I sure have noticed. It just shows you how poor the moderation is on that site. Blurtit always had a lot of spam but it was dispatched quickly when you were an admin there. Those guys have to get on the ball.

Yes I did notice! I haven't seen any here since I joined but it's starting to get out of hand on blurtit. It seems their changes in management were definitely for the worse.

I must admit I prefer the ads on the side here, rather than mixed in with the questions.

Skunky Stinkerson Korvo Dec 25, 2016

Does this site run ads to make money? if so. i would be glad to disable my adblock for this site to help support it. i didn't know it ran adds.

Absolutely. You must have spent a lot of time removing them on Blurtit but now that's it's running in kamikaze mode there's little attempt to keep on top of it.

There is a difference that's for sure!

Are there any mods on this site?

If so, who are they? Or is that a no no here too?

Rooster Tiger Paws Dec 20, 2016

Hi Tiger, at this time? I don't think there are any Mods here. At least I haven't seen any.

Pretty much the only spam I've seen here is for a moving service in Bangalore that appears from time to time. :D

I haven't seen a thing here. Pretty nice !
TheOtherTink TheOtherTink Dec 20, 2016

Yep.  The Bangalore spam is more amusing than annoying.  :)

Rooster TheOtherTink Dec 20, 2016

I just saw the Bangalore spam for the first time this morning !

TheOtherTink TheOtherTink Dec 20, 2016

The Bangalore/Hyderabad mover seemed to favor my questions with his spam.  Maybe he thought I would have to leave the country in a hurry for criticizing Hillary so much.  You-know-who was probably tattling on me to the DNC.

Rooster TheOtherTink Dec 21, 2016

:D

Corey The Goofyhawk Dec 20, 2016

Other than a few ads, this place is clear. I like it!

Marianne Dec 20, 2016

Yes, there are very few spams here, and some conventional adds.

It is very nice here.

:)

Yes, Spam on Blurtit is totally out of hand. I went on to see how things were going. I am still numb from my loss but I am trying to function.  

Rooster AncientOne Dec 25, 2016

Hello Ancient One ! Good to see you.

AncientOne AncientOne Dec 25, 2016

Hi Rooster.  I see there have been many ups and downs recently on Blurtit. I agree with Walter it is getting to a point where an individual doesn't want to wade through all the "mess". It is a shame.  Right now I am not in a position to render anyone any assistance, however in the future I will be (I pray) back up and running. So please keep me on your list should you need some assistance.

Rooster AncientOne Dec 25, 2016

I'm no longer a Mod there and neither is Angela. They wanted their own people so DS narfolk could rule the roost. I don't think I'll be on there much longer as they've been removing my answers left and right. Pretty childish but that's the way they are.

Skunky Stinkerson AncientOne Dec 25, 2016

its a shame they fired you guys as mods... their site is now on its way to the flop house!! Yahoo Answers is a good example of that!! they took away the mods and now its just a site full of porn, trolls, and spam.

Skunky Stinkerson Dec 25, 2016

not yet anyway but im sure they will make their way here as they do with every Question site.
