed solution would be what happened on the national board; make the entire board pay to post. I don't think that's going to go over too well with everyone.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
You probably don't remember why those boards were created in the first place then.
all the mods hate me so i just wanted to say hi mods
The only two options to solving a spam problem are to 1) let it run wild or 2) require people to pay to use the site?
I'm no tech wizard, but it seems like there could possibly be a middle ground.
On the old RCMB tDuff was my first stop every day because there was always good info there. Now it seems a lot of that stuff is posted in the main board. That was the only point I was trying to make.
I miss the days of incessant SSPM.

I'm saying those are going to be the corporate 247 solutions. My solution would be to include those things that you have to type in to prove you're a person ( I don't know what they're called) for each new account; like 1LTH6ZVA, but it's squiggly so a computer can't read them.
Op why didn't you just say that you feel like bitching. Why go through the ruse of acting like the spam is the issue?

The biggest problem on the old board were the 5000 threads with the same information posted in it because people never searched. That was with an actual working search function. Not to mention that I'd hate to force anyone to have to sift through the thousands of crap threads to get to any recruiting information.
As a bonus, I doubt Nucky or most UM fans could figure out how to do that, so it would weed them out too.

Yea! That thing.
Honestly the only good thing about Nucky going forward on this board is that any poster now with less than 50 posts that makes a questionable post is pretty much immediately wiped. Nucky is now more of a movement than one person.
