I know what it is

santeewelding
hebee and the others are allowed to live and continue because someone on the inside is being bribed with trinkets and Nikes.

There is a mole in TR.

    ..... some HEbees are quite valuable. More so when paired with the complimentary SHEbee. They oftentimes fetch hundreds of dollars, especially the ones that are nearing the centenarian mark.

    The cost of the space to store their missives versus the extra number of hits TR gets....

    No contest.

    Addressing the situation would take a significant amount of resource and given the inventiveness of spammers, this would be ongoing.

    And it would cut the number of hits...

    I can't see any benefit whatsoever to chopping spam for TR as a business. Short of us all buggering off, and to where?

    Many spammers make their own posts and that causes valid posts to lose their placement. A visitor to TR might not see the real posts, they would see a bunch of spam instead.

    Hebee seems to reply to existing posts. In a sense, he is actually helping the post with placement, but a visitor to TR might enter the discussion looking for valid replies and find whatever trash Hebee posted. Its a turnoff.

    In the end, its better not to have spamming idiots taking control of the forums. It takes away from the professional appearance that TR is trying to convey.

    I know its easier said than done to get rid of spammers, but I think they could probably do something about the more pervasive ones that hit one thread after another in a short period of time. No valid poster posts 5 or 6 posts a minute.

    TR as a vibrant community of types who are interested in tech, the people who pay the bills for supplying it seeing it as a huge targeted demographic that they can sell as an audience to tech purveyors.


    Given how easy it would be to identify this sort of behaviour by signature, I can only assume they see littel to no business benefit in preventing it.

    Maybe if we all go on strike and not use it for a week, they'll pull a finger out.

    A disgruntled ex-TR poster that was upset by Santee do you?

    Or how about a Disgruntled ex TR employee. NA that couldn't be the case but maybe the Moderator could be responsible to keep herself in employment. :^0

    I don't think its just about Santee. I was thinking more of someone that was kicked off by the PTBs or someone that wasn't that well received in the forums. The last guy that had a problem with Santee, could be the type maybe.

    Our esteemed Moderator would never do anything like that, I don't think. What a concept though.
