I have no intention of removing posts or threads that are not genuine spam (if there is such a thing) and there are other ways or alerting first time posters who may have misread the T&Cs or overstepped the mark which will be dealt with as usual by RW


Are you categorically saying that you won't remove or change posts by established users, even if you disagree with them? I don't like user mods, I've seen it go from sycophancy to downright misuse on other forums. I also don't like the fact that RW Towers choose users from not being on the forum themselves, complete guesswork. I knew they'd choose you because of various reasons. I don't disagree with that choice if someone HAS to do it.

That was a compliment btw I'm fucked off with RW generally as they still owe me money promised from years ago for being a pacer for them and promoting them at races.

No-one gives a shit anymore.

As it says on the tin

Good luck Meldy, hope you don't mind the 3 am texts to say "GET THE SPAM OFF NOW!" hehehe

Meldy - No flack warranted. You'll do good

Sounds good to me. As  a witch Meldy can probably delete spam without even logging on anyway. 

<waits for this to be deleted>

<in the mean time runs away very quickly>

Well done Meldy, you've got to be the highest poster I've ever seen on here, and thus spend your life on here, so who better to clean up this dump!

Looking at the length of your post though, the power is already kicking in

Melds you'll do a fab job I'm sure.

She's a witch, burn her!

Oops that was to Mouldy!

Burn her anyway Cas

KK...why should everything be motivated by money? Maybe Melds just wants to make it work better round here.

I doubt RW makes much profit out of the forum tbh. Web publishing is not as lucrative as some think it is.

If I have to explain my motivation for doing something voluntarily without payment for this forum then I am afraid that may well say more about you than it does me

Its not a huge task, I can do what I can when I am logged on, I am just giving back

It really is that simple

Kk, I think you're arguing with the wrong people here. Perhaps going direct to the finance team at RW towers with a complaint and a request for any owed monies would be a more direct approach, and bring you better results?



And back to the subject of this thread, I think it's an excellent idea to have some external people monitoring for spam. And having a witch do it, as others have noted, is even better.

Edited as cross post, to add:
And please remove that great frozen chip from your shoulder. You are paranoid.

"but you can just delete all my posts"

That's me done.

So, are the user mods operational or are they still going through initiation?

Witches have their own initiation rites

A catfight, and a three-way one at that

Should we order mud or jelly?

I prefer jelly
