we are still fairly split on this one, would new members and old alike like to share an opinion?

I think heavier moderation will cause more problems than it solves.

Chinese viagra adverts get wiped as soon as they are reported.

A friendly bit of guidance is all it needs for genuine but uninformed new members.

If that escalates into a bun fight the delete button comes into force.

I think the lack of moderation has been one of the key pluses of this forum.

Limiting posting links would be good but it is not an installed feature im afraid...

To be fair Dan I think it's gone totally out of fashion? You just don't hear of people having it anymore, that and corned beef. Sort of thing my gran used to have but Spam is definitely not that common anymore

Corned beef hash has become more popular than spam fritters... This has helped the demise of spam I believe .....

That maybe so Tim in your part of the world, but up here in sunny Essex I can't recall the last time I heard of it being served or saw it being consumed!
Maybe I'm not looking in the right places
I think, as Dan rightly says, there's less Spam around

TBH the demise of Spam is no bad thing in my book, I like to eat meat that has not been thorough a factory if I can help it, local farm Wigborough Traditional Meats are the current favourite

Sorry Dan........were you not talking about the canned variety?
I think the Spam conversation is as, if not more serious, than the moderation question

I don't think we need either

i personally thinkthe moderation is ok as it is and if i dont want to read something thats how i do it most that do come here and try selling etc get short shrift and realise they have cooked their goose so to speak and dissapear. i think it works well as it is established members of the group put upstarts in their place and thats fine by me.
