Dear Admin,
Kindly remove all threads that are not related at all to properties / real estate. This is very annoying & unhealthy. I see people actually put porn links & selling their handphones etc in this forums. What a shame.

It seems that the spammers is using kind of back entry when posting .. I don't think they're doing this manually .. have you checked if you've the latest software installed? There must be a way to get rid of these spammers.

Anyway, not trying to be smart here since I've never run any discussion board before .. but measures taken as per the following thread might help in reducing the spammers.

Dear admin, I noticed the spammers are dumping the email on weekends. Maybe more diligence on wekeends maybe. Anyway, I appreciate all efforts done to reduce these spammers/ sporners.

Its already hard to get good forummers nowadays. Now these menace makes the effort to make some forum useful even more dificult now.

Spammer spam all the time and we spent a lot of time to delete them. Deleting post is a manual process and hence in between, you will still see some spam which will subsequently be deleted.

The forum is being spam everyday but then we delete them during weekdays. Weekend, there is less deletion and hence you will see a lot of spam.

OK, in addition to porn links and so on, now there are overzealous bank loan salesmen who keep posting inside each thread!

You're reading a topic on Bangsar apartments, for example, then suddenly one of these people posts "Hi! If you need loan, please call me!".

It's in a lot of the topics. This is extremely irritating and inconsiderate!

Sometime spammers also send us reply related to properties.
