Question for moderators
Posted: May 3, 2010 11:50 AM

Are you able to delete specific messages out of a thread, or are you only able to delete the entire thread?

Evil Vendors have taken to inserting their dubious ad messages within a perfectly good thread, on the assumption a single message within a thread cannot be deleted.

Could you at least edit the message to remove the advertising?

If this cannot be controlled, the message board will look more and more like Craigslist, and will be less and less useful to your target user base.

Thanks.

Hi Aunt,

Yes, I can remove specific messages within a thread and keep the main thread intact. I do this when the thread has been started by a legit forum member, not a vendor or spammer.

Lately, I've been having some issues retrieving the links to all of the threads that you and the other users 'report'. Instead, I have been going through each thread and deleting the spam I see. Because of this I'm sure I miss spam messages in the more popular threads.

While I know it is time consuming, forum members can always PM names of spammers or links to threads that contain spam. I'll delete them as soon as I log on. I check the forums each business day--usually in the afternoon or around 5pm EST--and occasionally on the weekends.

Any other questions or concerns you can PM me or email me at contact@brides.com.

- Allison

Dear Allison,

Hey, great, thanks.

I'll be more specific when I report spam within a message thread, in the future.

(I'm a moderator, too, on another forum. I know what it's like.)

Dear Allison,

I just sent you a PM with message locations of 6 spam posts from the same vendor.
