Now almost all of the forums are blocked here at school because some idiot has posted revealing images of natalie portman.

I want to be able to chat and hang out here, but if this isn't dealt with, I can't. :cry:

Edit: Thanks for fixing this Mania, I realize that you have a lot on your plate, and it's easier said than done keeping spam out.

Haha, don't you have better things to do at school? :D

But yeah, this spam is pissing me off too. Half the "new posts" involve unlocking iphones for free, or natalie portman.

The best thing you can do is report the posts, as you did indeed do. (Thanks!)

I'm putting some additional security measures in place, and if that doesn't help enough then I'll be looking for some people to help me keep the board clean when I'm not here.

Unfortunately this sort of thing is a common occurrence, especially when it comes to newly established forums. I'm sure Mania is doing her best to keep the spam out, but they can be pretty sly in getting around blocks and such.
