A gross, simple and clear example of multiple posting for the sake of "getting posts on the board" without adding anything constructive at all.
Obviously posts to be removed, in other words. No ambiguity.
During the course of the day, over about an 8-hour period, I happened to report 4 or 5 of these posts, and of course all of them were duly removed by the moderators (for which many thanks, of course ).
So, why am I starting a thread about this? Well, here's the thing ...
In the report box, each time, I mentioned that "almost all his posts are like this". It took me only a second to discover this, using the search function.
So, naturally enough, I'm wondering why the moderators are apparently allowed to delete only one post a time? It's hard to understand this.
I'd happily and quickly "report" all his 10 other posts, too, one at a time, as I effectively did - over a period - with the first five of them, if it weren't for the one-minute flood-interval between reports.
Those posts are all still on the board. (I haven't reported them.)
I appreciate that the moderators do a great and efficient job, even at weekends, even at funny times of day, and they kindly remove what I report. I'm clearly not complaining about them at all. But it seems clear that for some reason they're unable to deal with situations like the (actually very common!) one I'm referring to, here, and in conjunction with the flood interval, that makes it too difficult to take care of.
I know the forum values members' "reports" of such posts, not only because they're they're acted on, but also because some moderators kindly send occasional notes to thank people for reporting them. But this is surely an anomaly that can easily be resolved, either by enabling/allowing the moderators to delete multiple posts (when attention is drawn to them, I mean), or even perhaps just by reducing the flood interval and thereby making them easier to report? That would resolve it?
I'd be very grateful indeed for a response from an Administrator, please, as asking the moderators themselves about this seems unproductive (and I don't want to sound like I'm tactless or complaining, when I ask them, of course!).
