    It is time to give those of us in Asian time zones, super-powers to delete threads. :cool:

    We promise not to abuse them. :devil:

    i believe the mods have said, that they prefer us to report spam by flagging them, or if they get real bad, report in transmod. bumping threads without content is less preferable. so i am told anyways.

    They're just clicking submit again if the page takes a while to load, I suppose.

    This is definitely it. You'll also notice they are new users. I'm sure for whatever reason, it is taking a second to load, so they click it 5-6 times. Still should have a mod clean it up if possible.

    Definitely in favor of giving stitches mod power to delete some of these spam/junk threads :)

    a) I'm not quite sure why Stitches isn't a mod already
    b) that wouldn't fix the problem as the guy has to sleep (beards don't just grow themselves)

    I liked the suggestion earlier about threads which are flagged by a certain number of senior members (or members with a certain post count) being placed in some sort of thread limbo until a mod comes around and approves or removes.
