First of all, one should mark spam as spam instead of engaging with it.


Maybe we can create a post on how to do this and pin it.

Hope this site doesn’t get a lot of spam. I haven’t noticed nearly as much as I have on some other sites, so hopefully it won’t ever get that way.

Have users post a deposit of 0.25 LTC, for any violation of group standards user will be fined 0.025 LTC. If it cost money to spam people won’t do it.

Have you thought that bitcoin only exists because of the struggle against spam? Hashcash (bitcoin’s main algorithm) is a economic solution to the spam problem.

Bitcoin would be as popular if there was no such thing as spam, so NO.

Proof of work (POW) is a algorithm designed to fight spam. Hashcash and Merkle-tree are the main components of Bticoin.

I login on average once or twice a day to see what is going on. Usually I will have a quick look at what is at the top of the threads list.
If you want a guaranteed way to bring it to the attention of myself and the other moderators here use the “report” function. This creates a notification for us.

Good question. Certainly, @litecoin on TG and r/litecoin on Reddit have fallen into the abyss of unusual activity. Are any mods here also mods there that could help improve the LTC community, or are they centralized here? I hope not.

This forum certainly deserves to be both protected from the same issues and also promoted beyond giveaways; the information here, like with David’s and Jay’s posts, is excellent.

Ypur call will go unheard unfortunaly. The will to change is not present I fear.

There certainly is a strong undertow to create a positive community, the need is certainly there and the coin itself deserves it. David’s, Jay’s, and Charlie’s and others posts deserve a large quality platform.
