Default Increase in spam again

I hate to say it, but I've been visiting the site less and less now because of the increase in spam. I understand the moderators have better things to do than to monitor the forum for these assholes, but my favorite car forum is really taking a hit with this. Almost all of the latest discussions are spammers.

What can be done about this? The report button is still broken. Can we not elect a few more moderators??

We had to have a few of us old timers hop in and help with all the spammers in the past, helping the mods.

I agree its getting out of control again.

Agreed, its pretty annoying to be greeted by one real thread and 7 spam threads.

Sorry guys, I've been pretty busy lately and have had less time to clean up.

That will be ending starting next week! Moving an hour closer to work
