    Red face Massive amounts of spam in Compiz Forums?

    Why is every post in Compiz Forums an ad/spam? For example, on the General Support section, every post starting from page 223 is spam. Have these forums been completely abandoned? Where are the mods? I know Compiz's popularity isn't what it used to be, but it's not dead. I was just curious to see what people are talking about in relation to Compiz, and got lost in a sea of spam. It's almost sad. What's going on? What happened?

    OK no offense but did you actually read my post? This is on Compiz's forums, and there are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of spam. I don't want to remove all of them so much as I simply want to get to the bottom of this.

    I was one of the mods on the compiz forum, but I've lost the ability to login, and there are a few other problems that I won't go into here.

    Re: Massive amounts of spam in Compiz Forums?

    I would like to discuss this issue openly, however if you must keep secrets, I'm fine with that. So what can we talk about? Obviously this is a serious issue. No forum should suffer this fate, especially not Compiz's. This must have been discussed before, but I can't get any results on Google and any post about this issue on Compiz Forums would surely be buried in spam.

    P.S. I Did not know what section to post this in. Feel free to move to a more appropriate section if possible.

    I tend to lose interest in a forum before the page count gets to double figures, so you must have a lot of spare time to have read through the previous 222 pages!

    Haha, no : P
    I started on the last page and skipped to the 250's and worked my way down till I saw the first page full of spam topics. Seriously, it was just an abrupt end to all legitimate posts.
