    This issue has already been reported several times (originally by myself :D) fact of the matter is that the spambots were waiting :(
    But in all seriousness, I'm fairly sure something will be done ....eventually. The suggestion of not being able to post status updates until you reach a certain number of posts (out of the newcomers group?) was put forward, and personally I think it's a good one -- but quite obviously it has not been implemented (yet?).

    Can mods delete statuses? the only reason I posted here is because that one has been there a while and hasn't been deleted yet

    I just like how my status is saved forever in that image. :3

    And I'm guessing they'll just wait until more statuses come and bump it off.

    Of course we can. Probably no mod was online to delete it (or nobody noticed).

    I put a filter on "[URL=..", which is what original spambots were using. I guess I'll make it so you need to have at least 1 post.
