I'm so sick of all the spam. I'm sick of all the non-sports topics on the message boards. Where is the mods? Isn't this there job? I will never understand how people can come to a website exclusively about sports and talk about music, their personal life, or other non-sports topics. Fannation used not to be this bad. It's like the mods just let this place go to hell. Maybe I'm just a grouch I'm not sure. Give me your thoughts on this.

Hey, it's your friendly neighborhood moderator here. Just wanted to check in and comment on your post. Sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the way things have been on the site. That said, we are keeping an eye on the website. Occasionally things slip us for a bit but I assure you there is a lot more spam and trash on the site that gets taken down immediately than you know. Yes, we're hear to clean up the site but we're also human. Sometimes it takes a while to get the site completely clean. Part of that comes in a checks and balances format where members alert us to inappropriate content, and we really appreciate when you and others do that. Part of that is simply a matter of time, as we comb the desert of the site. The point is that we do care and are staying aware of what's going on.

As we're employees of the site, I can understand wanting to point the finger at us but the fact is that we get just as frustrated by spammers as you do. I started here as a member who regularly blogged and did Throwdowns. I can't stand Dupes or spammers. It doesn't mean I don't make errors from time to time. So thank you in advance for being patient and understanding in what we're doing, and thank you for continuing to be a member of the community.
