 Remove Advertisements?

Is this the place/way to alert Moderators that the forum is being used for advertisements?

Both the foreign language threads are ads with links to web sites unrelated to revival. Secular solicitation.

Saints, throughout the 9 years SermonIndex.net has been running there have been advertisments on the site from time to time. Even a list of sponsors and also periods of time where there were 100% no ads or sponors. I have put back on the site these ads for a short season and am praying about a better alternative. One possibility is other ministries to sponsor the site.

Also we have been praying for more monthly supporters for this ministry to supplement or replace the ads: http://www.sermonindex.net/donate.php

Thanks for your prayers in this regard.

 Re:

Brother Greg I don't beliieve its a complaint of SI using Advertisements but Spambots using the Forum to advertise random things like Purses, shoes, etc.

I must have missed them because I usually do a pretty good job of notifying you of these.

I believe the best course of action is to simply send brother Greg an email with the username, a link to the thread posted, and maybe a very brief expression of why you think its a Spambot or someone taking advantage of Sermonindex's forum.

God Bless,
Matthew

 Re:

Have you thought about implementing a CAPTCHA to prevent the spambots? Or something as simple as asking the poster to answer a very simple math question to verify it is a human user?
