media bistro, why do you allow this board to be attacked by SPAM posters every weekend?

That's the most activity this board has seen in a while.

At least I don't have to look at that post from the guy who writes for the Examiner who felt ripped off by someone from a nice newspaper who used his idea

it is Tues. and the SPAM from the weekend is still here
media bistro, if this is how little you care about the bulletin board, why not just pull the plug?
the only section with any activity is Current Events
where a right wing zealot dominates the board with
his obsessive postings..

This is unbelievable. I remember the days when this bulletin board actually used to have value. MediaBistro, you are running an incredibly shoddy operation these days. Maybe you should admit that you have been pushed to irrelevance by the numerous other forms of social media/media out there -- and call it a day. As in, fold and be done. You obviously care nothing about your site and how it looks/functions, at least when it comes to the forums. Very, very sad and extremely unprofessional.

I used to LOVE this board, it was the best -- and it could have stayed that way. Now the only aspect of any value is the job posting.

MB has intentionally killed this board. Anyone who doesn't see that is blind.
This board was VIBRANT a few years ago, journalists, writers, editors, tv, pr, etc., everyone exchanging IDEAS, giving advice, COMMENTING on current events. There were so many posting/so many topics, that sections had to be put up for different topics and professions.
In fact the BB was so successful that MB decided to kill it by removing the prominent link so new people could not find it, allowing trolls to dominate threads to further alienate remaining posters and allowing spam to run rampant.
All it had to do was keep a link up and moderate once in awhile.
This was deliberate. Why does a company catering to its own professionals KILL its own BB? Think about it (this BB started going downhill about the same time Gannett axed 10,000 employees ...).

The lack of a link off the homepage didn't kill this board.
The overwhelming presence of idiots, such as ranting conspiracy theorists, killed it.
