TMF Guys:

This site has become a spam-riddled garbage pit.  I'll give you two days to solve this, or I shall never post nor read again.  SeekingAlpha dot com (with over 500,000 members) has their act together.

I, and I'd bet many other members, would be just as happy to converse there.  Keep waffling...you'll lose me.  And I predict many other active and useful members will make the same decision.

As always, make your own decision.  See you at SeekingAlpha, guys.

I won't just abandon CAPS in two days, I like the members here too much.  But this is a serious problem and MF needs to make some compromises and take care of the situation.

1) Either require picks before players can blog - this will not have a large effect on CAPS ratings, stop hiding behind that claim.  60 spammers making 60 ratings in CAPS, compared to 50000?  And you can blast away their bogus ratings when you block their accounts if they spam.

2) Waiting periods before blogging, a couple days wait isn't terrible and won't adversely affect your membership.

3) Employ a CAPS rating system.  Let me rate Donnerv as a five star caps blogger, and then let me filter so that bloggers (spammers) who have no stars are not visible on the blog page.  See a site like Slashdot to see their comment rating system, and how it knocks out anonymous annoying comments.

 I have posted over and over that this Is all related to the re-make of the home page. Many of our best bloggers have vanished,and It all coincides with a less user frindly HOME PAGE. The garbage pit IS THE HOME PAGE !   What a mess of advertising and useless Information at th expense of THE BUZZ BOX....    TS

I shall talk with SeekingAlpha on how to set up a page called "ExCaps" to allow us to reassemble in a format similar to our present status that we can all click on and go to.

Then we can continue our sometimes sensible (or not) discussions.

Donner, you're being incredibly obnoxious. You waste so much space talking about anti-spamming that its almost as much as the actual spamming.

I don't think the folks at TMF are going to cry if you leave, especially not if you are giving an ultimatum.

Also, constant advertising of another site on this site is pretty disrespectful.  If you don't like it here you don't have to stay.

However, I agree with TS.

Fools, we do apologize for the spam, and are working to deal with it. We built the place with the good members in mind, not the leaches and bottom-feeders. It takes some time to gear up to new threats, but we are removing the garbage as soon as we see it.

Though I agree that the spam should be stopped (at the time of writing my blog on the topic is the most-recommended), leaving CAPS for this reason is not in my plans. C'mon, we put up with alstry and all potitical posters. On occasion, I even read those rants to have a good laugh...
