I'm reading your posts kk and it seems to boil down to you don't like the moderators. Or spam Wombles. What's the issue ? Apart from it not being you ?

Apart from it not being me what? I would refuse as you should have realised. How much of what I've said didn't make that clear in any shape or form? I would never be asked either...

Well apart from the odd spam and personal trolls, but RW Towers ignore any abuse against me, so I'm going to take up knitting.

But Dominique said you were chosen because you reported the most. I'm confused too.

yeah... I think that's fab.

I've done all sorts of voluntary work over the years. If people are happy to do it it's fine by me.

 I don't *think* RW is locking anyone in a dimly lit room and forcing them to scour the internet until their fingers bleed.

she said reporting Spam............and i think this has been said a number of times.........but you keep going on about reporting threads...........i report spam.............never threads or posts.......( apart from once stated).( just to clarify for the jeremy kyle lie detector) stop worrying that the mods have been chosen as they go around the forums reporting anyone who says the F word or anyone who says something they don't like..................we were asked as we report spam...........and so now instead of reporting spam.we womble away the spam...........

What I think concerns some people (and me) is that now that you've got a 'badge' people with pressurise you to deal with posts that aren't spam but offend them in some way.



The remit is clear.  All we've been asked to do is mark certain types of post as spam, this hides them from the forum view so that people can log in and use the forum as they'd expect.

The types of spam are:

  1. Chinese spammers selling fake goods.
  2. Gif files containing copies of previous posts with a gif file added at the end.
  3. People using the forum to sell items or services not related to running or linking to escort services.

It's nothing to do with threads / posts deemed offensive - if anyone thinks it is, then I'll just point them politely in the direction of RW Towers. 

Spam Womble sounds good to me - forget the badge, we could wear the costume.

I think the spam wombles are a good idea.  I do think though that they're wasting their breath trying to explain what they've been asked to do, as some people are never going to just get over it and move on to something else.  Their remit seems abundantly clear to me, and I think if they're happy to do it, then fab.

I can't believe how much fuss is being made about this!

All they can do is hide obvious spam - what is wrong with that?  If they are happy to do it for free, why do others care?

People volunteer for all sorts of things - coaching kids at sports, visiting lonely people in hospital, teaching adults to read and write.  Should they not do so unless they are paid?

I guess the people fussing most are those who weren't asked!

I like the idea of Meldy as Madame Cholet Spam Womble

18/06/2012 at 21:24
I wasn't even asked
