They also make a lot of regular posters avoid posting too though. The board has been slowing to a crawl lately. Lots of people reading and not posting I think.

Sorry to say, but this has been me.

DEFINITELY agree with this. I miss the quick reply more than anything else reply-related.

I read every single day, but I rarely ever post. I miss quick reply. And I don't go digging in the lumpy threads, either. Just the last page when I click "new posts"

The question I always get "wrong" is 11+15. 26. Wrong. 26. Wrong. Twenty-six. Wrong. Oh good grief I give up!

ETA: I think some of us are chatting or have moved to FB, too. I ask questions on there from my phone, and get notifications of replies. It's easier.

I read the new posts almost every day. I rarely post due to the questions, lack of quick reply, and because I don't have a laptop anymore. So I can only use my phone. I tried tapatalk and it just isn't my thing.

And when you finally get the answer right, you realize you hit "Preview" instead of "Submit" and you're going to have to answer a whole new pesky question before you can post.

I'm more of a reader than a poster, not a lot going on in life to post about. Although I did score a 10lb bag of future Bully Sticks this week. Considering THAT was the high point...

Irritated me to begin with, but honestly don't mind now.

Takes all of 3 seconds longer to post, AND stops the spam.... Worth it

I post from my phone regularly, and my ipad.

If anyone can suggest a better way to stop the spam....?

I still can't figure out why we had so much spam relative to other larger boards. Is the software that outdated? This is all treating the symptom.

Our system IS draconian. Whether its worth it or not is a separate problem.

Yeah I hate to say it but I miss quick reply too

Is there a way to bring QR back and make it where a question pops up with the little QR window thing? The bigger boards have QR and the same amount of mods as we have and they seem to control their spam, maybe we could create an anti-spam bot or something?

If you have over 300 posts, I think it's safe to say you're not spam.

I love tapatalk because of the lack of questions. I forget they're there cause I use tapatalk for 93% of my forum trolling.

I write a lot & delete it because I'm paranoid that people I know in RL could read everything I write. Silly fear. And it a seems as if I only know how to hit 'send' after a few drinks :P
