I agree. The fact that this is the first that you have seen this goes a long way to show how hard we work to keep spam out of the forum. We cannot catch everyone as they join, but every attempt is made to catch them before they post and to remove posts before it is viewed by too many. My 9 year old is also a duster and so I understand your concern about keeping this clean. This post was removed as soon as a mod discovered it, but unfortunately only after 20 views. 20 views is a very high amount of viewers for spam on our forum. We usually catch it sooner. However, like any public forum, things can and do get in.

My apologies to you and your family for that post. I am proud to be a part of this project and it is wonderful that your family is also involved.
By the way, I edited your post for content, so it is also viewer friendly. Sorry!

WorWizard,

Please accept my most sincere apologies. Our moderators have been doing an amazing job keeping the forum clean from spam. Hopefully, most of the forum community is unaware of this, but the forum is spammed nearly constantly and the moderators have been there to clean up as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, a nasty post such as the one you saw goes undetected for a short while (30 minutes in this case!).

Over the past couple of weeks we've seen an increase in spam posts, so I am going to be working to install additional measures to prevent spammers from being able to post.

Thanks for your understaning and thanks to the DustMods for everything they do.
