                Good thing I'm out of coffee. That would have been an ugly *splort*...

                    No More Spam!

                    Having recently helped clear out several hundred posts by a spammer on a local forum I moderate, I'm all for getting rid of the spammers.

                    The spamming I've seen here is nothing compared to what we've dealt with on that local board.

                    Ironically, I just read that spam is actually down. The spammers are going after social networking and the like. Same with the hackers. How's the anti-virus software on your smart phone?

                    Trolls show up pretty much everywhere. First line of defense is to ignore them. Eventually they'll either get bored and give up, or they'll get so obnoxious that everyone agrees they have to go (even the WT).
                    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                      And just curious...what would we consider this thread to be? Personally, I'd open up a BIG ole econo sized can of spam and spread it ALL over this thread...Seriously guys, we get it, Trolls and Spam suck. Let the mods take care of it. Stop whining about it all the time, your almost as bad as they are.
                      Opinions expressed by myself here are just that, mine. And not that of ANY organization or service I am affiliated with.

                        The problem is... the moderation here is haphazard at best. People have come back after being banned more times than sequels of Rocky movies...

                        There are many of us that have asked if we could moderate and nip some of these issues in the bud, our requests have fallen upon deaf ears....

                        If you want to insult your brothers and sisters who give a fat rat's rump about what goes on here and the future of the fire service... then you are no better than the trolls and spammers yourself.

                        Just my $2's worth... Deputies have to pay a little more.

                          Neither, and can we add idiots that believe having absolutely no basic firefighting skills still earns them the right to be called a firefighter?

                            Sorry, but to me a firefighter is the 25-year veteran FDNY , the 10 year veteran suburban volunteer, the 5 year rural member who has responded to 4 structure fires over that time and has gone interior once, the exterior member that drives the tanker or grabs tools, the fire police, the support folks that change bottles or take pictures, and the junior members who do the little jobs.

                            If they all show commitment, which has nothing to do with the number of certs or the number of fires they have fought they are all involved in the operation. They are all involved in fighting fires at one level or another. They are all part of the firefighting team. They are all firefighters.

                            It's not about what they have achieved. It's about the commitment to be there.

                            Sorry for the derail. Carry On.

                            Train to fight the fires you fight.

                              Dude I'm not insulting anyone, I'm just pointing out that your not helping by making threads like this. Your just adding to the clutter, and fueling the fire that feeds the real trolls. You think they are going to stop when they see this? Hell no, they're gonna say "Ha now I'm really starting to annoy them, time to kick it up a notch"

                              Those of us that are hear to learn, and here to share our knowledge with the rest of the fire service shouldn't have to sift through pages of threads like this that contribute nothing to the forums.

                              We need to do our best to find a solution to this problem, not become part of it. We're all here to learn, so lets just do our best to ignore the trouble makers. Insulting and fighting amongst each other wont help either.
