And by spammers, I'm not talking about bots trying to sell us big dick pills and work at home business opportunites.
I'm talking about the ones who know exactly who they are. Mostly anonymous oddballs with large breasted brides, recently unbanned knife salesmen, longtime dedicated true-believers, and habitual repetitive meme posters.
Here's the deal.
You're boring. You're repetitive. You've run through any added value you ever had to offer.
If this is really the big one, we'll all know soon enough.
In the meantime, you need to check yourselves.
A fucking lot.
Myself and the rest of the people that clean up the puke here get zero enjoyment out of doing that for you.
Don't want to censor.
Don't want to ban.
Fuck around and find out.
Plenty of political sub-Reddits that would love to have ya'.

Those tires look good enough for a few fire roads at least.
I wouldn't take it on a SuperCross track, but you could definitely get it a little muddy.

Until the front fender packs with mud or a rock and washes out. I've never understood why the front fender on a trials bike sits so close to the tyre.

So, ...................... NO NO NO!

How do we throttle the spammers?

We capitalize the first word of an english snetence that is NOT "SO" perhaps?

I've dabbled in hosting forums before. Dealing with spammers and nut jobs was a full time job and I would not do it again. You're doing great.
If it gets to that - bans should be permanent, letting nut jobs back in only perpetuates your hassle. Other than that ignore function works good.

Gar, the only solution would require banning r1 and the resultant loss of bet debt payoff, so, to offset the loss I'll pledge a Benjamin, and maybe some others will follow my lead, and we can be rid of this annoyance.

Just stuff a Benjamin in an envelope and send it is how I have been contributing for the last 20 years.

Restrict certain members ability to post pictures. The traffic will throttle itself when they gotta type out the shit they usually copy/paste from a picture/screenshot.

You could make a new subforum for political post and then move all political posts to that forum forcibly until those posts are compartmentalized and outside of bike talk.

Anything -political or religious should be posted there as the general rule. Politics and religion will become taboo in the main form, the same as the dinner table. In fact that's what you should name the subforum, "not at the dinner table".

this way you would neither be censoring the information or eliminating it, but simply putting in a place where interested parties can view it and non-interested parties are not harassed by it.

alternatively the forum software may have a filter system that allows you to badge a post as political and have a option for the user to filter those posts out.

If prompted, I will initiate a poll thread to see what the people think.

Given the current events, it shouldn t surprise anyone that the leftie leaning members are always up in arms about banning people all the time.

They only want their bullshit story to be heard.
