    What's with all the SPAM these days on the forum.

    People posting their affiliate link in wrong sections, posting non-asked offers in different threads, newbies with spam at first post..

    Can I have a big hummer for them?

    I think it's pretty funny when some newbies think that they can trick BHW members into buying their crappy product or following their affiliate link when they have 1 or 2 posts :D But all in all it's very annoying when people do that but it's getting more and more popular in each and every forum online... :/

    every one is born an affiliate junkie.


    with about ~100 people signing up and posting, we only have 1-2 mods online daily its pretty hard to hummerized these folks

    You Guessed it Right! Peoples Simply Flood BHW with Tons of Spammy Posts and Download Links since the Apocalypse of Big M Scammers. What all we can do is to use the "Report" Function Effectively. This will eventually decrease SPAM count.

    At the same time the sad thing is MODS don't BAN people as like as they did once!

    For ex, When i see a spammy post, i'll report it and place a request to BAN the Poster whenever applicable. MODS do delete the spammy posts within few mins(20 Mins Max) after Reporting. But they Ignore to BAN the Member
    on these Days. So if i see another post by same spammer in next few mins, it really feels frustrated to use the Report Button again!

    Take a look into the BST. There are more and more automation tools coming out to help spam... And since we deal in a BH market, a lot of this software gets cracked and leaked down until it reaches noobs or people who don't know the BH communities.

    Kind of a backlash of creating all of this automation...
