This spam thing is getting out of hand

Any way for the mods to control this? How about you need a certain number of feedback points to post a question

Mods also do not get notice of "reported" questions/answers/comments, so that's worthless for reporting spam (I assume reports go to Admins).

As a note though, everyone can 'close' threads that are spam.

It's really up to the owner/devs of the site to put in place a more stringent protocol though, admins really can't fix the issue.

Seriously, the spam is killing this place. I used to enjoy reading it every day, now it's a real chore.

How about introducing the feature a lot of forums have, that restrict your ability to post a link until a certain number of posts. That stops a lot of spammers before they even start.

Hey everyone, We've been working on spam and putting in some minimums to cut it down - more on this soon, I promise. :)

There's 4-5 of us with delete power, and we generally sleep occasionally, so we can't always be around to kill spam. 4 hours after your post, I don't see any spam, somebody got to it already.
