You also get ads if you have a google (and maybe other sites) referral link, even if you're logged in. Google compsci.ca and click on the result, you'll get ads. Refresh the page and the ads disappear.

If enough users click "report" on the first post in a topic it will be automatically removed from public view.

What if there was a rank that gave the user the ability to delete and ban users with <20 posts? Just enough power to aid in cleaning the forum when they want to, and not enough for it to be abused. It could be given to senior members maybe??

Also, don't reply to spam threads -- it just bumps them up for more people to see.

Yes and no. We can make bans based on IP addresses, but they tend to change frequently for both legitimate users and spamers. We do use a shared blocklist with other sites but some still get through. The best thing you can do if you see spam is to click the report button and give the user a ban vote (black button).

Can't the "mods" track where a user log in from, you know, ip address and stuff?

Those happen every week. They usually get deleted as soon as a mod logs in.

There is definitely less active users and new topics. However, the site is not going away anytime soon. The ad revenue still covers the hosting costs and even if that were to dry up we would just scale down the hosting to somthing cheaper.

As tony said, the forum is stagnant nowadays, DWITE is closed and no new content is being produced.
