Is it really possible that nothing can be done to rid this site of these intrusive spammers. No less than 17 at the moment!!!
I only ever see one person who I think is a 'bona fide' moderator actually clearing the boards of these posts.
Surely Italian Genealogy has more than ONE moderator? Though I can't find anywhere where moderators names are listed and to whom we can/should turn to for help. It also seems that any request for help to the administration falls on deaf ears too, as they are often ignored for months or even totally.
I really can't remember the last time I saw a name listed under the "Staff Online" list on the r/h sidebar...
So who ARE the moderators here? Are they 'Staff' or aren't they? Who should be advised when things go awry or there is (yet another) SPAM invasion?
Well Nuccia is certainly the most active moderator, and from what I understand has had to carry more than her share of the weight. She works like 2-11AM and then sleeps. Let's not even go into the fact that she has her own forum and moderates on two others. Unfortunately this means the spammers sometime escape her attention right away.
You have to remember this is a free website, brought to us by the generosity of Edmondo. They will be cleared eventually, and the spammer banned. In the meantime I think we really shouldn't complain too much right?
Edmondo has informed me that due to personal issues he will be unable to address this issue personally at this time so I am to do what is necessary to "clean up" the board. Unfortunately I only have limited access to certain areas at this time so I can not permanently bann members but I will be more then happy to remove the posts!
Sorry for the inconvenience, folks! We'll get this straightened out yet!
I'd like to extend my best wishes to your daughter, you and the entire family. This is a difficult time and I want you to know you're in my prayers. I'll ask the priest at my church to include your daughter in the special intentions during mass this coming Sunday.
I have resolved myself to be positive,....positive attitude=positive energy....I have spent to much time thinking the worst. It's not
helping Elizabeth, her children or myself.
Everyone's good wishes and prayers mean the world to me......
God Bless you all.....
Nuccia.....I have a clear slate for Wednesday, will call you then.
