Andem, it may take a small change in how you do things. If you're deleting hundreds of posts everyday, I really feel for you.
With respect spammers targeting your forum at times when mods are sleeeping - why are first time posters trusted enough to make public posts? That's crazy. When I wake up and look at my forum, there's (sometimes!) overnight spam. But it's not visible to the public. It's very simply taken care of: I delete the account/s behind them and all the spam goes. If their posts aren't going public, these spammers won't keep making posts! They'll figure out after 2-3 posts that it's a waste of time and move on.
1. Have a clear explanation of what you consider fluff.
2. Expect everyone to comply.
We follow Brett's rules here. My members follow my rules. It's quite simple - your members have to follow yours.
All users with less than a certain number of posts are automatically filtered with Akismet, have no PM privileges and lack access to doing many things.
Yes, but they can make public posts?! They've earned no trust, why do they have this main privilege?
Do you delete accounts that aren't contributing to the forum? What's your policy on lurkers?
