When I go on FHO every day, the last thing I do is to look at new members. While doing that I've picked, and reported, spam comments to moderators. However, the following is an example of one of the ones that's not been handled by the moderators, though there are quite a few others. The comments in this site are just full of spam and have not been dealt with. Hopefully, by posting this, maybe something will be done, as my reporting efforts have failed.

PS I've done the same on BHO and the spam remains.

It really is a problem, especially in the music area. Maybe this will help.

Not a problem for me.   With all of the resources available due to these somewhat odd posts, I've grown new hair, smited my enemies, cast spells, lost weight and found true love (and made millions of dollars to boot) with a Nigerian princess.  (I sure hope my wife doesn't find out about this).

And, to be serious (a rare occurrence), yes, it's too bad we have so many bad actors on the FHO.  The BHO does a pretty good job of winnowing out the "chaff".  I suppose due to much more traffic, they have moderators that do a pretty good job of cleaning things up.   As the traffic here is not great, it's probably not worth the effort to have moderator's to do that kind of  "spring cleaning".

I've always wondered, why to these interlopers even bother?  What do they gain?   Most people (having more than a room temperature IQ) just ignore such posts.  Still, it's annoying.

Just checked the link. The comments are all gone, finally, yah! However, there is still a mention that there are "11 Comments", i.e. there used to be 11 comments.
