Default Tired of the "Watch" postings!

I don't know how the rest of you feel, but I'm sick and tired of seeing various "new members" post spam messages on the forums that have NOTHING to do with the Scion xB! Instead they only say "Watch ... online" and give a list of things that have NOTHING to do with the Scion xB.

Can the moderators do something about this?

This forum is actually part of a huge network of forums (it's just a business) with very, very little moderation. If you report the posts they will eventually go away, but I don't think there's anyone actively monitoring any of the dozens of forums in the network.

To be honest I'm not sure why I chose this one in particular to spend a lot of time on; I hate the 10 minute edit rule, and the spam posts really are becoming a nuisance. Maybe I'll hit up the other big ones and see if I can find a more comfortable place to focus on

I see the same spam on ClubxB. I don't go to ScionLife much anymore. So not sure if it has the spam issue or not.

ClubXB and NewscionXB are the owned and operated by the same company; Scionlife is pretty much the only viable alternative right now.
