Read the stickies. Mods will come under fire if they delete a thread that some people think/want to be real.
There are reasons, damn it, just read!

Hi there, I'm from South Africa.
This means I'm poor, I guess.

Most obvious scam/scammy new altcoins threads don't get deleted because:

1) This forum doesn't moderate scams but  "spams".
2) Just check out the Investor-based Games section. All of the posts in that section is a scam Wink If scams were deleted, 100% of the total posts Investor-Games section would be deleted and 90% posts of the Altcoins section would be deleted too Smiley

Because if they don't allow them, the altcoin section would be empty.

The only way for people to wise up about the obvious scam/scammy alt coins is to figure it out for themselves. Removing them will just cause greater issue, as what is scammy and what isn't is completely black and white. As someone who has dabbled in Alt coins, I'd imagine I speak for a fairly decent percent of people here, but things such as premines, quiet releases, etc set off my scam alert. However, there is nothing actually scammy by the definition of what is a scam. If the creator could somehow take control of all of the coins at any time, or has a way to literally steal from you, its a scam. But bad creation policy is just bad policy.

Real scam altcoins such as ones with malware built in for the purpose of stealing your coins are deleted, but besides that, what is and isn't a scam is up to individual perception when it comes to coins.
