Hi NathL,
I was told that the engineers for Getsatisfaction are definitely working on a resolve.
Best thing you can do is to suspend the users and delete these topics for now if you have mod powers.
I do this regularly on the main Getsatisfaction and Developer side when I see spam.
If you guys can do this swiftly they normally move on.
I also help Firemint on their support site and forum.
I HATE spam.
I really don't see people reading the crap they put on.

It's personally upsetting to see the spam here with Australian context as I'm in Australia myself :(
Hopefully there will be a resolve soon.

Bump hope you get the notification.
You guys are getting hit hard.
Why the fascination with your site?
In 4 hours there are almost 30 spam posts.
I'm hoping we don't see porn here like one of the other communities I was involved with a few years ago on Ngmoco.

Hmmm.. You are able to delete posts (as an employee)? As a mere champion, I can only signal them to e.g. the GetSat people. In combating spam though, you might think about enabling champions the privilige to 'delete' posts / block users from posting?

Kind regards,

Roel
P.S. I use the following thread to report spam:
https://getsatisfaction.com/getsatisf...
seems to be good guarded by the GetSat employees!

Hi Roel, yes I'll share your suggestion with the team - we are working with GetSat to come up with a permanent solution to this problem, as you can imagine they are aware we are getting clobbered and want a solution just as much as we do

Hope to get it resolved very soon.

cheers
