Due to spam activity, all forums apart from Questions & Answers: Getting Started now requires some BOINC credit to allow posting. If you are a complete newcomer, please check existing Questions & Answers first.

That's a great solution - who knows - maybe the spambots will start crunching now too!

Maybe it would be helpful is the Red "Report" button worked to draw someone's attention to those postings.

I believe the RED X was disabled because it was abused by tons of people clicking it for posts that were not offensive and were simply posts that expressed an opinion they did not like. IMHO that was the wrong reaction. Rather than disable the Red X they should suspend the abusers' posting privileges for a couple weeks or banish them.

The bottom line is that the Red X requires manual intervention by an admin and they have been traditionally scarce at this project. Months pass before they bother to check in and years pass before they lift a finger to do anything.
