I myself am guiltt of this I was thinking when people ask " Any good hosts " or " could you point me to a reliable host " ect ect.

I have noticed many people ( myself included ) just posting links to webhosts and not providing much information about that webhost.

Its just there are a lot of spammy posts in that forum, Mabye there should be a system or just a rule that instead of just posting links, Mabye the users should give some infomation about that host.

It would help the person(s) who are asking for help a lot more...

I kinda like Ozzu's existing stance on the subject. It's not our job to be smart for people; they need to do their research and wise up about what they put their money into.

Yeah, that's been going on in that forum for as long as I've been here. But think about it: if you were a moderator here, would you really want to have to deal with all the spam in that forum on a daily basis?

To be honest Know I would not, It would be rather annoying.. Saying that I have noticed certain staff trying to stop people from doing that.

But I can see what you mean, It would be taking up their time, When they have other stuff to do.

I think you have a fair point. Maybe we should let other people see what it's like being a moderator on this forum so you have an idea on the level of spam the moderators here have to deal with.

I am not saying that it is easy SB, and it must be annoying. I respect the Job you guys do.

I was just thinking about the amount of spam in that forum that people get away with.
