Check it out for yourself on Forum Leaders, we have a new forum staff member, and he is Keith.

I hope he does a great job moderating the board. Reed did listen to my advice after all and got someone to help him with the spamming problem this community has. Hopefully, he appoints a legion of staff to totally stop the spabots once and for all :D

Actually, I didn't want to make a big deal of this publicly. I'm only here to help out with the spam attacks and that's all. I'm not part of the "staff" or connected officially to TM.

How can we best help? Is there a way to send you an email? Or do you get one whenever we send a PM? I would be most interested in dfoing that if there are either a lot of threads or if any of it is ****.

I check in on the board many times a day and night so sooner or later I'll see any spam threads still up on the boards that Reed or Jeff haven't managed to catch. If the board is getting hit hard with spam, I'll make a point of checking it even more frequently. I want to try to remove spam as soon as it's detected and hopefuly that will discourage future spam attacks.

I don't have the email function turned on for PMs, because I don't check my email all that often...maybe every other day or two.

Also, right now, my ability to reply to Visitor Messages on my Profile is broken. So if you post anything there the only way I can respond is by PM until Reed sorts that out. Best to PM me for the time being.

Still, at least let the others thank you for becoming one :)

Yep, Reed decided to take onboard my advice I kept on giving him. :)

So you're like the mini-spambot catcher for Reed? :D :D

Try checking more :)

Permissions problem, you can receive, but not reply to Visitor Messages.

I would guess that it had little to do with you and much much more to do with the fact that the spam has increased to all new heights in the last couple weeks.

You bet. I already nailed about six of those buggers early this morning. It's really fun when I can delete the spam as soon as it is posted, but some of the time it manages to survive for 30 mins or an hour or two. I gotta sleep some time.

You could call it that. :) Fortunately, or, unfortunately (for me), I can only manage to sleep for about 2-4 hours at a time nowadays. It's main reason you'll see me online here in the dead of night many times.

Well, at least, you don't have to report any threads atm, since you'll just receive a report that you made :D

Keith has actually been a mod for a couple years at least, helping keep the spam down. But for some reason his permissions got messed up at some point. I didn't know about that though until the recent influx of spam.
