Europe forum

Where are the moderators?
Has anyone looked at the Europe forum?
It is pretty sad state of affairs.
Don't even feel like being part of this mess.
Hope someone will take some action and make the forums fun to participate.

I've been on for more than an hour and the board looks fine.

Sure it can be annoying - But whenever I have seen spam it has been cleaned out either right away or w/i a reasonable time. Sometimes it does stay up overnight but always gets cleared out eventually.

It is gone now.
Thanks, Janisj for your input.
Have a great day.

is this something that happens when the East Coast moderators go home or sign off for the day? Seems that there should be some way to prevent this. Regular posters get zapped for starting too many topics in too short a time, and then you have the mess that is the Europe forum right now (March 17th at 6:00 PM PDT).

It's starting up on at least 5 other forums as well.

It's been going on for months, and the moderators are doing everything they can to deal with it.

In the meantime, be thankful that it's in Hangul, and so you can easily know to skip something.

And if you screen by country, these threads don't appear, at least IME.

I'm not sure why but Korean spammers are the main culprits for us. That and supplement urls. The profit margins on the supplement industry must be enormous to employ so many spambots.
