    I have noticed that when a member makes a short post, sometimes an attempt is made to get them to provide more information, many times with no result. For example, this post from a thread started a month ago:

    Thread: how can i know best keyword to my site??


    Of course, sudhakar1 did not respond. I have seen other examples, including some where other members asked the member posting to expand upon their thought. Every time, with only one exception that I know of, there is no response.

    Therefore, effective immediately, I am going to "Unapprove" every post of this type that I see. I will also report posts that I see in forum sections that I do not moderate. Hopefully, taking this step will lead to more informative, more helpful posts.

    That's really a great action to take joeroxx. I personally think these type of posts can be considered as spam. I also think a post can be short but the things stated should be clear to the viewers.

    I hope to see positive changes in BAF with this effect.
