    As much as I hate to suggest this, given the growing amount of spam that comes in through anonymous posting, I think it’s probably getting to be about time to disable anonymous posting.

    I would agree.

    Unless you keep on top of it all the time it can have detrimental effects. If people really want to say something they will join (it’s fairly straight forward)!

    I can see multiple spam on the forums right now, never mind the material I’ve been removing all week. 😕

    I’ll have to agree. The constant spamming will turn people away from the forums defeating the purpose of the forums.

    May we have more enforcement of the new spamming law and more sentences like the California case.

    I agree, kill the guest access. It’s easy enough to sign up.

    Yup, its a bummer but I hate spam more than guest postings of helpful material. Axe the guest jam.

    Spam keeps showing up. Has the guest posting been disabled yet?

    The guest post should go. Just my two cents…

    It is a sorry world in which we live.

    I suppose this was a necessity with the recent spat of link spamming hitting the site.

    It seems like such an easy solution and all of us members are not inconvenienced. Still, I hope no guest is put off joining our merry band because they couldn’t post immediately as a guest. I know I like to test the water a bit before jumping in.

    As always I am looking forward to the latest WLD session and I know Cob37 and his group will be at it tomorrow night.

    Hurrah! The only spam will be from a can again! 🙂

    As to people not wanting to join to post, I lurked for several weeks as a guest, several more as a member before I summoned up the courage to post. 😮 Now I just write drivel… 🙄

    If you are writing drivel, then what I am writing must be unspeakable. 😆
