We have your back Kao. If we need to send angry letters to the devs then so be it!
I'm happy to send angry letters too (or jovial letters if you'd prefer) just point the way and they'll feel the wrath/love/whatever.

I'm late for my other job yet again because of the need to remove a pile of spammers manually first thing in the morning. It's really ******* me off that no one will either do something about this, or give me access to the code to do it myself, and I'm not really sure what to do about it at this point. Something needs to change.
It's understood (by me at least) that you get the short end of the stick with this, being one of the only people who can properly fix the forums after a spam attack. When I'm ******** about it, I'm ******** about the general Powers That Be and not the moderators/admins stuck trying to fix the mess as best they can with inadequate tools. Just wanted to let you know that it's not directed at you.
I know, and believe me i share all of that frustration. I kind of pitched a bit of a fit this morning about this siuation, so it looks like the dev time is being moved up in priority, That being said, i've removed about 400 threads with the words "kitchen" and or "Baba" in the title since this morning too. Should not take an act of god to get certain things added to the filter system.
Feel free to send letters if you want. I don't know that they will help at this point since things are moving forward theoretically though.
Thanks for continuing to put up with these ongoing attacks.
