I've noticed a distinct increase in spam posts lately.  Is there perhaps a flagging function that could be enabled on the forums, or any other way that I can help moderators detect and remove these posts?  Or is the problem under control?

There's "Report to moderator" button. However the registration is probably not as bot-proof. Maybe people who want to use the site have to send BTC 0.01 to the forum, and then once registration is complete - they'd get it back Smiley

Then we know that person's interest in bitcoin is genuine Cheesy

D'oh!  I don't know how I missed that--must be time to get some sleep.  Paying .01 BTC to register seems like a really bad idea, since many people will want to ask questions here before starting to use BitCoin.

Well, it's still possible to browse. Plus there's wiki, weusecoins, and other great resources, amirite?
