Forum Moderation Against Spam and Similar Unwelcome Posts

Post by s130 » 28 Jan 2021, 11:20

ALL NEW POSTS BY NEW MEMBERS ARE MODERATED AND NOT AUTOMATICALLY MADE PUBLIC. (See March 2023 Update below)

If you are new to this website then your posts will be moderated. Moderation is not immediate so please allow a little time for your post to be cleared.

For SPAM merchants/posters then please don't waste your time. Your posts will be deleted and never been seen because they get moderated and deleted before they become public.


In this year only, 2022, well over 1000 user accounts have been banned and deleted due to SPAM and other off topic posts. We will relentlessly ban and delete all accounts long before your posts are made public!
Take the hint and do not waste your time!


I thought it is appropriate that I update this post/message so that new members to this forum do not feel that they are being ignored.

As stated above all new member posts are not public until moderated/reviewed. At this time it is me (S130) and Yani that do the moderation. Yani is obviously very busy on developing and supporting MES which means that the bulk of moderation falls to me.

Needless to say there are many spammers and fraudsters trying to infiltrate our forum so the work load for moderators can be high. So with this in mind please give us a little time before reposting what you think has been an ignored post.

With your assistance we can keep this MES forum clean and safe for all.

Sadly unwanted spammers are continuing to try and infriltrate and infest our forum. Rest assured I/mods are working hard to ensure these unwanted pests and their posts do not appear for our valued true MES friends. If we miss any then please report. Our viligence also means thats new members when they first post "will be moderated and their post will NOT be visible on the forum till approved"! But please fear not and be patient. True MES posters will be approved!
