Question for Gregg...(6 posts)

Question for Gregg...Garageman
Nov 30, 2001 3:20 AM

Can you not do anything about the filth posting on the bike shots board - it really is beyond the pale and no use to anyone - and more inportantly, I'm sure that it dissuades people from posting bikes there, which is, after all, what the board is supposed to be there for?

Any help sure would be appreciated - thanks.
we had the same problem on mtbreview...gregg

...and it got so bad that we decided to shut down the ability to post comments altogether until we can get mandatory registration.

I will see what I can do till then.

Tks - how aboutgaragemen

using a filter set to catch all the usual words - we have one on the firewall at work that just dumps the mail if it detects foul language and sends a message back to the sender - don't need the last bit obviously, but the first would cure it?

Thanks Gregg.

people just use alternate spellings or stuff like h*ll, d*mn). also i remember a board that did that you would get booted for writing something like assume because it had the word "ass" in it.
okay, I just wasted the last hour cleaning up the gallery...gregg

...deleting messages and banning certain people (unfortunately not all). The real answer will be the mandatory registration to post comments, but til then thanks for the alerts.

I really hope that we won't be forced to remove the ability to post comments, it always seems like a case of the few spoiling it for the many.

Thanks Gregg. nmGarageman
